The Grace Effect ~ A Book Review


I recently received a copy of The Grace Effect, a thought-provoking new book written by Larry Alex Taunton, the Founder and Executive Director of Fixed Point Foundation

The Grace Effect is a book about adoption…but it is not just about adoption.  It’s also about what Taunton learned through his family’s experience of adopting a young girl from the Ukraine.   It’s about what he learned about the grace effect, which Taunton defines as: “…an observable phenomenon –that life is demonstrably better where authentic Christianity flourishes” {p.22}

My Thoughts

This book has made me think more than any other book that I have read recently…really think. 

It made me think about adoption {something my husband and I have been considering for the past couple of years}, the current plight of orphans around the world and how my family and I can help them. 

It made me think about what the world would be like without Christianity…how my life {and my children’s} would be different if we did not live in a nation influenced by Christianity.

It made me think about how people are trying to change our nation from one based on Christian principles to one that does not acknowledge God.

The Grace Effect made me laugh, it made me feel angry and frustrated, it made me wipe tears from my eyes a number of times…it made me think.
