"Amazing Grace" is a song revered by many. People worldwide know the words and sing its tune. In "Captured by Grace" Dr. David Jeremiah tells the story behind the song "Amazing Grace." He also shares how grace from God can change our lives just like it changed the life of John Newton, author of "Amazing Grace."
I found the stories and words of wisdom encouraging. So many people have been through really rough times in their lives, yet they come out on top. They become better people by the grace of God. What is the grace of God? How does it make a difference in our lives. Dr. David Jeremiah explains that and more in "Captured by Grace."
My favorite part of the book is the chapter in which Jeremiah retells the story of the Prodigal Son. He describes the events of the story, then also tells a little history of the day. It gave so much more insight to the story and the implications of what was happening there.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who's looking for a little more grace in their life.
