it was amazing

This book is pretty challenging in getting you thinking about grace and the character of God. I can see why it is so controversial, because legalism is so much easier to grasp, conceptually and also emotionally, because it gives us a feeling of balance and justice.

Manning is incessant in his account of the Lord's mercy and the truth about our sinful and imperfect nature. There is so much to glean from this book, but a thesis is not one of them, it's very much a process more than a case or an argument.

I suggest this book to anyone who is down on his or her self, or feels the heavy weight of the burden of trying to live life well and be a good person, or feels distant from God and needs to see the fog clear so he or she can see where the bridge to our Lord's embrace begins.
