Full Product Description
In Extraordinary Grace, Gary Chapman and Chris Fabry take stories directly from the Bible to give you a fresh understanding of an extraordinary God. By the transforming power of his grace, the authors show how God used the lives of ordinary people - despite their struggles, faults, foibles, sins and even minor triumphs - to fulfil His ultimate gift of grace: His son, Jesus.
Gary and Chris explore how it was that God, out of all the people He could have chosen for the long line of descendants leading ultimately to Jesus, that God chose the people that he did. He shows how it was that, despite all their wanderings and weaknesses, the one characteristic they shared - and the only one God required - was that they’d accept his gift of grace.
In three readable sections the writers assure that:
1) God is not mad at you.
2) God wants to lavish his love and blessings on you.
3) God wants you to reflect his grace to others.
Gary and Chris’s book is not an intellectual exercise, it’s not a deeply theological argument, it is purely and simply the truth in biblical example that God’s life transforming grace is there for you - and it’s yours now. And with that comes the biggest dare of all - daring you to take God at his word; dare to believe Him and dare to live in his extraordinary grace.
Extraordinary Grace by Chris Fabry; Gary Chapman was published by Moody in September 2013 and is our 37105th best seller. The ISBN for Extraordinary Grace is 9780802410795.

Appendix: Extraordinary Grace Study
From the Back Cover
God's extraordinary grace is hard to grasp-but made easier to understand through stories of God's people.
Gary Chapman and Chris Fabry search the Scriptures for examples of God's grace in the lives of those named in Jesus' lineage, but what they find are people with faults, foibles, and sins, just like the rest of us. So obviously, grace is not about doing everything exactly right. It is a gift . . . an astonishing gift given by God.
In Extraordinary Grace, you will hear the call of grace; laugh because of grace; apply grace; be overtaken by grace; and know the extraordinary grace that comes from loving Jesus.
Chapter studies, for individuals or groups, will help you to find examples of extraordinary grace reflected in the lineage of Jesus.
