The Grace Effect
How the Power of One Life Can Reverse the Corruption of Unbelief
By Larry Taunton
I received this book to review a few months ago and I have to say it was an ok read. In the book he uses his adoption of his youngest daughter from the world of communism as the underbed for his book. He uses it to basically to show that God’s grace exists through the presence of Christians. He comes to great conclussions with beautiful examples however I just could not get into this book.
I remember reading Blue like jazz which had a “blog” style of writing and this one is very similar. I have never been able to get into books that are written like that because they feel liked pieced together posts jammed into a cover. I love the hope he gives us that shows us that no world or situation are beyond redemption from “the grace effect”. So basically I love his discussion and story, but find that his writing style bothered me.
He also loved to jam in giant words and drawn out sentences just for the sake it. Long story short it was an ok read with a great topic and hope but in a writing style that I found to be bothersome at times.
With that said I think it is worth the read but there are better books on grace like from Yancy and others.
