From the Back Cover
"By the end of this book you will see grace in a new light; you will see your loving God in a new light. Read it and be encouraged."--Max Lucado, author of GRACE and In the Grip of Grace
No sin is so great, no bitterness so deep that God's grace cannot transform the heart and rewrite the story. But grace is so hard for us to understand.
It doesn't make sense.
It's not fair.
It can't possibly cover over what I've done.
Perhaps nothing is as difficult to explain as God's grace. The best way--perhaps the only real way--to understand it is to experience it.
In Grace Is Greater, bestselling author and pastor Kyle Idleman leads us past our hang-ups toward an understanding of grace that is bigger than our mistakes, our failures, our desire for revenge, and our seemingly impossible situations. Through powerful stories of grace experienced, this book will help you truly grasp God's grace . . . even if the Christians around you have failed to live it.
"Grace is my favorite topic, and Kyle Idleman's new book breathes fresh life into it through engaging stories and winsome insights. Nothing is greater than grace. Celebrate it, live it, share it!"--Lee Strobel, award-winning author of The Case for Grace

This book did not disappoint, in the least.
Kyle Idleman has such a way of putting Biblical principals into relatable terms. You'll laugh at some of the personal stories (especially if you read the footnotes!!) & then you feel like you've been gut-punched with the truth that the Bible has that you tend to put aside. He's just so good at making God's words & promise easy to understand. Opens your eyes to noticing it more in your own life.
This book is broken up in how Grace works in a life - For you, for you to give to others (did I mention that gut-punch thing?) & how Grace is in all your circumstances.
As someone who goes to Kyle's church, I will say, I have heard many of the things he mentioned in this book in sermons. That's not a negative to me - it just reminded me of the great messages I've heard before & now glad to have some of the points written on paper to refer to more often & not have to rely on my ever forgetting memory. & I'm even more glad that the amazing messages that I get to hear every week is getting shared a bit with the rest of the world.
I honestly can't recommend this book enough if you struggle with wondering if God has enough mercy & grace for you in your mistakes you've made... or if you are having trouble forgiving others. You will close this book with an encouraged heart.
The last few years I have really been drawn to delving into God's amazing grace, trying to wrap my mind around this blessing that is beyond words. I love Kyle Idleman's books, his biblical grounding and winsom, conversational style of writing. He writes with humor and memorable stories. He shares truths from God's Word. I knew I wanted to read his book about God's grace.
This book has been an amazing blessing to read and digest. He lays the groundwork facts such as, until I know how sinful I am and how big my need truly is, I cannot fully comprehend and appreciate God's grace. He ends with the fact that, life is hard and we experience a lot of heartache that can knock the breath out of us and can leave us confused and not understanding how God is at work in these circumstances, but the fact is that God is good and He is in control. His grace is greater than us, our past, and whatever we are facing. One day, as we stand with Him in eternity, we will see clearly. For now we cling to Him and He carries us. Kyle shares biblically sound truths throughout this book in a way that is down to earth, conversational, and with Scripture connections and great stories/experiences that etch them in your memory.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book and want to use it as a read aloud for our family.
This book reveals grace in a way I've never thought about before and has helped me to realize that His grace IS greater than the bitterness and hurt I have been carrying around. "God's grace is compelling when explained but irresistible when experienced".
Thank you Kyle Idleman for another great book!
