In 1987, an IRA bomb buried Gordon Wilson and his twenty-year-old daughter beneath five feet of rubble. Gordon alone survived. And forgave. He said of the bombers, " I have lost my daughter, but I bear no grudge . . . I shall pray, tonight and every night, that God will forgive them." His words caught the media's ears -- and out of one man's grief, the world got a glimpse of grace. Grace is the church's great distinctive. It's the one thing the world cannot duplicate, and the one thing it craves above all else -- for only grace can bring hope and transformation to a jaded world. In What's So Amazing About Grace? award-winning author Philip Yancey explores grace at street level. If grace is God's love for the undeserving, he asks, then what does it look like in action? And if Christians are its sole dispensers, then how are we doing at lavishing grace on a world that knows far more of cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy? Yancey sets grace in the midst of life's stark images, tests its mettle against horrific "ungrace." Can grace survive in the midst of such atrocities as the Nazi holocaust? Can it triumph over the brutality of the Ku Klux Klan? Should any grace at all be shown to the likes of Jeffrey Dahmer, who killed and cannibalized seventeen young men? Grace does not excuse sin, says Yancey, but it treasures the sinner. True grace is shocking, scandalous. It shakes our conventions with its insistence on getting close to sinners and touching them with mercy and hope. It forgives the unfaithful spouse, the racist, the child abuser. It loves today's AIDS-ridden addict as much as the tax collector of Jesus' day. In his most personal and provocative book ever, Yancey offers compelling, true portraits of grace's life-changing power. He searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. He asks, How can Christians contend graciously with moral issues that threaten all they hold dear? And he challenges us to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know, What's So Amazing About Grace?… (mere)

恩典意即我們不能作任何事叫神愛我們更多;恩典也意謂我們不能作任何事叫神少愛我們一些。我們經常談論恩典​,可是我們明白它的意義嗎?更重要的是,我們真的相信恩典……並在日常生活中有力地展現它嗎?​
作者在本書的字裏行間流露出恩典是什麼、不是什麼,並何以只有基督徒才能表彰這世界所渴慕的恩典。作者認為​恩典是教會獨有的寶貴恩賜,是世界不能仿製,並且極其渴求的;只有恩典才能把盼望與改變帶給四分五裂的世界​

Excellent book exploring what's so amazing about grace. And how often the opposite - ungrace - is shown ( )

“I loved this book, which I read some years ago when our Homegroup studied it. The inspiring examples of Grace , included in this easy- to- read book have remained in my mind. To show Grace (undeserved kindness) has become one of the “spiritual disciplines ?“ I aspire to in my life. I have read that Grace is something offered by no other religion except Christianity, and something that should make Christians unique.
Highly recommended.” Penny

Neste livro, o premiado escritor Philip Yancey examina detalhadamente a graça divina. Se a graça é o amor de Deus para os que não a merecem, ele pergunta, então que aparência ela tem em ação? Yancey coloca a graça no meio de imagens cotidianas complexas, compara o seu caráter com a horrenda "falta de graça".
