In By Grace Alone: How the Grace of God Amazes Me, Dr Sinclair B. Ferguson laments that we have lost the joy and energy that is experienced when grace seems truly 'amazing.' In an effort to restore the wonder of diving grace, he reflects on it from seven angles, each built around a stanza from a rich but little known hymn, 'O How the Grace of God Amazes Me,' written by Emmanuel T. Sibomana (ca. 1915-1975), a pastor in the African nation of Burundi.
This book poses probing questions for today's believer: 'If I am not saved by God's grace, can I really be living in it? Can I really be tasting, and savoring, and delighting in it?' But those willing to delve into God's Word with Dr. Ferguson will come away with a deeper astonishment at the depths of God's grace.
