I thought this was a great book! It was very encouraging to hear people's stories and how God helped them through their troubling times. I really liked how the author added his own thoughts after each story. The Bible verses were also very encouraging. It was very helpful to me that at the end of each story, they stated verses helpful to those specific problems so as to be more individualized.
There were times that the book would get a little dry but the author would quickly remedy that.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone, not just those going through a struggling time. Grace Revealed is helpful even when life is great to remind us how we can rely solely on God when trials come.

I like the subject of Grace and seeing it as a subject in this book makes me excited to read it. I'm just starting the book and with these opinion about it, I might as well complete it. But so far, I'm enjoying it.

The topics covered by the author through short stories are common and thus, people could relate themselves. This helps people to find the soothing feel about God's grace and his blessing over everyone. The book tends to encourage and motivate people to keep moving ahead, overcoming the difficulties and finding His grace. I've not finished the book yet but loved it so far.

I'm curious if these short stories are only relatable to Christian readers or can those who are spiritual or of another faith? Is it possible to still gain motivation or wisdom from this book?

I'm a Non-Christian myself and the book motivated me in the same way as it would do any Christian reader. The religious tone just adds charm to the spiritual theme that author intends to convey; it doesn't act as a barrier.

I have not yet read this book but the topic of Grace has been viewed and interpreted in different and sometimes confusing ways. The major problem I have personally known has been about Grace invalidating the Law. It would be good if this particular book clarifies the matter in light of the major differing views whilst pointing to the real meaning of Grace.

I really enjoyed how much emphasis the author puts on how attainable forgiveness is! It's really inspiring, especially for people who fear that they have run out of places to turn to. My only problem was the repeated mention of sexual abuse without a real trigger warning, but other than that, I think the book was well written and informative. I would recommend to others, regardless of their religious background. It is always interesting to learn about other faiths!! :D
I’m yet to read the book. With a theme like this, I’m curious to learn from the author's point of view. I agree that there’s much to gain from learning about other faiths.

This book is a wonderful package for people dealing with work related stress, bad addictions and general anxiety.On the other hand each character in this book uses the experience to helpe others overcome situations related to their experience. This book is a Life Coach, that is why i rate it 4 out of 4 stars.

Most of the books that deals with religion usually preach. But with this book, based on the reviews, I am delighted that that is not the case. I like the fact that the stories inspire without being too hard in making the readers to be believers with the snap of the finger.

I was unsure about reading this book because I don’t often enjoy reading about religion, but after seeing all these reviews I think it’ll definitely be next on my list! I’m most interested to read about the attainability and power of forgiveness, as that‘s one of the most important things humans can do for one another.

I am currently reading this book and the few pages I have turned have not disappointed. I am familiar with the scriptures so far I'm also enjoying the shot individual stories in it. This book is really encouraging and in my opinion, it can help those dealing with stress and anxiety.
