Side note: While neither of my degrees are in english, I do like to think of myself as well versed in literature. I think the book was very well written - its organized in a thought process, which is more geared towards how the human brain works. It is a relational text where instead of reading about a woman crying on the floor, you want to reach through the page and tell her she will be okay. It's a powerful style, it is Serena Woods' style. Perhaps the Eternal Optimist was looking for the queen's english?
Grace for Sinners is autobiographical, but it also raises existential questions that apply to all people. If, as scripture says, the law is written on all men's hearts, then the Ten Commandments have a universal appeal and application. Humanity naturally tends to condemn adultery because its existence undermines the foundation of society, the family. Still, adultery occurs with some frequency despite this universal or near-universal recognition that it is wrong. Woods knows, painfully, that right and wrong are easier to identify than to live up to. Humanity's lot is imperfection, but Woods rightfully points out that God's gift is forgiveness.Read more ›
The books message is simple: as believers in Christ we cannot afford to throw one another out with the bath water. We need to live a life of forgiveness and love. Serena's story is heart-wrenching and encouraging at the same time. I applaud her for sharing her story. I've followed her blog for quite some time and it is just excellent. Other than that, I would recommend this book, but keep an open mind as it is hard to follow, in some chapters.
