Grace.

We talk as though we understand the term. The bank gives us a "grace" period. The seedy politician falls from "grace." Musicians speak of a "grace" note. We describe an actress as "gracious," a dancer as "graceful." We use the word for hospitals, baby girls, kings, and premeal prayers. We talk as though we know what "grace" means.

But do we really understand it? Have we settled for wimpy grace? It politely occupies a phrase in a hymn, fits nicely on a church sign. Never causes trouble or demands a response. When asked, "Do you believe in grace?" who could say no?

Max Lucado asks a deeper question: Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace?

God's grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you. From insecure to God secure. From regret riddled to better-because-of-it. From afraid to die to ready to fly.

Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off.

Let's make certain grace gets you.


Endorsements for GRACE:

"God's grace--His unconditionally loving, unmerited favor--is sometimes difficult for people to grasp, even though each one of us is in desperate need of it. But in Max Lucado's new book, "GRACE," it is completely embraceable and understandable. Through Lucado's characteristic narrative style and profound biblical understanding, we learn that God's grace is truly much more than we deserve and greater than we imagine. " --Dr. Charles F. Stanley

"Max Lucado has blended his creative writing style with honesty about how he has experienced God's grace, mercy and forgiveness in his own times of failure and despair. You will find comfort as Max shines the light of the Word of God revealing that Jesus Christ is truly the only hope that brings everlasting peace." --Franklin Graham, President and CEO, Samaritan's Purse, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association

"Reading Max Lucado on grace is like hearing Warren Buffett on money or Julia Child on food--it's a subject he spent a lifetime falling in love with." --John Ortberg, pastor and author, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church

"Few writers are better than Max Lucado, no subject is better than God's grace." --Randy Alcorn, author of "Heaven" and "If God is Good"

"Max gives us encouragement, hope and a needed reminder that the grace we all possess as followers of Jesus should empower us to move mountains, vs simply settling for pushing wimpy molehills." --Brad Lomenick, President and Executive Director, Catalyst

"Max offers up a biblical vision of God's grace that comes drenched in sweat and with a set of six-pack abs; a life-defining newness and relationship-refining kindness straight from the heart of God." --Tim Kimmel, author of "Grace Based Parenting"

"Some writers aim for the mind, others for the heart and a small number for the soul. With his latest book, 'Grace, ' Max Lucado hits the trifecta, touching on all three." -- Cal Thomas, Syndicated and "USA Today" Columnist and Fox News Contributor

"If you love the writings of Max Lucado, this will probably become your favorite." -- Stephen Arterburn, Founder and Chairman of New Life Ministries, host of "New Life Live " and best selling author

"I can think of no more needed message for weary people everywhere, and no better writer than Max Lucado to paint so gloriously the hope that "Christ in you" affords." --Louie Giglio, creator of Passion Conferences and pastor, Passion City Church

We describe an actress as gracious, a dancer as graceful. We use the wordfor hospitals, baby girls, kings, and premeal prayers. We talk as though weknow what grace means.

But do wereally understand it? Have we settled for wimpy grace? It politely occupies aphrase in a hymn, fits nicely on a church sign. Never causes trouble or demandsa response. When asked, “Do you believe in grace?” who could say no?

Max Lucadoasks a deeper question: Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by thenape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace?
