Captured by Grace: A Review

 Captured By Grace: No One is Beyond the Reach of a Loving God

Dr. David Jeremiah’s Captured by Grace intertwines the lives of the Apostle Paul and John Newton, a former slave-trader and the author of the famous hymn, Amazing Grace. Two very different men were on a path of their own making, until the Lord stepped in and showered His grace on their lives and in their hearts. Before committing their lives to Christ, Paul and John Newton had lived as hunters. But they came to realized that they themselves were being hunted…pursued actively by the God of the Universe.

Beginning with initial salvation, Dr. Jeremiah helps readers to see how grace first steps into our lives, and continues to change us during our faith journey. He even includes a Moments of Grace section at the end of each chapter, in order to remind readers of what they’ve just read, and to help them apply it to their daily lives.

This book would be a wonderful gift to a new believer. I think, more than anything, Dr. Jeremiah’s words prove that there is no one outside of the reach of God’s grace. It is this grace that transformed Paul, a persecutor of Christians, into a follower of Jesus Christ. That said, I’ve been a Christian for going on ten years, and I was very moved by this book. It never hurts to be reminded that all of us, whether we’ve been saved 5 minutes or living for Christ for upwards of fifty years, are saved only because of the grace of a loving God.
