    Sample too short

    The sample was 20 pages - 18 of which were title page, table of contents, etc. which only left one page for the actual book. That was too short to tell whether I wanted to buy the entire book.

    Powerful book...

    Embrace Grace is one of the most encouraging and insightful non-fiction books I've read that addresses the forgiven life that can only be found in Christ. Liz discusses a multitude of topics based on e-mails she has received from women who were hurting and needed assurance that their Heavenly Father loves them and has forgiven them. I received comfort within the pages of Embrace Grace that I, too, am not exempt from God's ever-reaching power and all-encompassing grace. For me the most powerful chapter was 'Embrace Sin.' What? You ask. Embrace sin? Here's the subtitle. 'How could he love me after all I've done?' This chapter includes both before and after salvation. It still gives me goosebumps and I get a little choked up when I think about it. Very powerful. A must read. Need I say more?

    I am going through a struggle to forgive....mostly myself. I have read and reread Embrace Grace at least a thousand times. In fact, the cover is coming off. I take it to church with me and read. The comfort of reading what I am feeling in the house of the Lord makes it even more difficult. I usually end up crying, hoping I can feel forgive and let it go. I wish I could Embrace Liz although my life is not the BAD girl type.
    The book brings me comfort and understanding.

    Liz Curtis Higgs once again knocks it out of the ballpark.

    Reviewed by Lori M for Readers Favorite Liz Curtis Higgs once again knocks it out of the ballpark. When Liz writes, it is like she is speaking directly to the reader and knows each one’s fears and concerns. Self-described as a girl who has been hurt by almost everyone in her life, Curt-Higgs helps others take of their “I’m a bad person” coats and embrace grace, doubt, faith, truth, sin, forgiveness and repentance. Who among us hasn’t wondered how God could love us after all the 'bad' stuff we’ve done? All we need to know is that God has forgiven us and loves us, which should be more than enough for anyone. Liz helped me understand what grace truly means. I have struggled with its definition, but she perfectly explained it when she said it is simply God’s love. Liz is known as an encourager and she certainly provides tons of it in this book. Sharing her own story as well as stories of other women who have written to her about their overwhelming feelings of guilt, Curtis-Higgs shows us that we don’t have to feel as if we don’t belong anywhere because God can use us, as broken and imperfect as we are, for His glory. One warning though; if this is the first Liz Curtis Higgs you read, once you have finished, you are going to want all of the other dozens of books she has written. Yeah, she is THAT good. Thank you, Lizzie, for showing women what God wants for their lives and the gift He has waiting for them.
