40 Days Of Grace – Book Review
Many of us have grown up with a distorted image of God. We’ve grown up believing we have to earn God’s favor to get to heaven. We believe that the way to God’s heart is to earn His love. We strive to be “good enough”.
In 40 Days Of Grace – Discovering God’s Liberating Love, Rich Miller shows us there is a better way.
Grace. Some of us say grace at mealtime… some of sing about Amazing Grace… some of us even know one or two people named Grace… but how many of us truly understand the biblical concept of grace and just how liberating it really is?
Consider 40 Days Of Grace a biblical study on the concept of grace, written in a devotional format, by the man who co-authored The Grace Course.
40 Days Of Grace contains 40 daily readings that explain the major Bible passages on grace in an easy-to-understand, relevant way. The author also discusses many of the major issues we struggle with when it comes to applying the concept of grace to our lives – things like fear, works, father wounds, shame, and more!
In addition to lots of Scriptures to study and real life examples to relate to, the author includes A Thought To Chew On, A Truth To Remember, A Question To Mull Over, and a concluding prayer in each reading.
Although 40 Days Of Grace is a great devotional, this book would also work well in a small group setting where you could explore the concepts and discussion questions with others.
I recommend this book and rate it 4 out of 5 stars.

Sounds like a good book! In Ephesians 1 (group memorization), there are 3 references to God’s grace in the first 8 verses: verse 2 (“Grace be to you”), verse 5 (“To the praise of the glory of His grace”), verse 7 (“according to the riches of His grace”). That’s as far as we’ve gotten up to this week.
This looks like a great book! I think that although we all know we have been saved by grace we often struggle to live in light of that. Grace is truly an incredible gift but one which we find hard to grasp at times.
