I knew that C.S. Lewis and I had more in common than our Christianity when he said, "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me." Welcome to a celebration of faith, tea, and the written word. I'm always engaged in a book, and whether it's one I'm reading or one of the inspirational historical romances I write, there's always a cup of tea close by. Join me in a cup as we chat about faith, our favorite books and the exciting places our reading and writing adventures take us.

Wild Grace by Max Lucado and James Lund

Wild Grace (What Happens when Grace Happens) is an adaptation for teenage readers by James Lund of Max Lucado's book Grace.

Wild Grace is suitable for kids with varying levels of knowledge of the Good News: whether a lot or a little, the message is powerful and understandable without being dumbed-down. The subject of grace is well-presented and soundly Biblical.

Others may shoot me for saying this, but most of Max Lucado's insights aren't new. They have been spoken by pastors and theologians for generations--but he has a way with delivery and offering fresh examples. In Wild Grace, the illustrations are about half-and-half Scripture and true tales of teens who've been in tough spots. There is also room to journal one's thoughts.

Even adults will be encouraged or instructed by the book, as I was, but if you're looking for a book to help drive home God's love for your teenager, this might be an one to try.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my review. A positive review was neither promised nor expected.
