Captured by Grace by Dr. David Jeremiah

Captured by Grace is a nonfiction book about...well you could probably guess...grace!  lol.  Dr. Jeremiah follows the life of John Newton (famous for penning the hymn "Amazing Grace") and Saul/Paul of the Bible to show the effect God's grace had on them.  He really takes a good look at grace; the purpose, where it appears in the Bible, and what it means for us.

This book had a lot of good content, but it was hard for me to get through.  I wish he would have gone further into the story of John Newton.  I did enjoy the comparisons of his life and Paul's and how while their situations were different they were alike in many ways.
