Review - The Truth About Grace by John MacArthur

The Truth About Grace is one installment in a series from John MacArthur covering the topics of forgiveness, the lordship of Christ and grace; important topics to say the least. They are taken from teachings he has done over the years and packaged into small books that one can digest quickly and come away with a deeper understanding of that particular topic.

In just five short chapters the readers has grace defined, shown how we receive grace and how it is misunderstood and twisted. John also explains how grace is realized and how we are to live it out.

As with all of John’s books and teachings he explains the topic with Scripture and counters differing views, all with clearness, detail and love. No one can read this book and come away with any questions.

I am always encouraged after I read John’s books and this is no exception. With a clearer understanding of God’s grace I am drawn to worship God more than ever. God is so very good to me even though I don’t deserve it. He works constantly in my life, empowering me to do His work. That is how John defines grace in this book: “the free and benevolent influence of a holy God operating sovereignly in the lives of undeserving sinners.”

If you are looking to find teaching to help learn about or gain a deeper understanding of grace this is the book for you.

You can purchace it at Christianbook or Amazon.
