This book is well written and easy to read.

The purpose of Grace Awakening is clear: God's grace gives us the freedom to be ourselves and to not smother others so much that we get in God's way for their lives!
Michael Taylor
Grace is given to us, not because we deserve it but because of Christ Jesus' love for all of God's children.

The purpose of Grace Awakening is clear: God's grace gives us the freedom to be ourselves and to not smother others so much that we get in God's way for their lives!
Among the many excellent points Swindoll covers include:
1. Jesus focused on the heart instead of a list of requirements.
2. Strategies for resisting legalism.
3. Principles of disagreeing agreeably.
4. Working in the flesh is unacceptable to the Lord.
5. Characteristics of those who display grace to others.
6. Be careful of comparing yourself to others!
7. While other people may be impressed with us, God isn't!
8. Areas that can keep us from growing in grace.
An excellent and highly recommended book, allow God to work through you to extend grace to others!

This book had a profound impact on me. And, it should be read by anyone who was raised in legalism and is mad at God because of those who, "take their preferences, find a scripture to wrap around it and then call it a conviction we all must live by." Originally, this book was to be called, "The Grace Killers." (Which, I like better, because that's what they are.) This book exposes those who load their flocks down like pack-animals with legalism, watch them stagger under the load and when they're about to crumble beneath the weight, they add more rules. IT WAS FOR FREEDOM THAT CHRIST HAS SET US FREE. Gal. 5:1

As a pastor, I am compelled to read this work at least once a year. It reminds me that I often loose sight of God's grace. Without grace I am left with trying earn my salvation. Dr. Swindoll reminds me that I need to be a giver of grace to everyone that I meet.
If you are or have struggled with God's idea of grace, I would encourage you to read this work. It will remind you how wonderful God's love is. We cannot survive without His grace. Since we have been the recepent of God's grace, we need to be givers of Grace ourselves.

Format: Hardcover
Legalists will read this book and quickly misunderstand the author's perspective as being a license for libertine behavior. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. The grace of G-d shed abroad in our hearts is powerful enough to keep the believer in Christ, in holiness, without rules, regulations and the doctrines of man.
For me this book took the "fear" out of religon. Yes "the fear of the L-rd is the beginning of wisdom." But there is a "fear that hath torment," which is the fear produced by dictators who subject their congregations to a "yoke of bondage," using fear as a motivation for serving the L-rd.
Charles Swindoll has written a beautiful that is perfect for those who don't know what it is like to experience the "joy" of their "salvation."

Format: Hardcover
I'll keep this very short. I had never written to the author of a book before but felt compelled to do so after reading this book. More than ANY book I had ever read, this book made a real change in my attitude and outlook toward life and my concept of who and what God is.
I had gone to church most of my life and was very involved with all the busyness of church life and definitely knew I was a believer but during a time when I was questioning a lot of things this book fell into my hands.
I read it practically without putting it down and wrote to Charles Swindoll to thank him for giving me first real glimmer of spiritual hope I'd had for many many years.
I still have the book and keep my letter to Charles Swindoll and his reply to me inside it. I loan it to others from time to time when I see that same look of bewilderment on their faces that I felt in my heart after many years of trying so hard for I knew not what.
READ THIS BOOK! I promise you'll never be the same again. It's just impossible.

Yes. It's true! A good friend of my family gave us this book and by the time I went thru the first chapter, I was in tears and saw a light I had missed and nearly forgot in my yrs as a Christian and pastor (besides having gone thru a long wilderness). My current pastor's birthday came up and even tho I had not finished the second chapter, I decided to either buy one for him or give this one away! I gave it away as the bookstores had sold out! I do not know whether he has read it yet as his messages did not show it. Still, I am hoping... Wonderfully, our friend lent her copy to us and now I can continue reading. I have preached and taught grace and works and all that for so long I forgot what it really meant to ME! (It can happen!) So, altho I knew what Swindoll would basically be writing, his experience and authority as a seasoned man of God in our generation sealed the truth of grace into my heart like few others could. From that day, I have been having a wonderful time just LIVING for Him!!!! Praise the Lord!! Thank u Mr. Swindoll for teaching this truth with boldness and with all grace! May the Lord continue to see u thru till the end of time!!

This book brings out what many christians can't put their fingers on. It screams out and says how are you walking?? chained up or FREE? We are all to seek God and obey his commandments and this book does not take away from that. It just tells it like it is. It's all God and not US. That is where the focus should be. We as humans tend to take things to the extrem thus distorting and re-adusting what(we think). This book offers an insight to balaced christian living and points straight to God and his word. That in itself brings contentment to a christian being filled with guilt and burden. We can love God and be so happy and confident about who we are in Him. Sadly those who are convinced that they want to choose a rigid christian life will continue to have tunnel vision. They will not want to be set free, for them I will say, Only Christ died and only He and He alone can make you righteouse. I also pray for your awakening and if in humility to Christ you can read your bible without any preconcevied thoughts about what you've been taught or any of your own understanding, but that which lines up with Gods word (which is infoulable). Even when you think your OBEYING and LEADING a righteous life...guess what?? you still have SIN and God's GRACE is ever so graciously covering you...Why not enjoy it like he intended. This book is that simple. God does not have favorites as the bible says. So lets all grow up and accept our imperfection and live triumphant,righteous,happy christian lives that only comes from our Lord Jesus Christ. Only Satan would bring rigidness to a believers life. Let start living like Jesus died for us and rose up to give us LIFE in the true sence of the word(LIFE).
