The way the author employ relatable short stories to teach readers the importance of faith, especially in tough situations, is what I liked the most about this book.

I have started on the book. It's encouraging and explains faith at an entirely new angle for me. I think it would be handy for someone searching for spiritual fulfillment.

Grace revealed is an awesome book. It helps us to understand that whatever we are or do, only the grace of God can propel us or give usrest. Afterall, "I am what I am by the grace of God!"

'Grace Revealed' is not a single story or some ‘feel-good’ book of stories. It is a compilation of life situations and stories of people who have truly experienced the grace of God in their lives. Sievert steers clear of esoteric theology that does little to minister grace to the hurting. He comes right down to the nitty-gritty pain, the ugly, the disheartening and applies the unparalleled salve of grace. This book is a touching gift to those who are hurting from personal stories of those who have looked up from the pain into the precious eyes of grace. Overall I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars

I didn’t like it so much, but I’m also looking at it from the non-religious point of view.

The content was interesting to me but not overly so. I'm not overly religious. I usually peek into these types of books and try to keep an open mind. It was interesting but not something I would look into again.

Finding and understanding Grace is very important especially to anyone going through tough times. I love that this book talks about how beautiful Grace is using short stories that are very relatable.

Have not read the book yet but seeing how people are engaged in reading spiritual and inspiring books, I am very pleased as a fellow Christian. I hope this book can help more of our brothers and sisters be enlightened of the true meaning of "grace" that God unconditionally offers us. :)

I agree with this, interpretation and filling gaps can help people to have a bigger understandment

It is an inspirational book. It's meant to encourage those who face difficulty such as drug addicts, death of loved ones and many more.
I love the way each chapter has scriptures for reference purposes. And most of the chapter ends with a prayer in relation to the topic. This encourages one to want to read the whole book as fast as possible. There is nothing I disliked as it is well written.
I recommend this book to those who love inspirational books.

I’m kinda surprised by that. I’m an atheist and while I disagreed with stuff that was in there, overall I thought it was good for what it was.

Was it just the emphasis on God you didn’t like?

Truly, this is a book every one should have because it provides succor in times of desperation and need to find peace in perilous times. Without grace whether you are a believer or not, one stops to survive. This might sound too religious for some people but believe me, this is the truth. If any loved one is going through trying times, I wouldn't hesitate a second to give this book out and help relief a soul from stress.
