About the Author
Jep Robertson is the youngest son of Phil and Kay Robertson. Jep grew up in the duck blind and utilizes these years of experience in his role as cameraman and editor for the family business. Jep is able to think like a hunter behind the camera and, therefore, captured excellent footage for the Duckmen DVD series. Previously, he also videoed footage for the Benelli Presents Duck Commander TV show.
Jep continues with the goal his father began years ago, to bring the “Duckmen style” of hunting out of the swamps, into the editing room, and into the homes of duck hunting enthusiasts around the world. Making his film debut in Duckmen X stoked Jep’s passion for capturing his family’s hunts on camera. That title remains his favorite Duckmen DVD to date. Jep and his family also star in A&E’s hit series, Duck Dynasty.
Jessica Robertson and Jep have been married for more than fourteen years. As Jep’s wife, Jessica fits right in with the family. As a child she grew up hunting on the weekends with her father in the woods of Louisiana. She and Jep met in 2001, and they were married within two weeks of announcing their engagement. Jessica also has a business background, as do many in the Robertson family, but not from working at Duck Commander. She previously worked in real estate as a licensed real estate agent and most recently worked in sales.
Jep and Jessica live in West Monroe, Louisiana with their four children: Lily, Merritt, Priscilla, and River.
Susy Flory is the author or coauthor of eight books, including the New York Times bestseller Thunder Dog. She lives in California and is the director of the West Coast Christian Writers Conference.

There is something that everyone can find to relate to in this book -- whether it's feeling insecure, keeping secrets, questions about God and Faith, addictions or divorce. And because Jep and Jess are so honest in telling their stories you begin to feel a kinship with them.
This book gives insight into the personal triumphs and struggles of Jep and Jessica throughout their lives. Funny stories about sibling relationships or hunting trips are interspersed with stories about the strong bonds of family and painful stories of love and betrayal.
So many people struggle with the idea that they are beyond God's love. Jep and Jessica talk about their insecurities and their realization that God loves us as we are -- even with all our secrets and sins.
Jep says in the book: "As I looked at God's Word with fresh eyes, I realized that repenting and turning to God meant I was saved and forgiven. Jesus' blood covered my sins and redeemed me from the path of destruction I was on. I couldn't have ever been good enough on my own."
No one is good enough on their own merit which is why we need a Saviour. Jep and Jess highlight how important it is to have your own faith and to recognize it isn't our works that save us -- it is Jesus' death and resurrection that provides redemption for us.

When The Good, the Bad, and the Grace of God by the youngest Robertson son Jep and his wife Jessica, came available for review, I snapped it up. It was a quick, interesting read. It gave me some good insights into the Robertson family, and I have gained respect for this clan and their fierce loyalty to each other. As I began this book, I thought it might be very simplistic and 'surfacey' and I thought I'd have a difficult time empathizing with what I thought of as wealthy reality TV stars and their first world problems, but it really was a transparent and honest read, which included sharing some very difficult experiences. The Robertson's strong faith in the grace of God and the power of forgiveness shines through. This family is not a religious family as much as one which truly loves God and people and shows it by their actions.
It's worth the few hours it took to read this book. And you may become a Duck Dynasty fan after reading! I hear there's a new season starting!
