The Grace Effect
Full Product Description
What does Christianity give us beyond televangelists, potlucks, and bad basketball leagues? Not much, according to the secular Left. The world, they say, would be a better place without it.
Historian and Christian apologist Larry Taunton has spent much of his career refuting just this sort of thinking, but when he encounters Sasha, a golden-haired Ukranian orphan girl whose life has been shaped by atheistic theorists, he discovers an unlikely champion for the transforming power of grace.
Through the narrative of Sashas redemption, we see the false promises of socialism; the soul-destroying influence of unbelief; and how a society cultivates its own demise when it rejects the ultimate source of grace. We see, in short, the kind of world the atheists would give us: a world without Christianity cold, pitiless, and graceless.
And yet, as Sasha shows us, it is a world that is not beyond the healing power of the grace effect. Occasionally infuriating, often amusing, but always inspiring, 'The Grace Effect' will have you cheering for the courageous little girl who shamed the academic elitists of our day.
The Grace Effect by Larry Alex Taunton was published by Thomas Nelson in November 2011 and is our 17101st best seller. The ISBN for The Grace Effect is 9781595554406.

The Grace EffectDiane Morrison, via The Good Book Stall
US Christian author and historian Larry Taunton is well known for his public debates with the likes of Richard Dawkins and the late Christopher Hitchens. He has always maintained that society is much the better for the Christian influence and that even in today’s largely secular climate, centuries of ingrained Christian mindset result in an altogether more humane existence.
In 2009 he had the chance to experience the difference for himself when the Taunton family travelled to the Ukraine – product of 75 years of atheistic Soviet conditioning – to adopt a young orphan girl they had met on a previous missionary trip. This is the story of what happened to them there. Without spoiling things for the reader it is fair to say that the trip abundantly proves his case. The writing style is easy but heartfelt as we accompany the family every tortuous step of the way, and the necessary detours into explanatory Ukrainian history are never too laboured or intrusive. Essential reading for anyone considering adoption from the former USSR or engaged in Christian apologetics, and a thought-provoking and rewarding real-life tale for everyone else.
