  1. I like the looks of “Free of Charge”–I just read Yancey’s “What’s so Amazing About Grace?”, and pondering God’s grace is so perspective-altering and all around good for me.

    1. I’m loving “Free of Charge” it’s full of juicy nuggets of thought-provoking goodness. I have not read “What’s so Amazing About Grace?” but have heard it is a great one. I’ll just add it to the list! So many books – so little time!!!

    2. I have been reading Grace for quite some time now…slowly, not consistently. It is a lot to digest.Great book with lots to contemplate
