It's that time again....time for another Tyndale Blog Network book review.
And this time I chose the book "Courageous Grace" by Gayle Haggard.
This book was an easy read, full of stories and scriptures. At first, I thought it would be more of a study kind of book, and while there are study questions in the back, I found it to be more encouraging than anything else. Here are a few quotations that I especially liked...
"God is not shocked by our sin..."
"Forgiveness means we let go of our right to punish others for their wrongs against us."
"Forgiveness acts as a healing balm that soothes the heart of the forgiver."
Now, this book is not really about our walk, but about how we respond to others that have tripped and fallen in their walk with God. I've always wondered why the army of God shoots their own wounded. Ultimately it is up to each of us individually to extend the grace that Jesus showed us, to others.
I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
