This is a short, folksy interpretation of a cherished and crucial topic for Christians of all stripes - what is the grace of Christ and how do I receive it in my life? Brad Wilcox is a popular youth speaker in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He is intense and relatable, and his audiences love this about him. I don't find that his style resonates with me very well, though I do appreciate some of the insights that he shares in this book. His narrative style seems to be meant for a much younger audience. He seems to pack his writing with too much anecdotal content. Rather than going deep, he covers this subject with many (too many?) broad brush strokes, and thus the opportunity to really convey some important insights about the grace of Christ feels somewhat suffocated in the tangle of his colloquial references and jaunty turns-of-phrase. In the end, I found myself doubting that I understood what definition of grace he was trying to convey. Here are two nice thoughts that sum up his book for me.

"We do not need to achieve some minimum level of capacity or goodness before God will help--divine aid can be ours every hour of every day, no matter where we are in the path of obedience." -Elder D. Todd Christofferson

"It is Jesus Christ who helps us through His Atonement. Grace is the help His Atonement makes possible." -the author

WOW!
SO WISH I COULD JUST COPY THE WHOLE BOOK FOR YOU!

AMAZING insights!
WONDERFUL lessons!
BEAUTIFUL examples!

Being a Christian is more than just going to church on Sundays....it is a way of life.

"7-days a week, 52 weeks a year, and throughout all the years of your life."

Using personal stories Brad Wilcox shows us the ways we can increase our becoming more Christian... our becoming more like Christ.

Simple, yet sometimes hard, practices that will shape us into who we were meant to be.

Things like:
* Live life with a sense of urgency and a sense of integrity.
* Never check your religion at the door.
* Become trusting and happy like a child.
* Face your people fears.
* and MORE

I REALLY LOVED this idea:

"Just as the earth went through 7 days of creation, we must also go through 7 days of re-creation...a process of being formed, divided, enlightened, beautified, and filled with life."

It is time to take a stand!
Let this book help you become a 7-day Christian!
