Captured by Grace a Review

this post contains affiliate links

Timely and encouraging words to initiate a fresh experience of God's grace.

By following the dramatic story of John Newton, the Amazing Grace hymn writer, and the apostle Paul's own encounter with the God of grace, pastor and teacher Dr. David Jeremiah helps readers understand the freeing power of permanent forgiveness and mercy.

Dramatic stories and biblical insights highlight the very personal effects of grace and how grace:

* wondrously spans all our differences
* rescues us from our lostness 
* helps us overcome our weaknesses,
* takes us from victims to victors 

What an amazing book! We all know the words to Amazing Grace, but many do not know the history behind this beautiful hymn. Dr. Jeremiah includes the story along with other stories of how grace was shown in many ways to unsuspecting and undeserving people.

While reading some of the stories, I began to wonder if I could be on the grace giving end of the situation. It would be very hard, but something to think about.

  1. It is my favorite hymn. I sing it to my daughter when she is not feeling well and calms her right down :)
