I liked this book. It was a very quick read, but packed with thought provoking discussion about the grace that God shows us and how we extend (or don’t extend) that grace to others. I thought the first half of the book was more applicable to a wider audience than the second half, but overall a nice book.
Haggard’s no-nonsense approach was refreshing. I like the message in the book – everyone sins, there isn’t a better or worse sin, so why is it such a surprise when we learn of other people sinning and why do we try so hard to hide our own personal sins? I love the way she encouraged accountability – instead of being accountable to others, why don’t we all be accountable for others? It was a different way to look at being part of family of believers.
I also thought the discussion on forgiveness was helpful. Believers are required to forgive as we have been forgiven, but forgiveness might look different in different circumstances.
Overall, an interesting book that I found inspiring. If you struggle with giving or receiving grace or forgiveness, you will find this book helpful. I enjoyed it.
