It has been a real pleasure to read this book. Sinclair Ferguson is entirely right - there are so many Christians who do not appreciate how much God loves them. This book is for them - and also for the many who have not yet tasted God's grace.
It is a very simply written exposition of God's amazing grace. Its starting point is a hymn 'O how the grace of God amazes me' by the African Christian Emmanuel T. Sibomana. The themes of the hymn's different stanzas are the starting point for the different chapters. For example, chapter 3 picks up the third stanza's theme -the cost of the Christian's salvation.
I have found it all so helpful - good theology and Bible exposition simply and clearly written and illustrated. It helped me in terms of thinking about difficulties in the Christian life (yes, God really does love His child - and the problems really come from God's enemy, the devil) and it will undoubtedly fit into any preaching or speaking on God's grace I do.
A book to be read - and given or loaned to others who want and need to understand God's grace.
