Stumbling Into Grace~ A Book Review


Stumbling Into Grace Confessions of a Sometimes Spiritually Clumsy Woman

By Lisa Harper
Published by Thomas Nelson

Book Description

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.
My book review ~

Stumbling Into Grace by  Lisa Harper is like a devotional and a journal all in one.  Lisa shares humorous stories about her own life to help readers relate to a spiritual relationship with Christ.  At the end of each chapter their is a section of prayer, reflection and personal growth.  I believe this book would be great in a women's Sunday school class. 

Lisa shares personal humorous stories that I am certain many others can relate too.  Some of them will make you laugh out loud  as you read them.  As she stumbles through life she tells you about her life as a single woman and how she had different dreams, but this is what life dealt her.  She strongly believes that God has a plan for each of us, and she is on her path.  Lisa is a great speaker and freely shares the events in her life with her readers.

If you are looking for some spiritual inspiration this is a quick read that might do the trick.

I am giving this one a 3 out of 5, and I think it would be a great spiritual learning tool.
