Read an Excerpt from Grace Revealed
From the Book's Preface
Throughout my lifetime, hearing or reading about the faith journeys of thousands of Christians has substantiated my belief that individuals most often come to know Christ when they cry out to Him in a crisis. And often, their faith is reinforced, or even inspired, by the testimony of others who are willing to share the stories of their own personal relationships with Christ.
This book couples those two very common elements of the Christian experience with yet a third element—the overwhelming tendency of those who come to develop a personal relationship with Christ to return God’s grace in the form of Christian service to others in need.
The Christian experience many times progresses through the following three phases:
- Experiencing a crisis
- Receiving grace
- Returning grace to others
Whatever their crisis— a serious health issue, depression, PTSD, a history of emotional or sexual abuse, an addiction to drugs, or alcohol or the loss of a loved one—those contributing stories to this book all cried out to God for help. In their desperate appeal for relief, their prayers were answered, and they were blessed immeasurably by the loving grace of God.
If you find yourself in a desperate crisis that is causing great emotional pain and suffering, it is my fervent prayer that reading how others experienced God’s grace can provide you with relief and a transformation that inspires you to return that grace to others in need.
