Grace Awakening helped me understand Christ's life in me.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Grace Awakening: Believing in Grace is One Thing Living is Another (Paperback)
Until the moment I invited Christ into my life, I didn't want to be a Christian. Since then (May 1998) I've eagerly sought to know more of Him. This book has opened up the Scriptures to me in a very special way. It has helped me to understand more of God's forgiveness and how to apply His forgiveness through me to other people - to live His Grace, not just to believe in it.
Many of the Scriptures have depths to them that are not apparent to the spiritually immature. Other Scriptures have historical backgrounds, and cultural meanings which the un-studied Bible student may not understand. Charles Swindoll does an excellent job of explaining these, relating them to present-day situations, and most importantly of all, to real people. He draws deeply on his own experiences, lessons and friends in order to present God's love for our failings, and how we can have that same love for others.
