Book Review: Grace is Greater: God’s plan to overcome your past, redeem your pain, and rewrite your story, by Kyle Idleman
Pastor and author Kyle Idleman has penned another insightful and helpful book, this time offering insight and perspective on the grace of God. Rather than being a theological treatise, his book is aimed at helping his readers see and experience grace as if for the first time. As with his previous books, he digs into the subject by combining Scriptural teaching with his own story and the story of others.
The book is divided into three parts. Part 1 is about the fact that grace is greater than our mistakes—our guilt, brokenness, and regrets. Part 2 explores the idea that grace is greater than our hurts—our wounds, bitterness, desire for vengeance, and resentment. Part 3 wraps up the discussion by stressing that grace is greater than our circumstances—our disappointments, weakness, and despair.
The book will help the reader to grasp the truth of God’s amazing grace. It is a truth that is best understood when you experience it.
