>I have just finished the book entitled Captured by Grace: No One Is Beyond the Reach of a Loving God by David Jeremiah. The authors preaching style and tone are reflected in the book as he captures the essence of the lyrical portion of the song entitled Amazing Grace. The life of John Newton a slave ship captain is juxtaposed with the Apostle Paul to bring draw attention to the nature of a loving God pursuing mankind wherever their toil may be.
The book is a simple read, drenched with scripture and solid illustrations to support Jeremiah’s point that God faithfully pursued John Newton and Paul with grace. And once they are caught, they no longer kick against the goads of life. They are left to do the things that God called them to do. Do you hear someone over your shoulder? Catch a glimpse of someone out of the corner of your eye? Perhaps you will find out who it is in this book.
