Craving Grace

Lisa Velthouse

$18.99

Hardback
Also Available In
For Lisa Velthouse's whole life, Christianity had been about getting things right. Obeying her parents. Not drinking. Not cursing. Not having premarital sex. Vowing to save her first kiss until she got engaged, even writing a book called ...well, Saving My First Kiss. (This, it turns out, does not actually help a girl get a date.) Yet after two decades of trying to earn God's okay, she found her faith was lonely, empty, and unsatisfying. So she turned to more discipline, of course: fasting! By giving up her favorite foods - sweets - Lisa hoped to somehow discover true sweetness and meaning in her relationship with God. Until, one night at a wedding, she denied herself the cake but failed in such a different, unexpected, and world-rocking way that it challenged everything she thought she knew about God and herself. Craving Grace is the true story of a faith dramatically changed: how in one woman's life God used a bitter heart, a broken promise, and the sweetness of honey to reveal the stunning wonder that is grace.

Meaningful but Disjointed
3 stars By Miss Encyclopaedia, Oct 23 2012
'Craving Grace' contained several truly poignant, relatable memoirs about God's grace, delivered with wit and sincerity. However, the book's lack of chronological and thematic structure made it a little frustrating to read at times. It simply didn't flow from chapter to chapter and some chapters didn't seem to have any kind of message at all. Overall, the book is a conglomeration of somewhat relevant recollections with occasional moments of genuine brilliance.
