“Grace woos and weds us.” This divine gift is dispensed with the overflowing surge of a fire hydrant, writes bestselling author and pastor Lucado (Outlive Your Life) in the latest addition to his consider . The topic of grace, and grace versus works in particular, is nothing new, and readers are unlikely to experience any epiphanies. Still, Lucado’s signature clause-filled, comfort-food style and his universal messaging are sure to warm the heart. Grace can be a somewhat intangible topic, and at times Lucado falls into abstraction (e.g., “[Grace] comes at us... wave upon wave”). Yet readers who are struggling to keep up with high expectations will appreciate practical discussions of confession that redeems and acceptance that frees them from a need-to-please-people attitude. Fans will be pleased to see that Lucado is sticking to his formula, creating another inspirational piece that could be easily transformed into a gift book of quotes. Readers who prefer a deeper theological dive may want to hold out for a meatier investigation of the topic. Agent: Steve Green, Anvil Management. (Sept.)
