Epic Grace by Kurt W. Bubna


God never wastes anything--our strengths, our successes, or our mistakes. In this collection of true stories, Kurt Bubna, a self-confessed "recovering idiot," chronicles his own honest, heartfelt, and often hilarious missteps along the path to grace. You'll discover what it means to experience the "unconditional" love of God, regardless of how often you stumble, and you'll gain a fresh view of how to find God's purpose for your life. Learn from Kurt's trials and triumphs that God is indeed the God of second chances--and His epic grace can transform even the most imperfect life into something priceless. (publisher's description)

Epic Grace: Chronicles of a Recovering Idiot is a title I just could not resist, and I am glad I did not. I have a long way to go on my road to recovery and it was good to know that there are others on the same journey. This is one of those books I did not want to put down once I started reading it. Bubna's stories of failures and struggles resonated with instances in my own life and were a good reminder of the grace God extends to each of us. There is nothing we do to deserve it, but He loves us enough to grant it anyway. Written in a humorous, self-deprecating style that I love, there is also a raw honesty that helped to put a soothing balm on some of my own wounds I continue to reopen. I have gone through some of the same things that Bubna has and, through this book, I have remembered the grace God extended to me and am reminded that God will use the shattered portions of my life. 

Tyndale House Publishers provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes. No expectation were made for a good review and all opinions are my own.
