If I am not amazed by God’s grace, am I really tasting and savoring it, delighting in it? Delve with Dr. Ferguson into God’s Word and come away with a deeper astonishment at the lengths to which God’s grace has gone to save you.
We sing of God’s “Amazing Grace” in our hymns, but have we grown accustomed to its benefits? Have you meditated lately on what you, as a Christian, have experienced as a recipient of His grace? In this book, Sinclair Ferguson laments that “we have lost the joy and energy that is experienced when grace seems truly amazing.” In an effort to restore the wonder of Divine grace to our sight, he reflects on it from seven angles, each built around a stanza from a rich but little-known hymn, “O How the Grace of God Amazes Me”, composed by Emmanuel T. Sibomana (1915-1975), a pastor in the African nation of Burundi.
