    This is a somewhat updated edition with a 31 day devotional at the back, and this is a reread, so I'm not sure if this link it the one showing here or not, but I'll shelve the one I added to GR for the reread since it would only let me switch existing editions since someone has put them altogether, even though that is wrong due to added material, new introduction and updated examples, etc.This is the best book I've ever read on the sometimes elusive Grace preached in the Bible. So many people wa [...]

    I appreciate the thought-provoking nature of this book. I really like some aspects of "Grace Awakening", but had some disagreements with Swindoll as well. First of all, I enjoy Swindoll's writing style. His books are always simple and easy to understand, I'm sure even for a new Christian. I think it's great to dwell on the truths of grace. Where Swindoll shines is his explanation of grace as it relates to our relationship with God. There is nothing we can do to deserve salvation or to please God [...]

    Wow! I usually don't like when people use the term "life-changing" while describing a book, speech, conference, or film because it is usually only "life-changing" for a day or two after the experience before the feelings finally fade. However, The Grace Awakening was life-changing for me. I would urge the reader of this book to also spend the extra money and purchase the companion radio broadcast series with the same title by Charles Swindoll from the Insight for Living Ministry. I actually list [...]

    Enjoyed meditating on this devotional about grace. Some of my favorite quotes include:During his days as president, Thomas Jefferson and a group of companions were traveling across the country on horseback. They came to a river which had overflowed its banks because of a recent downpour. The swollen river had washed the bridge away. Each rider was forced to ford the river on horseback, fighting for his life against the rapid currents. The very real possibility of death threatened each rider, whi [...]

    3.5 stars. This book revealed to me how much I want grace and want what Dr. Swindoll wrote about it. It also revealed some of my more recent struggles with legalism.The good: I was encouraged by Swindoll's writings about grace and it help me ponder and long for a "Grace Awakening."I also wanted more. I wanted to know as a legalist how to be free. How does a rule follower and one who has a tendency towards legalism become free?To be fair, I read parts and skimmed/skipped other parts. So perhaps i [...]

    I bought this book when I was in college, but I didn't read it until a few years ago. I was researching the concept of grace for a piece of fiction I was writing. Then, in the middle of reading it, I realized that I had forgotten why I was reading it. Why, oh, why isn't the concept of grace talked about more in our lives? Swindoll makes his point over and over again that if we fully understood grace, it would change everything about us. I was changed in reading this and the book I was writing ch [...]

    Charles Swindoll has brought out an excellent understanding of grace from God's word which has altered my way of thinking about grace and shown me how little I actually know about grace. Furthermore showing me practical ways I can live my life according to God's grace and only by His grace. I strongly recommend this book to be read by anyone, "grace" how much do you really know about that word? and how do you know if you're not a grace killer?

    Swindoll does a good job interweaving scripture plus personal anecdotes to help clearly convey why Grace is the best gift a human could ever receive and why it should and has transformed of so many. However there was particularly disappointing chapter I found both offensive and incomplete. This chapter discussed the needs/roles of men and women in a relationship.

    An excellent book, showing the need for God's grace, and what it means in real life. A plea against fundamentalism and legalism, towards a richer, freer life in Christ. A little heavy in places, perhaps, but very sound. Well worth the effort. Similar message to Philip Yancey's 'What's so Amazing about Grace?'

    Clara Roberts
    This was my least favorite of Swindoll's book. I felt that the book lacked balance. Reflective thought seemed to be missing. I felt that he made little or no effort to understand the point of view of others who disagree with him. In other words I felt that he failed to extend Grace to others.

    A Great eye opener for anybody, that like to cry about anything and everything. Look up and have faith. Be grateful and content.

    Katharine
    A must read for anyone who is discouraged, wants to give up on being happy or has been bullied in their faith.

    Mike (the Paladin)
    One of the auther's best. he faces complete grace more completely here than in some of his other works where he seems to fear that his readers may confuse "grace" with "license".

