Book Review - Wild Grace: What Happens When Grace Happens
Bestselling author Max Lucado explains that if teens let God’s grace change them, shape them, and strengthen them, their lives will never be the same.
Today’s teens are being shaped by the pressures and disappointments of the world. But Max Lucado encourages them to take a close look at what can shape their hearts and their futures from the inside out—God’s grace.
As Max explains, "God’s grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A whitewater, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you." Wild Grace gives teens an understanding of how grace can change their lives in powerful ways, even when those lives are messed up, off track, or in trouble. Each chapter describes another miracle that happens when we allow God’s grace to work on us and through us:
“Grace is God’s decision to change everything. Good-bye, earthly labels. Stupid. Unpopular. Ugly. Failure. No longer. You aren’t who they say you are. You are who He says you are. Spiritually alive. Connected to God. Amazing.”
Teens will be convinced that God knew what He was doing when He made them and His grace is always there, ready to work wonders that are bigger than anything this world has to offer.
My Take on the Book
This was another great book from Max Lucado that makes you truly delve deeper into your understanding about not only what God's Grace is, but also what is means to accept and apply this to our lives on a daily basis. The author uses some great down-to-earth practical examples that simply make sense, and I loved the interactive tone of the book itself. I have always found the concept of God's Grace to be a bit challenging and sometimes overwhelming. This book though does a great job at explaining and laying it out in a way that all can comprehend and appreciate. This is a book that I would highly recommend to any that have had similar challenges with grappling with this as it will definitely open your eyes.
