Captured by Grace by Dr. David Jeremiah

Thomas Nelson Publishing

Have you ever sat in church, and wondered about the songwriters of the songs that are sung many Sundays? Amazing Grace, a song I've heard since childhood, and still love, but I'd never really thought much about the writer of the lyrics, or how those lyrics actually came about. John Newton lived a life that you'd never expect, of someone who would write such a song.

The author explains Grace in terms even a new Christian can understand, and I feel it is a book that should be kept, and reread, whenever you feel down or as if you aren't quite good enough. I also feel that this is a book that should be shared, and discussed, because I feel that everyone will understand parts of it differently.

I recieved a copy of this book from Booksneeze to read and review. No other compensation was given. All opinions expressed here are my own.

I have thought about that sometimes, Jettie. This is another book I would probably read. It's one of my favorites too...and I like it best when my daughter sings it...she still sounds like a sweet young angel. Diana
