My Thoughts
Amazing Grace as Christ Walks By is one of those books that tugs at your heart.  As you read along you start thinking, I’ve been there, that’s happened to me.  Filled with scripture this book lets the reader know that they are not alone and that they can reach out and lean on Jesus.  The author tells so very personal stories.  She tells of being raped and how she found God’s love through it.  She shows us her soul and then shows how God had been there all along even though she had not thought of it that way.  This book is full of lessons that  we can learn about God’s love for us in the most dire situation.  It is a book to be read slowly and digested just as slowly.  This is a book of encouragement.
