Impractical Grace {review & giveaway}

Winner: Comment #12

Impractical Grace JUST RELEASED!!

Impractical Grace
Impractical Grace by John Bushman

About the book:
Grace is being good to a person, loving a person," Bishop North clarified, "not because that's what they deserve, or earned with you, but because you love them and you want what's best for them. That is the love and grace God has shown us -impractical grace."


A COUPLE'S FAILING MARRIAGE, a family’s heartbreaking accident, and a woman’s excruciating childhood—these are just a few of the challenges confronting these individuals. But with struggle, patience and faith, they each discover that there’s no limit to God’s power to heal, strengthen, and transform.
PART TREATISE, PART NOVEL, Impractical Grace pulls you in as you learn with the characters how the grace of God and the grace we show one another really can change everything. Take part in these doctrinal insights to the Savior’s grace and love in this compelling novel full of true-to-life stories of hardship and hope.

You can also go to John Bushman's website to get a sneak peak of the first few pages of Impractical Grace!

My thoughts:

I loved this book!  I liked that it wasn't just a novel or just a discourse on Grace.  It was a great combination of both!  I learned a lot about "Impractical Grace" as the author puts it as I enjoyed the story.  For those who don't normally read novels (or pure doctrinal books) this is a great combination of both and will appeal to many readers!  If you are looking for a great book in your life to inspire you to change, forgive and love.... this is a great one!  You can find it on Amazon!  Enjoy!

John Bushman is also giving away a signed copy!
