From Good to Grace

From Good to Grace

Letting Go of the Goodness Gospel

by Christine Hoover
Publisher: Baker Books
Trade Paperback, 224 pages
Price: $14.99

So many of us feel as if we do not do enough and, in fact, are not enough. We try hard to be good—a good friend, mom, wife, Christian, employee, or ministry leader—hoping for that "atta-girl" from God, some heavenly assertion that we matter. In the process, we find ourselves living by a lesser gospel: the gospel of goodness. It's a gospel without grace, and in the end, it's good for nothing.

With compelling illustrations from her own life and from Scripture, Christine Hoover helps you start asking, "What does God want for me?" before asking, "What does God want from me?" You'll find yourself breathing a sigh of relief at this powerful message of freedom and hope. Rather than serving God out of obligation or duty, you'll be compelled to love and serve God with great joy.
