Book Review: Captured by Grace by David Jeremiah


Moving from one line of the great hymn, Amazing Grace, to the next, Dr. David Jeremiah offers a renewing and encouraging call to engage the gospel in his book, Captured by Grace. Weaving back and forth between the life of the Apostle Paul and of John Newton (the writer of Amazing Grace), the author demonstrates the reality of the hymn’s words in both of their lives and points the reader to Christ, where both of these men found unexpected grace, a new life and a new purpose.

If you are looking for deep theology to dive into soteriology or sanctification, this is not the book you are looking for. If, instead, you want to re-experience the power of the gospel, this is a great read. The book is an easy read. The tendency could be to brush through the pages quickly. Slow down and enjoy the story of God’s grace at work in these two men, anticipating his grace-filled work in your life.
