Grace--it's a stained-glass, impersonal word until it happens to you . . .
Until you have been broken beyond belief and need a miracle for your soul. Until you have betrayed a loved one and cannot bring him back. Until you have befriended every darkness and are desperate for the light.That's when God's relentless, amazing, very personalized grace finds you.
It reached a slave trader onboard a ship raiding Africa's coast in March 1748. He later gave the world its most beloved hymn.
It struck the Christian church's most treacherous enemy on a Damascus road in AD 45, and he became the gospel's greatest messenger.
And it can free you too . . . of any shameful memory, open wound, unthinking mistake, or willful choice.
Encountering God's grace changes lives forever. Let Dr. David Jeremiah show you how the transforming mercy that captured songwriter John Newton and the apostle Paul can awaken within you a fresh experience of the God who loves you fearlessly and pursues you with abandon.

"Captured by Grace: No One Is Beyond the Reach of a Loving God" Reviews
I cannot help remembering the day a group of teenagers were throwing rocks at my house over the back fence and broke a window. For them it was a game; when the police came they thought they would go to jail. Instead, I dropped the charges on the condition that each one read a copy of this book which I gave them (I had copies to give away) Indeed, I do know that shortly after one of the boys upon completing the book asked for a Bible. God can do miraculous things when we understand grace
Amazing Grace would always be my song of praise,for it was grace that bought my liberty! This is a outstanding book about the Grace of God and the love that he shows people in their grace walk. This has taught me many things about my own walk with Christ, it has taught me to be patient and wait on the blessings on God, God loves us unconditionally and that all things work together for good to them that love the Lord and is called towards his purpose, the differences between mercy and grace, etc. I have never read a book with so much emotion, I stopped in many passages and just paused at some things that I read, it is a powerful poignant book for every believer in Christ or unbeliever! I love how the author uses personal testimonies about things that have happened to him and other to indenify with the reader.
This has become my favorite christian book, it is amazing, words cannot describe how much this has taught me. I would be reading more books by this astounding author!
The book Captured by Grace is held together by Apostle Paul and John Newton: Two sinners, centuries apart, whose lives tell the same story of God’s amazing grace. Through their lives and through the insight of many who have examined their lives, Jeremiah invites the reader to join the ranks of the Paul and Newton and partake of God’s amazing grace.
There are few books that I keep after reading; this one will stay on my shelf for sure. The stories, texts and trivia are crucial elements of Jeremiah’s exposition of grace. But what struck me most is his ability to make me, the reader, want to revel in God’s grace–not just because of my sinfulness but because of my gratefulness of the Cross and my renewed commitment to live for my Savior.
For those unfamiliar with the doctrine of grace, this is the perfect book for you; through it’s simple explanations and practical illustrations, you will understand the significance of grace in Christianity. For those who fully comprehend the grace of God, this book is like falling in love all over again; in the stories of changed hearts, you will find your love of Jesus rekindled with passion.
I found every page engaging; well, maybe not every page–I did not care for Jeremiah’s prelude. Perhaps that’s because of my personal dislike for historical fiction. I felt that his imaginative narrative of Paul persecuting Christians took away from the book. But I’m glad I moved on to the rest of the book; I was blessed by every page.

Such a wonderful book about the grace and mercy of God. This book will keep you mindful of God's love and sacrifice for His people, and in reading it, you will be more sensitive to God's heart leading to more patience, kindness, and compassion as well as passion for His people!
A great book to improve your spiritual walk with Christ. It's a reminder that God's grace is sufficient, and even the worst of us can be forgiven and fully pardoned of our sins through the grace that is found through the salvation found through Jesus Christ.
Jeremiah is a communicator. The message is on point. Well-illustrated.
