Book Review: Stumbling Into Grace

Stumbling Into Grace
Confessions of a Sometimes Spiritually Clumsy Woman
Lisa Harper

I loved this book and at the same time I didn't really care for it. At times I thought she was sincerely funny and at other times it felt as if she was trying to hard. So I am in the middle on this one.

Lisa hits on a lot of subjects that women struggle with in their faith. Guilt, shame and hypocrisy. I thought she had wonderful stories to go along with each subject. I love the personal reflection/group discussion section at the end of each chapter. I love that it is set up to either read to yourself or do with a group!

But my favorite part of the book was the conclusion and the story of Lori. How God really came in and saved her in a way most people wouldn't see as God. I also love how she encourages people not to give in to Satan when he tries to convince us it's time to wave the white flag.

I would recommend this book. I am still not sure if I am extremely excited about it or not. Still trying to figure out how I feel about her humor. Perhaps I will find out in October when I see her at Women of Faith.

I received this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review.
