The Truth About Grace

Brian's picture

The Truth About Grace book coverThe Truth About Grace by John MacArthur is one book in The Truth About series. In these books John teaches about core aspects of Christian faith.

Grace is an often misunderstood topic among Christians. I hear the phrase “By the Grace of God” thrown about by people during the retelling of everyday mishaps. They use the phrase in the same way someone may say “As luck would have it, I’m still alive.”

Hearing others using grace in such a casual way, I have always wondered what is grace. In The Truth About Grace, John MacArthur clarifies what grace is and what it is not.  Grace is one of those words I would expect to open a dictionary and see the word defined with itself. Grace is grace.  The simple definition is John uses is “unmerited favor.” Grace is much more than that.

After reading the book I still feel unqualified to define what grace is. Not because John did a bad job explaining grace.  This book is full of information, examples and biblical references. I feel unqualified to define grace because I still have a long way to go in my faith. There is a God who loves me. I didn’t do anything to deserve it.  I don’t have to do anything for Gods grace to continue.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about what grace is. It is a quick easy read. This book would also be great for a small group study.
