Grace Is Greater: Interview with Kyle Idleman
Teaching pastor and best-selling author Kyle Idleman has just released his latest book, Grace is Greater. The book develops key themes through the use of teaching and storytelling including experiencing grace in your darkest moments and forgiveness given, received and extended. Not only do we need grace ourselves, everyone of us, we need to give it to others, and together create a place where others can as well. We had a chance to talk with Kyle about the book, how grace is changing lives, and hangups in the believer's life preventing forgiveness from flowing. We discussed the truth that grace can conquer all and cover all sin and the importance of living this out in the context of community of believers.
Idleman believes the word grace has become all too familiar in the church world and it's a truth that needs to be experienced by every believer. "Grace is best and most fully understood not by way of explanation alone, but through experience," write Idleman. "The greatness of God's grace is compelling when explained, but it's irrestible when it's experienced."
In, Grace is Greater, Idleman uses the power of stories to capture reader's attention in understanding grace and its ability to flow from between a community of people and reveal the goodness of God. Grace is Greater is about taking readers on a journey to receive, give and discover grace.
The truth is God's grace is bigger than your hangups, history, scars, and relationships gone bad, now it's time to let it change your heart. Idleman writes, "It's my prayer that you won't miss grace, but that you will powerfully experience the grace effect in your life and that no matter what you have done, no matter what has been done to you, you will personally experience the truth that grace is greater."
