The Grace Effect . . . I'm Giving One Away!

The Grace Effect: How the Power of One Life Can Reverse the Corruption of Unbelief

By - Larry Alex Taunton
Publisher - Thomas Nelson

I am so delighted for the opportunity to share an amazing story with you! A story which literally show how the "Grace Effect" has the power to heal and save us! 'Simply defined, the ‘grace effect’ is an observable phenomenon — showing life is demonstrably better where authentic Christianity flourishes.' What does Christianity give us beyond televangelists, potlucks, and bad basketball leagues?  Not much, according to the secular Left. The world, they say, would be a better place without it. Historian and Christian apologist Larry Taunton has spent much of his career refuting just this sort of thinking, but when he encounters Sasha, a golden-haired orphan girl whose life has been shaped by atheistic theorists, he discovers an unlikely champion for the transforming power of grace. Through the narrative of Sasha’s redemption, we see the false promises of socialism; the soul-destroying influence of unbelief; and how a society cultivates its own demise when it rejects the ultimate source of grace.  We see, in short, the kind of world the atheists would give us: a world without Christianity—cold, pitiless, and gracelessAnd yet, as Sasha shows us, it is a world that is not beyond the healing power of 'the grace effect.'  Occasionally infuriating, often amusing, but always inspiring, The Grace Effect will have you cheering for the courageous little girl who shamed the academic elitists of our day."

This powerful, true account is one which will have you cheering and crying along with the Taunton family. It will help you better understand what it is faith in God brings to our lives and to the world around us . . . Grace! This grace is so taken for granted here in America, but in other places around the world where they have worked to remove all traces of God and His grace from their lives, it is starkly evident what they are missing. 

Read this book. Use the discussion questions in the back to help you understand how the "lack of Biblical Christianity cripples a nation and it's future" and why "Christianity should be a primary influence in a society". In this day and age with an ever growing push for communism and atheism, we need books like this to help us think though and understand the "Grace Effect" and why we all need it!
