I loved the writing style that Andy Stanley used in this book. It was very fun to read and kept my attention. Most everyone leans either to the side of truth or grace in their beliefs, I am a truth girl and was very touched by this book. I will most certainly recommend it to others (with a small caution that while every story is from the Bible, not everything said is a biblical fact).
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com
Target Audience: Anyone!
Positive Elements: This book does a fabulous job describing God’s grace and doing so in a way that you can relate to.
Inappropriate Language: None
Unbiblical Content: Because he was so intent on making the Scriptures something that we were able to understand Andy Stanley added some details to the Bible stories that he shared that aren’t in the original writings. If you read this book, just remember that he wants it to be something you can picture, but not everything is fact.
Other Negative Elements: This book was endorsed by Joyce Myer. Because of that, I would have never bought this book at a book store. However, Andy Stanley did not portrait her beliefs of Jesus going to hell, and did mention that when He died on the cross and said that it was finished, that was what He meant.
**I also want to add that I did disagree with a few things that he said, if you would like details, just let me know. I don’t want to include them and give too much of the book away.
