5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Honest, Confessional and Humble October 12, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
In 'Gracenomics,' Mike Foster thoughtfully engages an old conversation with a fresh and new imagination. What is grace and how do we relate to it? Mike suggests that we spend grace as freely as we receive it.

The book is beautiful--literally, the design and layout are captivating and creative--and beautifully unpacks some tender conversations around judgment, failure and second chances.

And the framework is pretty solid too, the subtitles gently pulled me forward into the conversation with hooks like (some of the best):

*Pez Dispensers of Grace
*Becoming A Person of No Reputation
*Authentic Harshness
*Vulture Culture
*Don't Make A Career Out of Being A Victim
*Make Friends With Your Shadow
*The Forgiveness Instinct
*People Are Not Evil, They Are Weak
*Transparent Mistakes
*Don't Be So Dang Serious
*Don't Diss Your Disaters
*Join the Scandal

After finishing it, I had to put it down and sit in the impact of what I had just read. The stories and lessons are gifts and the book may be one of the best things I've ever read on what grace, acceptance and inclusion can be when we throw ourselves at the mercy of grace.

'Gracenomics' makes you feel safe, that it's safe to go to some of the painful and hidden places in our lives. 'Gracenomics' makes you feel free, that we're free to explore the best and worst of ourselves and others with a posture of acceptance and celebration. 'Gracenomics' makes you feel hopeful, that even after all the mistakes we've made, hope is still waiting for us with open arms.

I usually don't say this, but I'm actually grateful for this little book packed full of inviting truths.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sooo ready to Join The Scandal! October 28, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First, let me say that I come from a huge NON grace filled background. I've had to learn and am still learning about grace towards others and especially towards myself. But...

I finished Gracenomics, closed the book, re-opened and started on my second run through. But before I did that I sent this text out to some friends...

"Gracenomics a must read!! Super short but super huge. I'm crying from laughing, conviction and just the mere thought we as people could love this way!"

Mike Foster's approach, in my opinion, was right on point! He touched deep matters in a light but penetrating way. So many times I went from cracking up to gripping my chest with either a sense of conviction or deep desire to be that grace giving person. And...wishing that sort of grace had been extended to me.

The written names of God, Jesus and Holy Spirit may not be plastered all over the pages of Gracenomics but if you "know" God then you see Him on absolutely every page of this small but powerful book. Jesus spoke in parables...stories. He spoke the language the people understood. Gracenomics is a book of 'along the way conversation'. Along the way in our personal lives, with others AND at work. It is filled with humor, stories and encouragement that we can and must do better at this Grace thing.

What didn't I like? I wanted more!!!!!! But in all honestly sometimes leaving wanting more is a really good thing.

I, for one, left this book ready to Join The Scandal (chp.5) of Gracenomics!
Definitely the next book for our book club!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for grace filled living October 14, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
"Not only is grace possible, but that grace really does matter."

Let that sink in for a minute.

That statement is really at the core of the new book Gracenomics: Unleash The Power of Second Chance Living by Mike Foster. Foster, co-founder of the organization People of the Second Chance, takes a bold, honest stand for the power of grace and the way it can transform our lives and the lives of those we interact with every single day.

Foster examines grace not just outward toward others (which is how most people think of grace) but within as well. He examines the way we can allow ourselves to dwell in a position of victimization rather than taking a sitaution where we've been legimately victimized, given ourselves the grace to know a situation may not be our fault and move forward. And if it IS our fault, to allow ourselves to look in the mirror and accept forgiveness from the person we see staring back at us.

I loved this powerful passage from Mike:

If we were honest with ourselves we would see the ongoing injustice and oppression doesn't lie within the event, but in the belief that we are powerless to move on.

How often do many of us believe we're powerless to move on from something that happened in our past? A hurt that's lingered from our youth? A crude insult given to us in high school or that teacher who told us we were just too stupid to figure things out? Perhaps something said to you by an ex-spouse on their way out of the courthouse? All of these things are powerless to stop us from moving on if we allow ourselves the grace to do it.

One of the strengths of Gracenomics is the way Foster presents the material. No long dissertation on any one point or dozens of pages of statistics and research studies.

When People of the Second Chance (POTSC) was launched last year, I thought what a great concept! The world loves to see heroes fall, and loves to cast away and judge when people do dumb things. The church and Christians are regularly caricatured as negative naysayers and judgmental hypocrites who don't practice what they preach (grace).

We all know about grace, and fortunately if we are followers of Christ we all are in receipt of more grace from Him than we could ever deserve. So why then do we find it so hard to share grace with others and even with ourselves? That is the simple, but amazingly deep question Mike Foster tackled in his new book, Gracenomics: Unleash the Power of Second Chance Living. I received a pre-release electronic copy to review, and it was a quick and pleasurable read.

Mike Foster has a style of writing that is accessible to everyone. No convoluted, complex writing on complex subjects, just simple and to the point. He covers sections about why grace matters, how you can extend gracenomics to yourself (stop beating yourself up), how you can extend gracenomics to others, and how gracenomics can even transform your work place.

The catchy subtitles paint great word pictures and provide immediate "aha" moments--sections like: Pez Dispensers of Grace, Vulture Culture, Don't Make a Career Out of Being a Victim, Grace for Grace Killers, and Practice the Art of Generous Listening. There are "Action & Insight" sections where you can pause and take a look in the mirror at areas of your own life to see where you can improve in giving grace to others. There are also numerous real-life stories of grace scattered throughout the book that will inspire you to live a more grace-filled life.

A bunch of nonsense. Don't waste your money or time on a book that says nothing. Did not like the way it was written or the subject matter. If I could rate no star, I would.

Such a simple concept yet so many people live without grace. A quick read with lots of little "aha" moments. The bottom line is treating people better than we think they "deserve". Read more
