really liked it
Read in February, 2012

So this book produced mixed reactions in me. I ended up really liking the author's idea and approach to grace (to unconditional forgiveness). I also appreciated his opinion that if "the church" offered people love and grace, the church would be far more popular and thereby have a greater positive impact on people and the world. At first, and at least to the midway of the book, I was put off by his evangelical Christian background - for the same reason I am put off by all organized religions - they are exclusionary. Some are "saved" and some are not. But his message really dug through that and could be seen to be all encompassing. Grace is not earned (for examply, by following all the rules of the church), grace is offered. He explains it nicely and illustrates it with stories. As a person searching for faith (but not religion) this was a good read.
