    Very inspirational and uplifting. This book is a great reminder that God's grace is a gift. We can't earn it. We don't deserve it. But he lavishes his grace on us anyway. Larry does a great job of helping both new and old believers understand the different aspects of their faith as Christians and he explains why we do what we do: reading the Bible, taking communion, etc. This series of short works is filled with great illustrations that expand on the author's point, helping the reader fully grasp some of the difficult concepts of the Bible. It is written in a way that individuals from all walks of life and at any stage in their faith can understand and begin applying to their life.
