Item description for In the Grip of Grace: You Can't Fall Beyond His Love (Walker Large Print Books) by Max Lucado...
Overview This bestselling author proclaims the grace of God to be "the greatest discovery of my life," and he wants to share that discovery by taking readers on a journey through the mountaintop truths found in Paul's letter to the Romans.
Publishers Description Can anything separate us from God's love? Does He really love us, no matter what?
How does He feel about me when I snap at anything that moves? When I've failed as a parent? When my thoughts are gutter-level? When my tongue is sharp? Have I drifted too far? Waited too long? Slipped too much? The answer is found in one of life's sweetest words-"grace."
It is God who lovingly holds us in the eternal grip of His grace. Our good deeds won't help. Perfect performance is "not" required. The God who made us has redeemed us and covered our sinfulness with His righteousness. His holiness is "sufficient" for all our sin. And that's grace.
Best-selling author Max Lucado proclaims the grace of God to be "the greatest discovery of my life." And he wants to share that discovery by taking us on a journey through the mountaintop truths found in Paul's letter to the Romans. "Romans is the grandest treatise on grace ever written. You'll find the air fresh and the view clear."

Reviews - What do customers think about In the Grip of Grace: You Can't Fall Beyond His Love (Walker Large Print Books)?
Love the paradigm Sep 29, 2007
His opening paradigm (chapter 1) is remarkable. I remember it, even years later! And how he builds on that is excellent. One of his best.
Best Lucado Aug 9, 2006
Like some other Christian authors, Lucado has such a large library of books that deciding on one can be daunting for a new comer. So, if you've never read anything by Lucado before, I recommend you start right here. "In the Grip of Grace" is by far my favorite work by Max. Enjoy!

Fault finding bridge builder Jul 4, 2006
My review is not meant to be a beautiful write up for Max, I am sure he is a great guy, but hey, even his insurance company has problems with him. (I must be a the judgemental type) This book helped me realize that no matter how hard I try or how hard I think I am trying its not good enough. I cant jump to the moon, I cant make it up the river alone, and I cant place a value of a sin and try to "repay it with good". I am helpless. The book made me feel uncompfortable and small, but compared to God I think thats exactly how we have to feel to even accept his grace let alone understand it.
I reccomend this book to anyone who is desperate enough to listen. Dont read this for entertainment, Max is funny, but not that funny. Read it if you want to change. I know I did.
Thanks Max, for allowing God to use you as His megaphone.
Changed my life... Sep 27, 2004
I have been a church goer my whole life and just went with the flow, never really in touch with God...until I read this book. I read it, and it turned me right around. This book will make you embrace the grace of an awesome God. If your life is off track this book will show you what is being offered to you, and if you've already accepted your forgiveness, this book will make you smile when you think of what an awesome God you serve. I love this book because it shows me how much God truly loves me and it sparked me into reading my bible daily and leading a different life. I love the joy that this book portrays that we Christians need to remember and embrace daily.
Helped me in many ways... Jul 30, 2004
I was drifting from the church. I had (and continue to have) a different perspective on the church from certain issues. I was taking a "don't ask, don't tell" approach to homosexuality, basically saying, what they want to do is between them and God, and it's not the role of man to place judgment on them for that. And certainly not the role of man (or church) to LEGISLATE morality. But, before I get someone ripping my head off for that opinion, you can imagine that it isn't popular in the church.
When I read this book, I saw so many people in the Church in the role of the second brother in the parable of the river. The Fault-Finding Judgmentalist. And at that point I was instantly hooked into this book. I felt like this was someone who saw things from my perspective, whether he agreed with me or not. He could at least see what I was thinking, of this much I was assured. He doesn't mention any of those controversial topics explicitly, but I feel like the interpretation is valid.
Simply put, I came away feeling a greater love and appreciation for God, and feeling thankful for His grace that has saved me. I'm still more far from the Church than I would prefer. It will take awhile for me to find my way completely back. But guided by my re-growing faith, and books like this, I won't be gone forever.
