Living God’s Story of Grace
Elizabeth Reynolds Turnage
Book Summary: An encouraging, vital study of the redemption stories in Scripture. If you have already learned God’s story of grace, find out what it means to live in his story in faith and hope. --Are you living God’s story, or just reading it? We know that God’s grand narrative encompasses everything and everyone, and that our own individual stories have a place in it. We believe, but often we have a hard time living our place in this great story. Though we know God is at work bringing us redemption and peace, we often doubt that he will truly rescue or comfort us in our day-to-day struggles. When this happens, when we live in fear rather than faithfulness, we try to take matters into our own hands and bring about the endings to our stories that we want. So what do we do when we start trusting and waiting in our own faithfulness instead of God’s? This encouraging, vital study of the redemption stories in Scripture helps us reflect on the stories in our own lives and surrender our trust back to the One to whom it belongs. Each chapter focuses on a Scripture passage and is broken into four main sections to aid your individual study and encourage rich group conversation. If you have already learned God’s story of grace, find out what it means to live in his story in faith and hope.
Review: This book rips you raw and rebuilds your faith! I was reading the Bible stories and the personal stories to go along with the daily walk through grace and would laugh, cry and empathize with all the stories. It was all worth it to get to the story of the $ 10.00 and lunch with a stranger. Never again can I look at a person so different from myself and not look for a common bond. That alone was worth the read. I can not express my thankfulness to Ms. Turnage for being moved to write this book it was well worth the devotion time.
I would like to thank Net Galley and P & R Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
