Captured by Grace by Dr. David Jeremiah

It is very surprising that I had never read this book before. As an admirer of the extremely well spoken and scholarly Dr. Jeremiah, I find his teaching and writing very easy to comprehend as well as very applicable to my own life. Captured by Grace is no different.

Saul of Tarsus (Paul) was a Jewish scholar whose goal in life was to rid the planet of those professing to be Christians. John Newton was a slave trader. Though they were well aware of the Scriptures, they engaged in some of the most reproachable practices even to today's standards. Thought Paul (Saul) became one of the most prolific writers of the New Testament and Newton the author of one of the most beloved hymns "Amazing Grace" they had something deeper in common. Both men were touched by undeserved grace and therefore able to turn their lives around without the weight of guilt for their past lives. Captured by Grace drives home that none of us, no matter what we have done, are beyond the reach of grace and forgiveness.
