What does Grace really mean?

In The Case for Grace Student Edition, Lee Strobel and Jane Vogel present a compelling and highly personal experiential case for God, focusing on God’s transforming work in the lives of people today.

Writing with unusual candor, Lee draws upon his own journey from atheism to Christianity to explore the depth and breadth of God’s redeeming love, including those whose lives have been radically changed after discovering the “how” and “why” behind God’s amazing grace. You’ll encounter racists, addicts, and even murderers who have found new hope and purpose. You’ll meet once-bitter people who have learned to forgive those who have harmed them—and, equally amazing, people mired in guilt who have discovered that they can even forgive themselves.

Through it all, you will see how God’s grace can change your eternity and relationships… starting today.

The stories in THE CASE FOR GRACE were amazing. I loved all of them. The person who wrote the book was struggling with the meaning of grace himself. He learned the true meaning of grace as he wrote it by interviewing people who had stories of extraordinary grace along the way.  I learned that horrible people can actually be accepted by God…

I recommend this book to those who wonder what grace truly is and is like.

5 stars. Available in paperback, MP3 CD and ebook. 114 pages.
