“Epic Grace” not an epic success

REVIEW: Epic Grace: Chronicles of a Recovering Idiot by Kurt W. Bubna

This book is true and based on a person's life, so it’s is hard to say it is not good. But, I found myself waning toward the middle and started to get a tad uninterested.
The book is filled with chapters based on small testimony stories of author Kurt Bubna’s life. Some are downright funny and some are sad. He tries to illustrate through each story how he has seen God’s grace in his life.
This book does show how we need to be on the lookout for testimony stories in our own lives of how God is always at work. For me, possibly adding practical, thought-provoking questions that could help the reader see and make sense of their own stories of God’s grace would have been helpful.
One thing I did like that is unique, is at the back of the book there are QR codes, that when read by a smart phone, offer seven videos of the author explaining the book on an even deeper level.

You can see one of those videos at - Week 1 – What do you think about grace?
So, it wasn’t an epic failure, but it also wasn’t an epic success.
*Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for my unbiased review.
