"The Way of Grace is an invitation to experience anew the grace and acceptance of Jesus. Our group was challenged and inspired to reexamine our own lives, and how we have both received and extended grace. The exercises took us to new depths in our spiritual journeys and for that we are all deeply grateful."

"The Way of Grace offered units from the Gospel of John that unfolded new truths before us on a weekly basis. There seems to be a growing wealth of understanding and insight in every new book offered in the series."
