Grace Is Greater: God's Plan to Overcome Your Past, Redeem Your Pain, and Rewrite Your Storyby Kyle Idleman
The writer of the letter to the Hebrews said, "See to it that no one misses the grace of God." Over the centuries much ink has been spilled on the subject of grace. Yet perhaps nothing is as hard to explain as God's grace. It doesn't make sense. It's not fair. It can't possibly cover over what I've done. The best way--perhaps the only real way--to understand it is to experience it. But too often in our churches we're not getting grace across and grace is not experienced.
Bestselling author and pastor Kyle Idleman wants everyone to experience the grace of God. Through the powerful medium of story, Grace Is Greater leads readers past their hang-ups toward an understanding of grace that is bigger than our mistakes, our failures, our desire for revenge, and our seemingly impossible situations. No sin is so great, no bitterness so deep that God's grace cannot transform the heart and rewrite the story.
Perfect for individuals and also for small groups and church-wide studies, Grace Is Greater will help readers truly grasp God's grace, even if the Christians around them have failed to live it.

God's grace is something we often talk about but never really stop to try to truly perceive. That's the exercise Kyle Idleman's book, Grace is Greater, wants the reader to do. Idleman is best known for his book Not a Fan, and I think people like his writing and teaching for its practicality and the way he captures the consciousness of the everyman. Grace is Greater is no different. Kyle starts with a simple equation: Grace > __________. He asks his congregation (and the reader) to fill in the blank with their worst sin. Kyle suggests throughout this book that we cannot ever hope to understand God's grace until we experience it. And when we do, we will realize, "The truth is I am worse than I ever wanted to admit, but God's grace is greater than I ever could have imagined." Idleman helps the reader to understand the power that this knowledge really has. He teaches that grace can erase our guilt and cover our shame. Grace can heal our relationships and cure our bitterness. And his book illustrates this in Idleman's typical no-nonsense style that you will appreciate and relate to quickly. Grace is Greater is Idleman's newest soon-to-be hit. After you read this book, pass it on to a friend. Our churches and our world could be mightily healed if we all begin to perceive how we are receiving God's grace every day. I received this book free from Baker Books through the Baker Books Bloggers Program. The opinions I have expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
Like every other one of his books, Kyle has given us an incredible read in Grace Is Greater. Full of light humor, loving truth and deep grace. I greatly appreciate the way Kyle can take a heavy topic and keep it light enough to be enjoyable but deep enough to really get to the heart of the topic. I also appreciate the way he writes to me, the average intellect. So many authors tackle the topic of grace and it quickly becomes highly academic and intellectual, hard to follow or understand and connect with. But Kyle takes the same topic and makes it accessible to me, to those like me who get lost in the high academic language, to those who like me need things kept simple yet true. I highly recommend all of Kyle's books and will certainly be adding this to the list I go to when asked for a book recommendation.
