Captured By Grace - Dr. David Jeremiah
Captured by Grace: No One is Beyond the Reach of a Loving God by Dr. David Jeremiah is a wonderful book that reminds us that God's grace is free to everyone - even when you are not searching for it. It is a book that would be a good read for new Christians as well as seasoned Christians.
Some people find it difficult to place their Faith in someone they don't yet know or can't see. However, God wants us to know him, He is there for us and we can "see" Him - just be reading our Bibles and learning everything about Him. I especially love the fact that Dr. Jeremiah uses my favorite song "Amazing Grace" to demonstrate the grace of God - what it is, where it is, how to find it, etc.
The book is divided into 3 sections - Grace in the past, present and in the future. He takes you through the Apostle Paul's life - and who can't relate to Paul. One of Jesus's most love disciples was once condemning Christianity but he found grace. He also uses John Newton's life - the author of "Amazing Grace" as another example.
To sum up this review - this book is very powerful and insightful. It is a wonderful reminder of what God's Grace is and even if you have been a Christian for years, it will increase your understanding about grace.
NOTE: I was provided this book for no charge by Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review. In no way am I obligated to provide a positive review of the book.
