A book about Grace

Im back into full book review mode again.  I just love reading all the different books I get the opportunity to review.  I just finished Grace by Max Lucado.  I have a fairly high standard for rating books, so maybe people shouldn't always take my opinion too seriously, but this is another book I just can't recommend.  While the illustrations were helpful and some points made well, I felt the book had a sense of flippancy to it.  There was a phrase in the book that said that God would love to lavish us in grace if we are simply willing to give God the nod.  God doesn't just want a nod from us.  He wants our entire life...pure and simple.  He desires to have us completely.  I do appreciate the transparency the author has.  He is willing to share personal illustrations about his own life.  He shows us snippets here and there of how he feels and even fails.  I appreciate that, I really do.  The book just didn't wow me.  I wasn't drawn to be constantly picking it up.  It wasn't one that i talked about with my friends.  I don't really know how to describe it except it was one that I counted pages until the end, and I wasn't terribly sad when the end came.

I was able to review this book as a part of the BookSneeze program.  I was not required to write a positive review.
