The Grace Effect Review & Giveaway - Closed

The Grace Effect
The winner is #3. I will contact you via email.
 I received the best book in the mail to review called "The Grace Effect." It's all about how the power of God can overcome anything and anyone in this world. This book shows you what the world would or does look like without Christianity. There were parts of the book that made me really mad and sad but in the end the book was extremely enlightening. This is a powerful book to say the least. It is a great read that I would recommend to anyone who believes or does not believe in God.

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.” (from fixed-point.org)
