About

"By the end of this book you will see grace in a new light; you will see your loving God in a new light. Read it and be encouraged."--Max Lucado, author of GRACE and In the Grip of Grace


No sin is so great, no bitterness so deep that God's grace cannot transform the heart and rewrite the story. But grace is so hard for us to understand.

It doesn't make sense.
It's not fair.
It can't possibly cover over what I've done.

Perhaps nothing is as difficult to explain as God's grace. The best way--perhaps the only real way--to understand it is to experience it.

In Grace Is Greater, bestselling author and pastor Kyle Idleman leads us past our hang-ups toward an understanding of grace that is bigger than our mistakes, our failures, our desire for revenge, and our seemingly impossible situations. Through powerful stories of grace experienced, this book will help you truly grasp God's grace . . . even if the Christians around you have failed to live it.

Endorsements

"Kyle Idleman is never boring. He never lulls. Just the opposite. Kyle always stirs, excites, and challenges. By the end of this book you will see grace in a new light; you will see your loving God in a new light. Read it and be encouraged."

Max Lucado, author of GRACE and In the Grip of Grace

"Grace is my favorite topic, and Kyle Idleman's new book breathes fresh life into it through engaging stories and winsome insights. Nothing is greater than grace. Celebrate it, live it, share it!"

Lee Strobel, award-winning author of The Case for Grace

"Kyle Idleman is a remarkable writer. As he opens his heart and God's Word, he shares stories that are both moving and meaningful and confesses his own weaknesses with stunning transparency. He also has a wry sense of humor, which enhances and never detracts from the important lessons he offers. Grace Is Greater is practical and inspirational, providing a clear path to freedom through God's amazing gift of grace. I loved it!"

Liz Curtis Higgs, bestselling author of Bad Girls of the Bible

"Kyle Idleman's books never cease to inspire me. He writes with boldness, communicating biblical truth in a fresh and convicting way! Kyle challenges us to not just experience grace but to make sure no one we come in contact with misses the grace of God. His witty, straightforward wisdom will motivate and encourage you to live a life worthy of your calling. I highly recommend it!"

Chip Ingram, author of Grace: Experiencing God's Generosity

"As a follower of Jesus, I can't help but being a fan of Kyle Idleman. He seems to eat, sleep, and breathe a passion for heart-connection with God. That kind of a relationship can't happen when we confine God's grace to the work he did to save us. It happens when we allow his grace to permeate the messiest parts of our lives and ultimately become the defining feature of how we treat others. Kyle's book Grace Is Greater is a journey in how to make that happen."

Dr. Tim Kimmel, author of Grace Based Parenting and Grace Filled Marriage

"If Kyle Idleman writes something, I read it! I sat down to read Grace Is Greater and couldn't put it down. His teaching on grace challenged me. The way God is presented comforted me. The words that describe people inspired me! I'm different and better because of this book . . . and you will be too."

Caleb Kaltenbach, author of Messy Grace

"Kyle has a way of communicating grace that invites all people to partake. In Grace Is Greater, you will be challenged to receive God's love and mercy daily, and freely give it to others. From the first page to the last, you will see that grace is truly greater than anything and everything else."

Mark Batterson, lover of God's grace and New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker

"When I was sent the manuscript for Grace Is Greater, I thought, Oh no, not another book on grace! I quickly checked my little library and discovered that I already had at least eight books whose titles included the word grace. I asked myself, Do I need another one? But I began to read and was immediately drawn in by Kyle Idleman's engaging stories, delightful humor, compelling truths, and, yes, grace. I laughed out loud and shed a few tears as I was reminded in fresh ways of the all-encompassing greatness, power, and relevance of God's grace for the brokenness, disappointments, and hurts we all encounter on our journey. After reading Grace Is Greater, I decided the answer to my question was, Yes, I do need another book on grace. I think we all do."

Cynthia Heald, author of Becoming a Woman of Grace

"Kyle cuts through all the nonsense and takes us straight to what is most important spiritually."

Jud Wilhite, author of Uncensored Grace

"Unlike the quacks-like-a-duck test, just because a book talks about grace doesn't mean it knows grace. Fortunately for us, Kyle Idleman's Grace Is Greater both talks and knows grace. Read this for yourself. Then share it with someone, no strings attached, just like grace."

John D. Blase, poet and author of All Is Grace (with Brennan Manning)

"Grace Is Greater is a beautiful narrative encapsulating not just the beauty and sanctity of God's grace, but the way his grace finds us and meets us at the foot of the mountains we all face, the way it pulls us up, cleanses us so thoroughly, and invites us into the incredible arms of forgiveness. Grace Is Greater is an invitation to delve into your own spirit; let go of the worries, regrets, and assumptions that are holding you captive; and fully receive God's love on its most basic and wildly profound levels."

Emily Ley, author of Grace, Not Perfection

"Kyle has a way with words; when his pen touches paper, God uses him to stir our souls and expand our imagination. In Grace Is Greater, you will learn that God's grace is greater than your mistakes, your hurts, and your circumstances. You are going to love this book."

Derwin Gray, author of Crazy Grace for Crazy Times

"If you're tired of running away from your mistakes, your hurts, and your circumstances, read this book. With spot-on biblical truth, riveting stories, and poignant applications, Kyle Idleman will lead you to the grace place. As you personally apply the truths in Grace Is Greater, you'll find yourself chased by grace and embraced by God. Buy one copy for yourself and ten more to give away!"

Carol Kent, author of Between a Rock and a Grace Place
