5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, thought-provoking, must buy!, 23 Jan 2002
Yancey takes the concept of God's grace and 'earths it'. What does it mean to us...undeserved merit, and how do we 'reflect' it? This book is awesome, challenging, rivoting, and will change the way you think about things. If you're looking for one book - apart from the Bible - this is it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for folk living in the real world, 12 Dec 2000
This review is from: Second Choice (Paperback)
Viv Thomas, using the Old Testament account of Daniel who lived in exile, shows, reassuringly, that in this twenty-first century world where things go wrong, the unexpected happens and sickness and upset just rear their head when you least expect it, that God is in overall control.
Through prayer he says we can see the 'wider picture' and far from second-choices being 'ogres', we can work with them because God works around them - they may not be eliminated, but our perspective changes when we see second-choices and problems etc silhouetted and reduced in size against God's awesome, over-ruling power.
The book is very readable, full of real life stories of contemporary folk and their challenges, and gives a glimpse of Viv's heart attack and how his perpective changed.
Having just read the book, I'm about to start back at the beginning again! If you want to see what God is doing in your life, and can do if you allow the book! Best book Ive read in years.
