it was amazing

I had the pleasure of interviewing Lisa Harper on our radio show “Kingdom Highlights”, about her new book, "Stumbling Into Grace" published by Thomas Nelson.

The best way to describe what "Stumbling Into Grace" is to do what Ms. Harper does in her introduction. She focuses on God. Some of us actually believe that God is too busy to be bothered with us especially in our little things. And if we mess up not only is God upset but His punishment is severe. Ms. Harper states that this belief system is totally inaccurate and not only that God knows that we are going to continually mess up but He has provided a way for us and that way is His grace.

I hung on every word. In every chapter Ms. Harper looks at a way that people mess up then takes a section from the Gospels that show the response of Jesus to that situation. If you are like me you will be amazed on how current Jesus was portrayed. At the end of every chapter there is a "Living In The Light Of His Story" where a prayer is provided to repent of that chapter's particular situation. Following that is a "Personal Reflection and/or Group Discussion Questions" which will allow the reader to probe deeper into the issue.

In my opinion everyone needs this book. I know I sure did and do. I will read this book again and again because I need to be reminded of God's great love often and this book will do it every time. I recommend it highly. I have to say that Ms. Harper is an excellent Bible teacher and I am going to go out and acquire all of her previous books and be ready for all her new ones simply because she is that good.
