"There is nothing we can do to make God love us more. There is nothing we can do to make God love us less." What a freeing statement, which is made throughout this book. We don't have to earn God's grace or Love, it's a gift. Great book!
There is nothing we can do to make God love us more. There is nothing we can do to make God love us less. We speak of grace often. But do we understand it? More important, do we truly believe in it...and do our lives proclaim it as powerfully as our words?

I really enjoyed this book. There are many personal stories related that bring home the points in the chapters to make them feel very personal. It won't give you all the answers, but it sure does make you think and provides a framework about how we could all be more "gracious" to others.
Philip Yancey is a difficult author to read for me. It's good writing, but I never feel like it's laid back. This book was no exception. However, it did help me in one very specific way that I will always remember. So I guess it was a good book in that regard!
I started by reading the story about Daisy and was not able to finish reading it. It's a powerful story. It is a tough book. All kinds of graphics and I love the page with a mirror that states, "The one Jesus loves" and I'm going to put that under a mirror that I have. It challenges your beliefs and thought systems.
