Book Review: Captured By Grace

"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound"... always will be a special song to me, it was the one my grandmother would ask me to sing when I was little (so I've been told over the years) and after she passed away it remained a special song to my family. David Jeremiah uses the lines from this beloved hymn to share God's Grace with readers. 

This book is a practical "guide" to learning to live in God's grace and is backed with scripture throughout.  Through the example of Paul, we are reminded of how much He loves us, how his grace captures us and brings us to the truth in a way we cannot ignore...nor will we ever want to.  None of us are beyond God' reach when He wants us as His.  He also compares Paul to John Newton, the man who penned Amazing Grace, this was an interesting comparison for me.

I enjoyed reading this book, I thought it was well written, although to be honest I did have a hard time getting into the first few chapters.  I think it just didn't "grab" my attention right off but after getting in a few chapters, I saw exactly where he was going and what God wanted me to learn from this book.
