In a straight-forward, grace honoring expose', D.R Silva answers the critics in this short but powerful book about the half-truths being told against Grace teachers. The first thing that struck me in the book was how this attack has been going on since Paul first heard the gospel from Jesus in the wilderness for three years. Those that attack grace literally are attacking Jesus and Paul his apostle of grace... of course this is nothing new.

D.R goes point by point, half truth by half truth and clearly and scripturally shares what Grace teachers ARE saying, not what people SAY they are saying. As a person who has studied, learned, been changed by the Grace message for the last 16 years, I can say honestly this is one of the best books I have read to bring clarity to the nonsense that is being said about the Grace movement. My only negative about the book is that it's too short. I couldn't believe when I was done. Its definitely worth the read, whether you are a "gracer" or a person who has been warned against believing the Gospel (good news) by a well meaning Pastor. Read it, pass it on and rejoice in this Happy God who loves us so much that he has freed us from bondage to sin.

I've spent the last couple of years in the 'grace camp'. John Crowder, Benjamin Dunn, Joseph Prince, Andrew Farley, Paul Ellis, and various other grace speakers have been some of my main influences on my thoughts towards God.

I'm aware of the whole 'hyper-grace' controversy and I was very interested to see what this book would have to say, especially in light of the extreme criticism coming from various parts of the church. What I wasn't expecting was to discover one of the best presentations on grace I have read. This book responded to the accusations raised against hyper-grace in a calm manner that never once attacked it's critics and explained the beliefs of those in the 'grace camp' in simple and straight forward ways.

If you're looking to find a refutation to the attacks on 'hyper-grace' that is not only correct theologically but actually embodies the grace of Jesus Christ, this book does that. I'd recommend this for no other reason than that the author handles the criticism focused at 'hyper-grace' in ways that are oozing with graciousness and yet maintains his position without compromise.

This book is devoid of much of the emotional manipulation common in Christian products, but it still packs a punch and will shock you with just how good the good news is.

D. R. Silva has done a wonderful job of explaining many of the objections people have against the Grace Movement happening today. I agree with many of his points, and I would suggest this booklet for anyone who doesn't really understand what people teaching God's grace really stand for, as well as anyone interested in learning more and questioning things for themselves rather than taking the view handed to them from their local church pulpit. I myself found it encouraging even though I've been learning and growing in the reality of God's grace and what that means for the world for a long time. Definitely worth a read!

Daniel Silva doesn't just make a bunch of preposterous claims and leave it at that. He backs them up with scripture, and really reveals the true character of God in his love and grace. I would recommend this book to anyone, whether you're already walking in grace or skeptical of the whole "grace camp," or even if you're not Christian (as this book would derail most if not all myths that you thought was true about Christianity).

With all due respect to this author and what he's been through, his doctrine is serious flawed, not only concerning the grace of God but also with his perspective on the beliefs of others. It's no wonder that the author and many others are embracing the heavily flawed "hyper grace" position if they are being taught in the their churches what the author insists other's believe.

I found the author's view of grace to be very narrow and limited. The grace of God is more than God's willingness to forgive our sin. Authentic grace is a divine invitation to enter into God's presence on a daily basis where victory over sin and self is attained. Christ did not go to the cross for the forgiveness of sins only. Christ gave Himself for us in order to give Himself to us that He might live His life through us. Grace is not, nor ever was, God's willingness to ignore sin after salvation but rather, God's provision to overcome sin in our moment of weakness. (See Hebrews 4:14-16, 2 Peter 1:2-10, 1st Cor. 10:13, Galatians 5:16, 1 John 3: 7-10)

I believe that many embrace the "hyper grace" position because they have not been properly discipled concerning God's provision to overcome sin in this life, which is an abiding life which allows the Holy Spirit to manifest his divine nature in and through us. They don't seem to understand that sin grieves God because our sin is the result of our failure to turn to God in our moment of weakness, ignoring His provision for temptation and sin. They also seem to confuse Holy Spirit conviction, which draws us toward God through humility & repentance, with condemnation, our self righteous feelings of failure and shame which drives a wedge between us and God.
