In this ten-session small group Bible study, award-winning author Philip Yancey brings you and your small group on an adventure of gut-level encounters with radical, life-changing stories of God s grace.
Through candid interviews, Yancey weaves true-life faces and experiences into powerful sessions that offer intimate glimpses of God s power to forgive the most deplorable deeds, love the unlovable, and redeem the seemingly irredeemable. And through Yancey s pull-no-punches style he will bust through preconceptions and get participants thinking and talking, and help you discover together why grace is truly amazing.
This study will help you gain a better understanding of what grace is, why it is so precious, and will teach you how to integrate it into your life. Engaging questions, provocative Bible studies, and lively discussions are just part of the package. You ll also be challenged to look for grace where it counts most: in your character and personal life.
If you re ready to discover grace as more than just a fluffy concept, buckle your seat belt. You re about to take a journey to the heart and soul of Christianity. The next life grace changes could just be yours.
