This is a timely reminder that the gospel is not only good news for the unbeliever, but also for the believer. Here we see the priority of God's grace – as seen, primarily, in Christ and His cross. The main sections deal, in practical ways, with grace remembered, received and reapplied, showing what it means to live by this grace, day by day.
Today, many Christians have a poor knowledge of the Bible, as well as Christian doctrine. This book has in mind those who have been converted for some time, but who need a fuller understanding of all that Christ has done. The writer is clear that we not only begin with the cross, but that we go on living, daily, in the power of that same cross. This is done in a thoroughly Biblical way, but also practically with helpful illustrations that, in equal measure, encourage and challenge.
Christopher Wright (Langham Partnership) observes that the book's title “is exactly right. There is no more important priority in the Christian life (in all of life, indeed) than the grace of God….it is a joy to recommend this book”.
