Try it Tuesday & Review {Giveaway}

Happy New Year Everyone!
I'm finally back from California and it was a really nice vacation.
 
This week for
"Try it Tuesday & Review,"
 
 I had the opportunity of reading
The Grace Effect: How the Power of One Life Can Reverse the Corruption of Unbelief.
The website for the Fixed Point Foundation is found {HERE}.
 
 
 
This book was remarkable! It was a story about a family that adopted a girl named Sasha from the Ukraine. It wasn't a simple task either. They went through a long process and had many struggles. Although the family went through many trials, it was amazing to read. It was easy to read and I found that I didn't want to put it down. Sasha simply drew me in. Wonderful book!
 
About The Grace Effect:

"Simply defined, the ‘grace effect’ is an observable phenomenon—that 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 graceless.

And 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.


And one of my readers will receive their own copy of The Grace Effect. Wahoo!
