“The Grace of God” by Andy Stanley

The Grace of God was an amazing book! Andy Stanley did a wonderful job fleshing out the grace of God as he takes his readers on a journey through the Bible. Starting in Genesis and working his way through to present day, Andy Stanley portrayed God’s grace in its purest since.

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).

I review for BookSneeze
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”


Worldview: Biblical

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.
