In 1987, an IRA bomb buried Gordon Wilson and his twenty-year-old daughter beneath five feet of rubble. Gordon alone survived. And forgave. He said of the bombers, ' I have lost my daughter, but I bear no grudge . . . I shall pray, tonight and every night, that God will forgive them.' His words caught the media's ears -- and out of one man's grief, the world got a glimpse of grace. Grace is the church's great distinctive. It's the one thing the world cannot duplicate, and the one thing it craves above all else -- for only grace can bring hope and transformation to a jaded world. In What's So Amazing About Grace? award-winning author Philip Yancey explores grace at street level. If grace is God's love for the undeserving, he asks, then what does it look like in action? And if Christians are its sole dispensers, then how are we doing at lavishing grace on a world that knows far more of cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy? Yancey sets grace in the midst of life's stark images, tests its mettle against horrific 'ungrace.' Can grace survive in the midst of such atrocities as the Nazi holocaust? Can it triumph over the brutality of the Ku Klux Klan? Should any grace at all be shown to the likes of Jeffrey Dahmer, who killed and cannibalized seventeen young men? Grace does not excuse sin, says Yancey, but it treasures the sinner. True grace is shocking, scandalous. It shakes our conventions with its insistence on getting close to sinners and touching them with mercy and hope. It forgives the unfaithful spouse, the racist, the child abuser. It loves today's AIDS-ridden addict as much as the tax collector of Jesus' day. In his most personal and provocative book ever, Yancey offers compelling, true portraits of grace's life-changing power. He searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. He asks, How can Christians contend graciously with moral issues that threaten all they hold dear? And he challenges us to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know, What's So Amazing About Grace?



  • This book makes a compelling case for the idea that if Grace were embraced and bestowed upon others without restrictions, it would undoubtedly have a positive impact on all of our lives.
  • The illustrations in this book are fantastic and the author does a great job incorporating real people and their personal stories. It's also fascinating how the book connects the teachings from Hebrews to our modern world. I want to express my gratitude and wish blessings from above. Steve.
  • I just wanted to give a shoutout to Mr. Yanet for penning this incredible book and sharing his stories and insights on the power of grace. It's a must-read for Christians worldwide, as it encourages us to extend grace to every person we encounter in our lives. Let's embrace this beautiful concept and put it into action!
  • I devoured this book when it first came out in print. It was perfect timing as we were just leaving a legalistic, graceless, and abusive church that ironically had "Grace" in its name. Reading it felt like gulping down a refreshing glass of water in the midst of a desert. One of our adult kids who had been deeply hurt also found solace in re-reading it annually. Since I now have friends who recently escaped from another performance-based church, I decided it was time to revisit this book. I had two unused service credits, so I opted to listen to the audiobook this time. And let me tell you, it's still amazing! Although I feel it loses a bit of momentum in the middle, the first and last six chapters are incredibly insightful and helpful. As some other reviewers have mentioned, the audio editing leaves much to be desired. There are a plethora of distracting mouth, throat, and nose noises, as well as lines that were bumbled and followed by clumsy do-overs. It's unfortunate that the editing wasn't done properly. However, the message of the book, which encourages us to have "Grace on tap" for others, actually helped me extend grace towards the narrator, the editor, and the production team. I reminded myself that it's no different than all those times I would read aloud to my kids and husband over the years, often unintentionally slurring and mumbling as I dozed off. In a way, it became a humorous reminder for me to extend grace in the areas where I've needed it myself!
  • I recently became a Christian and let me tell you, this book is mind-blowing. If you're looking to encounter the real Jesus that tends to get overshadowed by all the religious stuff, trust me, you absolutely need to get your hands on this book.
  • I just finished listening to "What's So Amazing About Grace?" by Philip Yancey and let me tell you, it won't be my last audio book by him. The narration was top-notch, clear, and easy to follow, unlike some audio books that have annoying volume fluctuations. I can't wait to explore more works by this author!
