I realize that applied to Jesus first, but that phrase ran through my mind several times as I read this book. There are things I have wondered about for years, like the tension of faith and the mystery of faith. He explained it. Every page I underlined a memorable quote. By memorable I mean, some life changing words that changed that the way I think about God, other people, and myself. I can not say enough good things about this book. I will be reading this book again and again to remind myself of these truths.

Grace can be such a fuzzy concept. At times I have tried to grab hold of it only to find it slip out of my grasp. This book gave me a firm hold on grace. It is no longer something fuzzy. It is now a concrete concept. I understand grace. I understand God's bigness and how special it is that he came to me and loved me.

In this book, Chris Lautsbaugh really did tell me everything I ever did or tried to do or thought. I feel like he was in my head while writing this book. Read it and you will find the same thing!

Simple, clear, and speaks straight to a struggle most can identify with: not measuring up, not feeling good enough, always climbing the ladder. I'm already recommending it to friends and picking up a few as gifts. Two top demographics I would recommend it to: someone in Christian ministry or a new convert to Christianity.

Living in a world that ties value to performance, this book is a breath of fresh air to people like me, who have burned out on the treadmill of "trying harder" and could use some Good News. Rooted in Scripture, Chris Lautsbaugh, takes us on a journey in understanding God's love and provision to keep us off of the treadmill of performance. Its simplicity and practicality make this book one that I will read again to remind myself that God's grace really does change everything.

So many Christians today have worn themselves out trying to serve twisted versions of God feeling compelled to strive ever harder & harder to earn his approval or prove themselves or to subconsciously earn their salvation. This book lays a fantastic foundation and explains in such an easy manner the foundations of our faith and the true freedom that comes in Christ. It will open your eyes to just how Good the "Good News" really is! I enjoyed the stories and the plain language that makes it easy to follow and hard to put down for anyone from someone just exploring the idea of Christianity to a mature believer of many decades. I've read most of the major grace books out there from the major authors and feel that this one stands on its own and is refreshingly practical.

Whether you have been relying on God to be your superhero for years, or are just beginning to tire of trying to be your own superhero, this book will encourage and challenge you. The author takes you step by step to understanding grace in a hands-on, life applicable way. His knowledge of the Bible and insight into the times in which it was written helps bring a fresh understanding of God's grace. The authors description of redemption was a revelation in my life as I realized for the first time the extent of the freedom Jesus has paid to give me! We can all fall into the futile cycle of relying solely on ourselves to get through life, but let this book encourage you to remember to lay down your cape and tights and depend on Christ - our true Hero!

Never have I read in one place, both the deep theological concept of grace and what it practically means for believers laid out in such simple words. Chris does an amazing job of simplifying the way that Grace is understood by using practical every day examples without watering it down or skewing any of the Biblical truth on the topic. Also brings a balanced and clear approach to the time old question we have all asked: "If people over-realize the concept of grace, won't they just keep sinning?" This book really is for everyone, a new believer or someone who has been walking with the Lord for decades can either get a foundation of their faith or a good solid call back to the basics of what it means to be a Christ follower.
