Product Description

From the Publisher

This book will touch everyone at the core of their soul.
Philip says it best when he describes "grace" as the one unique word that distinguishes authentic Christianity throughout the ages. It's what I need every day; it's likely what you desire every day. Philip's book will prod us all to receive grace and dispense it. The results will surprise and delight us. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

In 1998, What's So Amazing About Grace? was chosen as the Gold Medallion Book of the Year. Stamped with Philip Yancey's journalistic gift for inquiry and personal passion for truth, this provocative best-seller has challenged and inspired thousands of readers with a vision of the radical grace that is the church's great distinctive. Now What's So Amazing About Grace? comes to you in complete, unabridged audio format. Everything is here. All the penetrating insights. All the challenging, deeply personal perspectives. You'll find them inside, with the immediacy and convenience of audio cassette. We speak of grace often, but do we understand it? More important, do we truly believe in it . . . and do our lives proclaim it as powerfully as our words? In What's So Amazing About Grace? the best-selling author of The Jesus I Never Knew gives us a probing and impassioned look at grace: what it looks like . . . what it doesn't look like . . . and why only Christians can and must reveal the grace the world is searching for. --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.

"The biggest disease today is not leprosy or cancer. It's the feeling of being uncared for or unwanted, of being deserted and alone". ( Mother Theresa). This is exactly what author Phillip Yancey knows only too well, and thus addresses the issue head on. Throughout the book, he paints a picture of 'Grace on Tap' for those who feel guilty, lonely, forsaken, useless and failures. At the very centre of this art piece stands a God who does the illogical for those who have never experienced such love, and there is a clear challenge for those who claim to be followers of this God, to join Him in this cause.
This is an honest look at life, at our religious institutions, our relationships and our prejudices. It is a book that has brought hope to thousands that there is a cure for this great 'disease'. Read the stories, feel the heart ache, sense the love, and be inspired!

As my review title suggests I had this book sitting on my shelf for ages. I had heard people rave about it, but that really put me of reading it because so often I am dissapointed by the quality and content of books that become "popular" amongst christians. I tend to find ( feel free to disagree ) that what appeals is the lowest common denominator.
However this is different.
Yancy tackles the issue of how we are to respond to others in the light of the way that God responds to us in a way which is both theologically deep and totally practical, encouraging us to see others through the eyes of a God who has forgiven us without demand.
It is a great book, and I challenge anyone to read it and not be changed in the way they think of being gracious towards others in the light of how God has been gracious towards them.
Enjoy

Philip Yancey corrects and sheds vital light on perhaps the single most misunderstood Christain doctrine, that of grace. Using an array of captivating real life stories and demonstrating a vast knowledge of culture, history, literature and human nature, Yancey demonstrates, through God's word, how both our greatest need and God's greatest gift, is grace. He poignantly defines 'grace' in the following way, 'there is nothing we can do to make God love us more. There is nothing we can do to make God love us less.' Such is the true nature of grace, grace which does not calculate on the basis of merit or profit but is freely, generously and above all, unconditionally given. He demonstrates how throughout the ages, men and women, through many and various ways cries, have expressed an unquenchable longing for this grace.
He also calls Christians to immitate their Father, to work hand in hand with him to bring grace to a graceless planet, to walk in the footsteps of Christ. His words are moving, profound, original and deeply relevant.

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!

How can I add anything to all the rave reviews of this book? Why does everyone love it so much? Two reasons: the fact of God's grace and the fact that Yancey conveys that grace in a well-written book that is moving and touching. Yancey -- praise the Lord! -- is one conservative Christian who understands that Christianity is about God's love and forgiveness and not about a wrathful, rule-enforcing God who forgives grudgingly. And Yancey has a way of conveying this message with art and feeling. I have already bought multiple copies of this book to give to friends. I consider it a must-read for anyone looking for God's love.

I just finished "What's so Amazing about Grace?" last night. I've contacted three people so far to suggest this book. As I've heard one minister say, "This may be the best book of the decade, if not the best in the last 50 years." For so long, as a christian, I have struggled with these issues of how little the "christian" community (including myself at times) as a whole demonstrates the Good News. I've have also struggled with calling myself "christian" for what it implies to so many people-- due to much of the "ungrace" demonstrated by many christians and churches. This book tells me I'm not crazing. EVERY christian should read this book, EVERY, especially those involved in church leadership! I believe Phillip Yancey challenges the "church", much like Jesus Christ challenged the people of his time to love, and love boldly. It's refreshing to know that people who may have been wounded by the church, just may be healed after reading this book-- quite possibly that may be everyone in some capacity. Upon finishing the book and wiping the tears from my eyes, all I could think was, "RIGHT ON! RIGHT ON,RIGHT ON! OUTSTANDING!!!"

The word "grace" is used and missused most of time without a proper undestanding. Churches preach about it, believers us it, referring to God, but most of the time the proper and shocking understanding of the GRACE will be missing. Reading this book you will find yourself re-evaluating your understanding about God, you will find your faith measured, but most of all, you will feel that God's grace is really a precious gift for you and for the whole world.
God bless you and enrich your life through this wonderfully unusual book.
