Book Review: God is a Gift


Book Description:

Doug Reed uses important insights from scripture, the historical context of Jesus’s day, and personal experience to prove God’s fervent passion to give Himself to us. When we understand God’s purpose, we begin to see His presence in places we thought He was absent. We come to know God not as one who occasionally visits but as one who abides, always giving His gift, even when we suffer defeat, weakness, and loss. 

God is a Gift is invaluable for overcoming fear and finding a life filled with God’s presence. It reveals how grace revolutionizes our relationship with the Lord. Topics include understanding the New Covenant, living in the gift of righteousness, abundant life, worship, and intimacy with God.

My Review:

This book strongly stresses the gift of God’s grace for us and what we can do with that gift.  It is always available to us.  The book is scripturally  and historically based.  It is well-written and easy to understand. At around 200 pages, it is not a lengthy or complicated read.  I have read many books on this topic and honestly, this book did not contain anything differently from other books I have read.  If you are interested in reading a book about grace then you would enjoy this book.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book from the author.  I was not obligated to write a positive review.  The opinions in this review are my own.
