Thomas Nelson Releases YA Nonfiction and Inspirational Gift Book on Grace
We’ve all experienced it—that gut-wrenching moment when we realize we shouldn’t have said something so hurtful; we shouldn’t have ever been doing something so shameful. When we find ourselves in the throes of life’s muck, author Max Lucado offers this advice: “God answers the mess of life with one word: grace.” That life-altering grace is the subject of two new books in Lucado’s GRACE line; a full-color gift book, Grace Happens Here™ (Thomas Nelson, ISBN 978-104003-2038-7, September 11, 2012, $15.99), and a YA nonfiction book, Wild Grace (Tommy Nelson, ISBN 9781400320844, September 11, 2012, $14.99), adapted by James Lund.
Grace Happens Here is filled with inspiration that makes a wonderful addiction to gift baskets and even coffee table décor this holiday season. With beautifully stylized pages and text, the book is filled with inspiring stories, Scripture, and hope-filled quotes sure to invigorate the reader for a lifetime. Grace is a familiar topic to Lucado. In this book, not only does Max describe what grace is, but he describes what grace does.
“When grace happens, generosity happens. Unsquashable, eye-popping big heartedness happens,” says Max. “When you meet a bountiful person, you are standing where grace is happening.”
Wild Grace gives teens an understanding of how grace can change their lives in powerful ways, even when those lives seem messed up, off track, or in trouble. Each chapter describes another miracle that happens when teens allow God’s grace to work on them and through them.
“Grace is God’s decision to change everything,” explains Max. “Good-bye, earthly labels. Stupid. Unpopular. Ugly. Failure. No longer. You aren’t who they say you are. You are who He says you are. Spiritually alive. Connected to God. Amazing.”
While reading “Wild Grace,” teens will be convinced that God knew what He was doing when He made them and that His grace is always there, ready to work wonders that are bigger than anything this world has to offer.
“Wild Grace” is one in a series related products in Max Lucado’s new GRACE line releasing this fall from Thomas Nelson, including an adult trade book, a GRACE DVD-Based Conversation Kit, the full-color gift book “Grace Happens Here,” and a pass-along booklet called “Shaped by Grace.”
