Video Notes

Philip Yancey: "I'm convinced that the future of the church in this new century depends on how well we master this notion of grace."

Philip Yancey: "I wrote this book because grace is not the first word that comes to mind when people think of Christians."

Philip Yancey: "Gordon MacDonald once said, 'Grace is the one thing the church has that you can't get anywhere else.'"

Philip Yancey: "Never, ever, underestimate the power of grace. It is a gift from God, and it holds within it a supernatural power."

Philip Yancey: "Grace is a gift, free of charge, on the house. You only have to do one thing to receive a gift: open your hands."

    A Book Every Christian Should Read

    This book, other than the Bible, did more to grow my faith and relationship with God than any other book I have read. If you want to understand what it should mean to be a Christian, read this book.
