Pure Gold May 1, 2009
Perfect for : Personal reading, Bible Study Group
In a nutshell: This is a nicely thought-provoking book - at least it was for me. Pam has done a wonderful job within this book of explaining what God's grace is and why it is important, even going so far as to equate it to the importance of real gold in the marketplace, which ends up being a very good example, something that most people should be able to relate to in some way. She explains that it takes time and effort to pan for God's "gold" or grace. She has done a wonderful job of supporting her points with scripture from the Bible. She has also included some powerful stories to help illustrate the points she is trying to make. This book is a good tool for an individual as well as a bible study group or Christian studies class.
My Review: This is a good, thought-provoking book designed to encourage readers to become more influenced by God's grace in their lives.
Content: There is a lot of information in this book. Pam has included plenty of real-life examples and backed up each point with scriptures from the bible.
Format: The chapters were nicely organized, and each had a "Nugget" of information, a prayer of grace and questions for reflection.
Readability: There is a lot of good information within the book. I found some of it easier to understand than others, and found that I sometimes needed to put the book down in order to think about what I had read.
Overall: This is a good book for people in all stages of their faith. I believe that different people will receive different benefits from reading this book, and that they can later re-read the book and glean additional information from it.

Spiritual and devout, "Pure Gold" will inspire faith in its readers, making it a must for any Christian who's down and out in life.
Timeless devotional about the priceless gift of grace Nov 20, 2008
Pure Gold by Pam Davis is an intriguing devotional comparing the qualities of gold to God's grace. Davis is passionate about the power of God's grace, so she compares it to one of mankind's greatest desires: gold. Gold has built and destroyed civilizations and has some amazing qualities. Davis uses these to bring the reader to a deeper understanding of God's amazing grace. She uses anecdotes like when gold is melted, the metalworker knows that it is pure when he can see his own reflection in it, much like when we are acting in accordance to God's will, His reflection can be seen in us. Each chapter ends with a prayer and questions to encourage deeper thought. Davis has some powerful personal stories to tell in her own quest for grace, but sometimes there seems to be an emotional disconnect in the writing, and I occasionally had a hard time connecting with the book. For the most part, this is a fascinating look into the value of grace and the miracle that God has given such a priceless gift to us.
