Simple Gospel, Simply Grace: How Your Christian Life Is Really Supposed to Work
by: Harvest House Publishers
Product rating: 5.0 with 7 reviews
“We’re all natural-born legalists,” says author Bob Christopher. “We try to live for God, but it’s impossible to do.”
Why? Because all our efforts and ideas are based on the same fear-based, guilt-driven plot line: Try harder. As you’ve undoubtedly noticed, it just doesn’t work.
Simple Gospel, Simply Grace showcases an alternative, which is actually God’s original plan: Everything you’re trying to achieve in the Christian life has already been given to you–from God, by grace, in Christ.
Do you struggle to receive what God has freely given? How can you begin to experience true freedom, assurance of your forgiveness, and victory over sin? How can the power that raised Jesus from the dead enable you to live and love the way He did?
You’ll discover the answers in this crystal-clear portrayal of the simple gospel–which is simply grace.

When Grace’s estranged sister Liza shows up on her doorstep, the timing couldn’t be worse. Grace’s beloved boss and benefactor, Bennett Marshfield, has finally gotten her to agree to a DNA test to establish if he is, in fact, her uncle.
