The Beauty of Grace Book Review

I am eager to share with you what is one of my new favorite books for encouragement and inspiration.

The Beauty of Grace is your haven of calm contemplation amid the chaos. This inspiring collection includes stories of cultivating friendship, waiting on God, choosing joy, staying connected, learning to trust, and much more.“ (preceding comments taken directly from the book jacket)

Summary

The short and easy to read selections by some of my favorite writers online are a joy to read. Authors include Tsh Oxenreider, Holley Gerth, Jessica Turner, Emily Freeman, and Lisa-Jo Baker. Uplifting the spirit, these ladies remind us to look to God, and hold dear the everyday simple pleasures and beauty found in His grace.

The seven sections of the book focus each on a different aspect of life and contain a hand full of brief writings by several different authors. The varied topics make it easy to find something that speaks to your life situation, and the different authors lend their own personal voice and perspective.

My opinion

There is not much about this book I did not like. The stories were enjoyable, easy to read, and uplifting. Dawn Camp’s photography throughout the book was beautiful. I do wish the photographs had been in color, but somehow the black and white photography helped to focus the observer on the topic causing one to see things differently, maybe less distracted than if they had been color photographs.

This book warrants a place in the library of anyone seeking encouragement and reminders of God’s great grace. A daily or weekly reading in this book will breathe fresh air into what can be the hubbub, in and out, mundane, yet crazy, daily lives we all have.

  1. Thanks so much for information on this book. I have read Holley Gerth before and could definitely use quiet time amidst the chaos in my life. Especially during the Lenten season.
