The Grace Effect ~ Book Review

In all honesty I wasn't expecting to enjoy this book - much less to benefit from it spiritually and intellectually- But that's exactly what happened.

 "Simply defined, the 'grace effect' is an observable phenomenon—that life is demonstrably better where authentic Christianity flourishes." This is a direct quote from the author - who by the way, did an awesome job of giving us real life examples in his life, the life of his adopted daughter Sasha and the people of the very secular nation of her birth in Eastern Europe. You travel between this family's quest to bring a beautiful and fragile soul out of a cold and spiritually sterile world and how this country and it's people reached that point. The author affords you a layman's history lesson that explains the present day socio-economic foes, it's almost self-impost blindness to their own spiritual poverty, moral depravity and wide-spread corruption.

This is a great book for anyone wondering if a country devoid of religion is truly progressive. If atheism is the answer to our social problems. If tolerance on steroids is really just indifference justified. Perfect for young adults especially those on their way to college who need a load of assurance that Grace is an Awesome Gift. Read this book and then share it - it's so worth the time.
I was given this book for free by BookSneeze for a review.
