In 1987, an IRA bomb buried Gordon Wilson and his twenty-year-old daughter beneath five feet of rubble. Gordon alone survived. And forgave. He said of the bombers, I have lost my daughter, but I bear no grudge. . . . I shall pray, tonight and every night, that God will forgive them.His words caught the medias ear--and out of one mans grief, the world got a glimpse of grace.Grace is the churchs great distinctive.

Its the one thing the world cannot duplicate, and the one thing it craves above all else--for only grace can bring hope and transformation to a jaded world.In Whats So Amazing About Grace?

award-winning author Philip Yancey explores grace at street level. If grace is Gods love for the undeserving, he asks, then what does it look like in action? And if Christians are its sole dispensers, then how are we doing at lavishing grace on a world that knows far more of cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy?Yancey sets grace in the midst of lifes stark images, tests its mettle against horrific ungrace. Can grace survive in the midst of such atrocities as the Nazi holocaust?

Can it triumph over the brutality of the Ku Klux Klan? Should any grace at all be shown to the likes of Jeffrey Dahmer, who killed and cannibalized seventeen young men?Grace does not excuse sin, says Yancey, but it treasures the sinner.

True grace is shocking, scandalous. It shakes our conventions with its insistence on getting close to sinners and touching them with mercy and hope. It forgives the unfaithful spouse, the racist, the child abuser. It loves todays AIDS-ridden addict as much as the tax collector of Jesus day.In his most personal and provocative book ever, Yancey offers compelling, true portraits of graces life-changing power.

He searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. He asks, How can Christians contend graciously with moral issues that threaten all they hold dear?And he challenges us to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know, Whats So Amazing About Grace?But I shall send it to-night.

" "At three o'clock in the morning?" "I mean later, in the course of the day. " "Very good. You still wish then to marry her?" "Very much indeed. " "Aren't you afraid that you'll bore her?" And as her companion stared at this enquiry Isabel added: "If she can't dance with you for half an hour how will she be able to dance with you for life?" "Ah," said Lord Warburton readily, "I'll let her dance with other people.

About the cotillion, the fact is I thought that you-that you-" "That I would do it with you. I told you I'd do nothing. " "Exactly; so that while it's going on I might find some quiet corner where we may sit down and talk. " "Oh," said Isabel gravely, "you're much too considerate of me. " When the cotillion came Pansy was found to have engaged herself, thinking, in perfect humility, that Lord Warburton had no intentions.

Isabel recommended him to seek another partner, but he assured her that he would dance with no one but herself. As, however, she had, in spite of the remonstrances of her hostess, declined other invitations on the ground that she was not dancing at all, it was not possible for her to make What's So Amazing About Grace? exception in Lord Warburton's favour.

"After all I don't care to dance," he said; "it's a barbarous amusement: I'd much rather talk. " And he intimated that he had discovered exactly the corner he had been looking for-a quiet nook in one of the smaller rooms, where the music would come to them faintly and not interfere with conversation. Isabel had decided to let him What's So Amazing About Grace? out his idea; she wished to be satisfied.

She wandered away from the ball-room with him, though she knew her husband desired she should not lose sight of his daughter. It was with his daughter's pretendant, however; that would make it right for Osmond.

On What's So Amazing About Grace? way out of the ball-room she came upon Edward Rosier, who was standing in a doorway, with folded arms, looking at the dance in the attitude of a young man without illusions. She stopped a moment and asked him if he were not dancing. "Certainly not, if I can't dance with her!" he answered.

"You had better go away then," said Isabel with the manner of good counsel. "I shall not go till she does!" And he let Lord Warburton pass without giving him a look. This nobleman, however, had noticed the melancholy youth, and he asked Isabel who her dismal What's So Amazing About Grace? was, remarking that he had seen him somewhere before. "It's the young man I've told you about, who's in love with Pansy. " "Ah yes, I remember.

He looks rather bad. " "He has reason. My husband won't listen to him. What's So Amazing About Grace? "What's the matter with him?" Lord Warburton enquired. "He seems very harmless. " "He hasn't money enough, and he isn't very clever.
