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'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.
i would recommend this to any one of any age.
New believers, bible study groups, preachers, teachers, anyone interested in the true gospel!
Get it and feast! :)
i really wish i had a paper or hard back version so i could loan it out to everyone i know! :)
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.Read more ›
