Timely and encouraging words to initiate a fresh experience of God’s grace.
By following the dramatic story of John Newton, the Amazing Grace hymn writer, and the apostle Paul’s own encounter with the God of grace, pastor and teacher Dr. David Jeremiah helps readers understand the freeing power of permanent forgiveness and mercy.
Dramatic stories and biblical insights highlight the very personal effects of grace and how grace:
* wondrously spans all our differences * rescues us from our lostness * helps us overcome our weaknesses, * takes us from victims to victors
Two names that are practically synonymous with “grace” are John Newton (penned the song Amazing Grace) and Paul (formerly known as Saul from the Bible). It is these two personalities that author David Jeremiah takes a closer look at bringing them to life to the reader to learn from their own mistakes and fortunes. This book is about spiritual guidance and while it cannot be absorbed all in one sitting it will definitely get in your heart and help you learn for the good of your soul.
