By Grace Alone : How the Grace of God Amazes Me
Author: Sinclair B. Ferguson
Are you truly amazed by God's grace? Or have you grown accustomed to it? Yes, we sing of God's Amazing Grace, but do you truly understand what you as a Christian have experienced in receiving the grace of God? Or do you take divine grace for granted?In By Grace Alone: How the Grace of God Amazes Me, Dr Sinclair B. Ferguson laments that we have lost the joy and energy that is experienced when grace seems truly 'amazing.' In an effort to restore the wonder of diving grace, he reflects on it from seven angles, each built around a stanza from a rich but little known hymn, 'O How the Grace of God Amazes Me,' written by Emmanuel T. Sibomana (ca. 1915-1975), a pastor in the African nation of Burundi. This book poses probing questions for today's believer: 'If I am not saved by God's grace, can I really be living in it? Can I really be tasting, and savoring, and delighting in it?' But those willing to delve into God's Word with Dr. Ferguson will come away with a deeper astonishment at the depths of God's grace.
Rich in biblical exposition and in theological depth, By Grace Alone is a series of great messages by one of today's greatest preachers on some of the greatest Scripture texts- all on one of the greatest themes of the Bible: amazing grace! This book will excite your mind, stir your affection, convict your soul, win your heart, and move you into action. It will evangelize, disciple and mature all kinds of readers. Dr. Ferguson has given us another feast, and there is food here for all-saved and unsaved, ministers and laypeople, young and old. --Dr. Joel R. Beeke President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary Grand Rapids, MichiganMost of us have books lying on a table or a bookshelf somewhere, waiting for us to get around to reading them. Please don't let this book be in that category. Sinclair Ferguson is one of the clearest, brightest lights in evangelical Christianity today. This book will point you to the freedom and exuberance of living in the grace of God through Jesus Christ. Read this book for your own encouragement, and pass it along to a new disciple or an (as yet) unbelieving neighbor. --Russell D. Moore: Dean, School of Theology Vice president for academic administration The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Louisville, Kentucky.Sinclair Ferguson's biblically insightful and pastorally profound meditations on the manifold grace of God are strung like pearls on the stanzas of the African hymn 'O How the Grace of God Amazes Me.' Christ is at the very center, as He must be: in Him, our enslaved hearts find freedom, our guilty hearts find forgiveness, our troubled hearts find a Defender in the darkness, and our embattled hearts find strength to resist the enemy's enticements. Thirsty hearts, come to Jesus and drink deeply from His fountain of amazing, life-giving, joy-imparting, hope-sustaining grace. --Dennis E. Johnson Professor of Practical Theology, Westminster Seminary California Escondido, California