    Charles R. Swindoll has written a 311-page book entitled “The Grace Awakening: Believing in grace is one thing. Living it is another.” Published in 1990 by Word Publishing, this book proclaims the grace of God in both a pastoral and personal tone. Before beginning to answer objections, Swindoll assists the reader in formulating his or her concept of grace by illustrating how it emerges in common-day experiences. Many conservatives may share objections to grace that parallel their objections [...]

    In this book, Swindoll looks hard at an often-talked about yet also overlooked aspect of the Christian faith - grace. He shows how vital it is and how it needs to be woven into all aspects of our life in order for us to live truly free. Each chapter was a lot to take in, but I hope that in the reading of this book, my own viewpoint has been changed and I begin to implement the lessons I learned in my own life and walk. I look forward to sharing this book with friends. Favorite quotes: "There are [...]

    This book changed my life! Wept on every page. Never knew God loved me. Was raised singing about the marvelous grace of Jesus but when the preacher came to the pulpit i was a sinner in the hand of an angry God. I hated my walk and was on the verge of leaving the faith. This book changed my life!

    We all need to read this book in the world we live inGrace is the answer to how we reach a lost world looking for answers Grace extended to us so that we may extend it to others

    Robin Hatcher
    I agree with Swindoll. The church needs a grace awakening. I loved this book. It spoke to my heart in several areas. I would recommend it to everyone. We need the reminder of what God's grace has been to us and what our grace can mean to others.

    Fred
    Classic readChuck Swindoll does a good job of defining grace in its different aspects. It prompted a lot of discussion in our men’s discipleship group as we read through it.

    Brenda Hunter
    Another excellent book on understanding God's grace!

    Frances
    God's grace, what it is, what it does and how to recognize it.

    Holly Stevenson
    Loved this! Highly recommend. Convicting and freedom inspiring read.

    Robert Vincent
    This book, in my opinion gives the best explanation of biblical grace; I’ve now read it four times. After reading many other books on the subject I find none to match. Chuck Swindoll masterfully guides the reader to an “awakening” of grace, therefore satisfying his purpose in writing. The grace of God is all-sufficient and is truly amazing. Swindoll states, with the authority of the Word of God that the believer in Jesus Christ is saved by grace and can victoriously live in God’s grace. [...]

    I picked up a used copy of this book a couple of years ago and tucked it away on a bookshelf. Fast forward to this year and I watch a video cast geared towards pastors with a "top ten" books list recommended to pastors. This was one of those books recommendedI moved it up the ladder on my "to read" list.Wow! Was I pleasantly surprised and challenged by this book! I think this is the first book (at least in a very long time) that I started reading and could not put it down until I was finished. R [...]

    This is my third or fourth re-read.

    It is marvelous study about grace. Swindoll teach us about it in the letter to the Romans. I was very blessing to reading it. Read you too.

    While Christian non-fiction tends to be my favorite genre, an audiobook of that genre feels like a very long sermon. Which is okay, but just needs to be taken in a little at a time. Which is why I took almost a week to get through this audiobook. I love Charles Swindoll’s books and have been making my way through his Great Lives series. This is the first book of his I’ve read (er, listened to) out of that series; he certainly has a lot to offer in the way of Biblical teaching!Swindoll shares [...]

    Probably the best book I've read to date on the subject of Grace. It will be especially helpful to those raised in a legalistic environment, where righteousness is an "earned" temporary state that comes from following a man-made checklist or rulebook of moralistic or socio-culturally enforced expectations. This type of Christianity is little more a modern version of the same Pharisees Jesus personally condemned and rebuked. It is a life dictated by the constant will-power driven avoidance and fe [...]

    Fred
    First, I should probably mention that my normal reading is along the lines of R.C. Sproul, Francis Schaeffer, John Piper, etc. So I'm used to pretty dense, challenging, "meaty" content. So with that qualification I suppose it should come as no surprise that I found Swindoll's light, vernacular style frustrating. Like others who have reviewed this book, the lack of depth, practical guidance, and clear scripture exposition was annoying. In general, this book reads more like a "Daily Bread" devotio [...]
