By Grace Alone *Review*

I received By Grace Alone by Derek Prince from Chosen Books to review. I loved it. I did feel that there were a couple of things in the book I didn't necessarily agree with Prince about, but overall I feel this is the best description of grace versus law that I have read. I think it is hard for many Christians to accept the idea of grace. We are always trying to earn God's love. Prince makes a powerful statement throughout his teachings in this book that the point of grace is that we cannot earn it. And when we do try to earn it, we are putting ourselves back under the Law.

I loved this book. The things I disagreed with Prince about were not significant issues, so I would still highly recommend this book to Christians who struggle with trying to earn God's love.

The way that Prince separates the chapters is perfect. You aren't overloaded with information and he spells everything out so it is easy to understand. He uses scripture to back up his points and brings to light things which you could easily overlook just reading the verse alone.

As I said, I highly recommend this book and will keep it so I can reference it as needed in the future.

Thank you to Chosen Books and Bethany House for a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
