I was interested in reading "Grace" by Max Lucado because I have always had a problem understanding what "grace" means in relation to God. Also, this is the first book that I have read by Max Lucado.
First, I want to explain that I grew up in the United Methodist faith but after marrying, I converted to Catholicism. I have been Catholic for many years and have heard people talk about "grace" but never quite truly understood exactly what it meant.
Well, after reading the twelve chapters in the book, "Grace", I have a clearer understanding. I now realize that I have settled for a wimpy grace and need to open my heart to the full-fledged super duper "grace". Being "open" is the key. I need to open my heart to receive more of God's grace.
I like how Lucado shares the point about God's grace being so overwhelming that one simply can't contain it all - it actually bubbles over so there is more for everyone to freely give and that is exactly what God ask of all of us.
I also like how there is a "Reader's Guide" at the end of the book that you can complete on your own or with a group. I belong to a "faith group" and I might mention that we should try this together. I definitely feel that following the guide would be very beneficial either way because this is definitely a book about a concept that should be read more than just once.
I thank Max Lucado for writing a book on the topic of "grace" to help me better understand it. I plan on reading more of his books because there are plenty that I would enjoy.
