This book is different. It reaches its destination by a distinct path. Instead of the theological pathway, Mr. Bubna travels the curvy lanes of his own life. While that often doesn’t work, in this case since the subject is grace and he is blatantly transparent, it works. We see the depths of what God’s grace can pull us up from.
This book succeeds from two directions. First, you may not have been as big an idiot (his term) as he has, but the Lord’s grace has truly been epic. It overcame and reversed so much in his case–marital mistakes, financial mistakes, career mistakes, and a host of big, clear sins. You read and think, wow, God’s grace was big enough to handle it. Second, in that you and I have quite a bit of idiocy too if we are honest in our tabulations, we see His grace is big enough for us as well! Every believer urgently needs to see that glorious truth!
He went beyond his idiocy as well. Life handed him some other blows. Hard times, a Dad who failed him, his parent’s divorce, sexual abuse, health crisis for loved ones, and finally for himself all crossed his plate. He even traced grace from little dumb decisions that really weren’t sin, but were really dumb. You know, he is right– grace is epic.
I might not agree with every word he said, but the book is helpful. He writes in an engaging style and I found myself wanting to read on and so read the book pretty quickly. God’s grace is all it is said to be and more!
