“Simply defined, the ‘grace effect’ is an observable phenomenon—that life is demonstrably better where authentic Christianity flourishes.”

The Grace Effect,is a powerful and moving story that proves that life is demonstrably better where authentic Christianity flourishes. What does Christianity give us beyond televangelist, potlucks and bad basketball leagues? Not much, according to the secular Left.  The world, they say, would be a better place without it. This is the type of thinking that Larry Taunton has spent much of his career refuting. When he met Sasha, a golden-haired 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 Sasha’s 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 bu always inspiring, The Grace Effect will have you cheering for the courageous little girl who shamed the academic elitists of our day.

This is a short video from Larry Taunton himself.

MY OPINION

This book is a very moving and powerful story. I brought about all sorts of emotions from reading about the delay tactics and bribery the Tauntons and others dealt with whilst trying to adopt children as well as the deplorable living conditions the children lived with. It was tear jerking reading about the facilities Sasha and the others had no choice but to use, what they lived without, being fed rotten food, the bad language and lack of any type of regulations or repercussions for bad behavior. The story also put a smile on my face as it spoke of the smile on her face and the wonder and amazement in her eyes as she experienced such basic things in life we all take for granted and how she could and would put away masses of food when she was able to dine with the Tauntons. I give this book two thumbs up and 5 stars. I love reading about underdogs that rise and shine! Please enter below for your chance to own and read this book. It’s an easy Rafflecopter form.
