There are two fundamentally different approaches to living life in relation to God. The first approach is to jump up and down, trying to impress Him. The second is to relate to Him on the basis of grace. Though the first approach makes sense at first glance (since it is the way we get noticed), it comes with a whole load of baggage: guilt, shame, fear, pride. The way of gr ...more

Christians know we are saved by grace but living by grace may be hard. There are so many issues that get in our way. Miller has written this devotional to help us work through those issues to be a grace filled person. This would make a good devotional for Lent or Advent. See my full review at http://bit.ly/GQTfL4.

In 40 Days of Grace, Rich Miller explored the fundamental concept of grace given by a loving Creator. Rich Miller described that when Jesus died on the cross for our sins and we repented and asked for forgiveness. This very act of sacrifice lead to grace being introduced into the world. The book is written in the form of a 40 day devotional and divided into six weeks. The weekly topics include “Amazing Grace”, “Canceling the Guilt Trip”, “From Disgrace to Grace”, “From Fear to Faith”, “The Power

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Passages such as Ephesians 2:8-9 make it quite clear how important the topic of grace is in our lives. There is no work sinful man can accomplish that can achieve them salvation. Only by the grace of God can we experience reconciliation to a holy God. Author Rich Miller in his book 40 Days of Grace: Discovering God’s Liberating Love, takes

Many of us have grown up with a distorted image of God. We’ve grown up believing we have to earn God’s favor to get to heaven. We believe that the way to God’s heart is to earn His love. We strive to be “good enough”.

In 40 Days Of Grace – Discovering God’s Liberating Love, Rich Miller shows us there is a better way.

Grace. Some of us say grace at mealtime… some of sing about Amazing Grace… some of us even know one or two people named Grace… but how many of us truly understand the biblical concep

From the Publisher:

Rich Miller has spent his ministry trying to help people accept,and then keep accepting, God’s perfect grace. As president of Freedom in Christ Ministries he helped develop the Grace Course which teaches this concept. In 40 Days of Grace, he has gathered his lifetime of reflections into devotional readings that thoroughly explore what it means to live a grace-filled life.

I found this devotional to be highly well written, enlightening, profound and at times humorous. Miller uses stories to help us grasps the meaning of grace in our everyday lives that are real. He helps us to identify many of theses situations, therefore making us capable of understanding better grace in our own lives.

If you read this book expecting an in-depth verse by verse expository on all the Bible has to say about grace, you will be deeply disappointed. On the other hand if you are looking

I began this book on the day it arrived in the mail. The whole discussion of Grace struck me where I live. Rich says, "Graceless living like breathing carbon monoxide. You may not even realize it is killing you spiritually until it is too late."

I once knew a church going woman who was in church every week and her husband played the Organ for the church. I often said, "She has Grace, but it is Cold Grace and not Warm Grace." Cold Grace is what Rich speaks about when he says that some people jump

This is not your father’s devotional! This volume by Rich Miller and published by Monarch Books takes you on a 40 day journey of grace.

Enter this volume as a real impetus to do so.

His design is well thought out as grace is ever his theme while each week he takes an aspect like dealing with misplaced guilt,

This book grabbed my attention, as I have struggled all my life with the issue of grace, feeling like I could never measure up to deserving it, which is ironic since that is what grace is all about - undeserved.


This book is basically a 40-day devotional about God's grace. The full title is 40 Days of Grace, Discovering God's Liberating Love. All forty selections are about God's grace. They run five-six pages in length, and after the devotional part, end with these: A thought to chew on, a trut

The funny thing about this book was that I often felt like I wasn't getting anything out of it but then as I would talk to my Bible study group I would remember something I read that totally applied and share it with them.

This book is full of nuggets of wisdom. Little things you will grasp and not want to let go of.

I discovered, through this book. that I really don't have a very good understanding of grace and I still feel unworthy of what I do understand.

In 40 Days of Grace, through parables and provoking questions, principles and proverbs, Rich Miller brings the amazing, nearly unbelievable Grace of God down to a common-sense, day-by-day level. Taking higher-ground truths and placing them in laymen's terms with basic application, showing every Christian how to forgive others and themselves, change their view of how God views them and allow Grace to flow through every area of your life.
The end result?
Complete transformation.

This is a Christian book, focused on the influence/impact God can have in one's life. I did not find it very different from most of the books of this genre.
There are many interesting short stories that the author used to make his point. Above all, one must have faith in Christ to gain from this book.
I received a free review copy of this book from Goodreads.
