From Good to Grace - Letting Go of the Goodness Gospel: A Book Review

About The Book:

God is calling you to something greater than good.
So many of us feel as if we do not do enough and, in fact, are not enough. We try hard to be good--a good friend, mom, wife, Christian, employee, or ministry leader--hoping for that "atta-girl" from God, some heavenly assertion that we matter. In the process, we find ourselves living by a lesser gospel: the gospel of goodness. It's a gospel without grace, and in the end, it's good for nothing.

With compelling illustrations from her own life and from Scripture, Christine Hoover helps you start asking, "What does God want for me?" before asking, "What does God want from me?" You'll find yourself breathing a sigh of relief at this powerful message of freedom and hope. Rather than serving God out of obligation or duty, you'll be compelled to love and serve God with great joy.

My Review:

Christians in general, and women specifically, try to live the perfect life, doing so much that we end up burned out and think that this is the way to be a good Christian. But the Bible says differently. Grace is what saves us. This book exudes that message in a way that you feel like you are sitting right with the author and having a coffee and conversation with her. I loved this book from from cover to last page. I was so encouraging and I truly can I say every woman NEEDS to read it! The author was honest, transparent and I loved all her personal stories, particularly her journey as a parent to a child with Autism. A great and encouraging read!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
