stumbling into grace... a book review


"Humorous yet poignant stories from Lisa's life help readers relate to spiritual truths found in the life and ministry of Christ.

Stumbling Into Grace is the diary-devotional of one woman's honest, ongoing, bumbling journey of faith and how she finds encouragement through a deeper understanding of Christ's time on earth. Within each chapter she alternates her often humorous memoir with stirring portraits of Jesus and his own encounters as recorded in the New Testament.

Both intimately relevant and refreshingly inspirational, this book will help readers to jettison the theological misconceptions, guilt, shame, and hypocrisy they struggle with, exchanging them for a vibrant, passionate relationship with Christ that results in a more abundant, joyful life."  ~  book description from the publisher

Stumbling into Grace by Lisa Harper is written as a diary as she delves deeper into God's Word for herself.  She covers such personal topics as forgiveness, rest, contentment, gratefulness, and more.  She brings Bible teaching to a level we all can understand. 

I really needed to hear the sections on "Rest" and "Contentment"... both of which I struggle with.  Thanks Lisa for such a timely reminder!  Oh, don't you just love the cover of the book!

My rating:  3.5 out of 5 stars

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers and Booksneeze for my honest review.

At the Women of Faith Imagine conference August 2011, I had the honor of meeting Lisa Harper and talking with her.  She is authentic, fun, and tall!
