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.

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.

I recommend this book to everyone; whether you have been a Christian for many years, three days, or even if you are not a Christian and you desire to learn more about Grace. Death of the Modern Superhero takes the facts of the gift of salvation through Christ and spells it out in a clear way for anyone of any faith level to understand. Most importantly, it is not an opinionated book on the subject; all the points are Scriptural and grounded in the Bible itself. I found the book to be enjoyable and amusing, and very personally challenging.

I really enjoyed reading this book. How so often I fall in the trap of comparing how I live my life with how others live theirs and who is being the best "superhero" in different areas of life. This book will inspire you to lay down the comparisons and to begin living by grace and not get caught up in the rules and regulations of the Christian life. Chris also does a great job bringing in balance, showing that though we can live by grace it doesn't mean we can abuse this wonderful gift.
