Publisher's Summary

Grace—it’s a stained-glass, impersonal word until it happens to you... Until you have been broken beyond belief and need a miracle for your soul. Until you have betrayed a loved one and cannot bring him back. Until you have befriended every darkness and are desperate for the light. That’s when God’s relentless, amazing, very personalized grace finds you. It reached a slave trader onboard a ship raiding Africa’s coast in March 1748. He later gave the world its most beloved hymn. It struck the Christian church’s most treacherous enemy on a Damascus road in AD 45, and he became the gospel’s greatest messenger. And it can free you too... of any shameful memory, open wound, unthinking mistake, or willful choice. Encountering God’s grace changes lives forever. Let Dr. David Jeremiah show you how the transforming mercy that captured songwriter John Newton and the apostle Paul can awaken within you a fresh experience of the God who loves you fearlessly and pursues you with abandon.

I need more stars!!!

I know 5 stars is not enough, I'm not sure 10 would be either, this book is quite simply the best book on Grace that I've ever read. What a blessing to have people in this world pour out their hearts and give so graciously of the insight, love and understanding God has given them...all I can do is say, thank you! I know my Lord and Savior will do/has done so much more for them than I could. What a blessing! Must read!! Extremely valuable!!!

A wonderful roadmap for the struggling soul!

This is a great resource for anyone, but especially for the serious seeker of truth. That is, one who fully understands and accepts that they are a sinner, without any hope of rescue, other than the promise and power of GRACE. It's amazingly written, and narrated beautifully. I highly recommend purchasing the actual book too. You will want to highlight many passages!

God's Love, Grace

John Newton's story encapsulates the gift of grace once he sees the world through the eyes of Jesus Christ. He writes the hymn, Amazing Grace. Then the author explains the depravity of mankind making everyone capable of, both, righteousness and evil. David Jeremiah refers to the Apostle Paul to cite that righteousness exists living in Jesus Christ. Paul also points out that man's works mean nothing without faith. Grace accepted by faith in Jesus justifies one for eternal life with God. Analysis of the Prodigal Son and some personal experiences are the next platforms for Captured by Grace: No One Is Beyond the Reach of a Loving God. It is never too late to turn back to the One who loves us, regardless, and who promises to shed His grace on all; but He offers salvation to those who learn the lessons from His word and follow Jesus Christ. Taking God for granted perpetuates the drift away from Him. Crisis is often the impetus that reorients lost souls to God's plan. Our faith is tested with temptation, evil's shrewd suggestion for us to disobey God. Grace saves us through our faith and actions demonstrate this by our obedience to God's will. Grace enlightens the world. The ultimate gift from God is His grace allowing Christ's victory over death in his resurrection. We know there is life after death as Christ fulfills that prophecy. This makes forbearance, the longsuffering the bible mentions, tolerable with an ever present joy, regardless of circumstance. Thankfulness for everything God does is the mark of a Christian captured by grace.
