In his latest book Christian author extraordinaire Max Lucado attempts to cover the complicated meaning of the word ‘Grace.’ As Lucado points out most of the general population will say that they understand the concept of grace, but do people really get what Grace means? We know what a graceful dancer looks like and what a grace period is, but do we understand just how amazing heavenly Grace is?
Grace is written in a similar style as Lucado’s other bestselling works; small easy to manage chapters. Each chapter introduces a new concept and is illustrated with relevant scripture, commentary, and an easy-to-understand anecdote. While, personally, I found some of the chapters to be a bit dry and tedious I really like the way Max Lucado chooses to write about his chosen subject. His tone is always conversational and friendly; never ‘preachy’ or judgmental. The short chapters make all the difference. Each chapter was easy to read and understand, and the personal anecdotes were novel and engrossing.
Overall, I would rate this work as 3.5 out of 5 stars. The concept of grace is a heavy, difficult one to expound on, but Max Lucado did a great job. It was a little bit slow and boring at points, but I would absolutely recommend this book.
