Book Review: Victim of Grace


Book Description:

Robin Jones Gunn reveals poignant truths from her life as well as from the lives of women in the Bible as she flips the notion that we are at the mercy of circumstances. She asks, what if God has dreams for you? What if he is accomplishing those dreams in the midst of shattered hopes?

When life doesn’t go as expected, it’s easy to feel like a victim. We look at the events that have gone wrong and view our lives as impaired. What if we could see our future as God sees it? Would our view radically change if we understood we are indeed victims rather than of happenstance?

God, the Relentless Lover, has vigorously sought you. He has instilled dreams in your heart that are grander than you can imagine. But the route to their fulfillment often is through a path you wouldn’t seek.

What if God wants to take the hopes that tug at your heart and enliven them? Are you ready to live inside the mysterious joy of being a victim of grace?

My Review:

I have read other books by this author that were fiction and she writes enjoyable non-fiction as well as the fiction books she has written.  She has written several series books that are written to glorify God, using her words.  In this book, she writes about God’s gift of grace in our lives.  Each chapter deals with a different topic and includes stories from her own life as well as a the story of a biblical character that further explains what she is discussing.   From Ruth to Mary,  she has included several well known stories and gives her description of how God’s grace was involved.  The words flowed easily and was easy to read.   Many times it read as if the author was talking with me, which is consist with the author’s talent of story-telling.   It contained many scripture references as well as quotes from well-known persons.  I highly recommend this book to others as I don’t think you will be disaappointed.  I have read several books on grace and this one is within the top selections.

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