Review by David Mathis
Christians, of all people, cannot be content with small visions of grace.
The message that made us is “the gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20:24), “the word of his grace” (Acts 20:32), “the grace of God in truth” (Colossians 1:6). And the life we’re called to live happens in “this grace in which we stand” (Romans 5:2), as we’re “strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 2:1). It’s all undeserved, lavish favor from God.
So grace that is cheap, thin, and shallow will not suffice. What the Christian desperately needs — what the world desperately needs — is the true grace of God, in all its lushness and texture. To drink it in, be fed by it, be changed by it, to swim across it, and dive deep in it.
