Book Review - Victim of Grace


Robin Jones Gunn reveals poignant truths from her life as well as from the lives of women in the Bible as she flips the notion that we are at the mercy of circumstances. She asks, what if God has dreams for you? What if he is accomplishing those dreams in the midst of shattered hopes?

When life doesn’t go as expected, it’s easy to feel like a victim. We look at the events that have gone wrong and view our lives as impaired. What if we could see our future as God sees it? Would our view radically change if we understood we are indeed victims rather than of happenstance?

God, the Relentless Lover, has vigorously sought you. He has instilled dreams in your heart that are grander than you can imagine. But the route to their fulfillment often is through a path you wouldn't seek.

What if God wants to take the hopes that tug at your heart and enliven them? Are you ready to live inside the mysterious joy of being a victim of grace?


This book is so incredibly uplifting and makes you feel joyous for the journey that you're on. It may not be the journey you thought you'd have (when is it ever?) but we can find joy through the grace that God shows us. 

Robin is so open and honest and shares from her heart. I love a book like this because it makes it easier for me to relate to and it also makes it easier to read. It is like sitting down with your best friend and having her share her life with you and then show you how the Lord has worked everything out for good. 

Be sure and have your tissues handy because, if you are like me, you're going to be shedding quite a few tears at some points of this book. It just touched my heart so much! 

This book will bless you so much. It's a book of hope and points totally to the grace of God. It's a must read and one you'll go back to time and again. I highly recommend it!
