Last year, when I found myself on the floor of my closet, wrestling with God, was the first time grace became truly real to me. Grace is the thing that makes me weep. Regularly.
I can’t help it. I am overcome every time I hear stories about God’s grace and goodness, whether it be on TV, or in person. I love grace. I am thankful for grace–I can not get enough of it.
So when Kurt Bubna said he was looking for people to review his new book, Epic Grace, I jumped at the opportunity. I could not wait to get my hands on this book. The title alone intrigued me, but when I heard that Kurt was reverse tithing the proceeds of his book sales, I knew I needed to read this book and discover the message that Kurt so faithfully wanted to share.
The only mistake I made was trying to read Epic Grace while running on the treadmill. (And yes, I can read while running because I am s l o w .) I am so glad I was in my basement and not at the gym. Just a few pages in, I burst into tears over the story Kurt shared about the loss of his grandchild. There I am, running along, sobbing and sniffling my way through that last mile.
This book gripped me from the start and I have both laughed and cried my way through it. Kurt’s stories are relatable, tender, funny, honest and beautiful–even the painful ones. God has poured out His grace in Kurt’s life and the beauty of it is, that this same “epic grace” is also offered to us.
I can’t say enough good things about Kurt’s book. Buy it and read it. You will be blessed.
