"If you have come to understand, believe, and cherish those precious Bible truths that are oft tagged with the name the doctrines of grace, you have no doubt been asked such questions as these: What do you mean when you speak of the doctrines of grace? Do you mean to say that you believe that God chooses some people to be saved and does not purpose or plan to save all? Do you actually believe that the Bible teaches that God saves people against their will? If you desire to have a small volume calculated to furnish you with clear and compelling scriptural answers to these and other related questions, you are holding just such a volume in your hands. If you are one of those who have begun to be concerned to be modern Berean Christian, a man or woman determined to follow wherever the hand of Scripture may lead you, this is the book for you. Carefully avoiding any unbiblical terms and phrases that can precipitate knee-jerk reactions and unnecessary confusion, Pastor Meadows allows the Bible itself to speak its own message of grace in its own words of grace. In a profoundly simple, lucid, and pastorally warm and engaging way, Pastor Meadows has written these pages desiring to lead us to worship the God of all grace and to furnish us the biblical stuff to help others to know and worship at the footstool of God's amazing grace." —Albert N. Martin, former Pastor Trinity Baptist Church, Montville, New Jersey
"The doctrines of grace are the very heart and soul of the one, saving gospel of Jesus Christ. These five God-honoring truths stand together as one body of divinity. They speak with one voice and boldly testify that God saves sinners. In God's Astounding Grace, D. Scott Meadows provides us with an excellent, concise survey of these precious truths that is biblically based, crystal-clear, and, I believe, highly compelling. Throughout this insightful work, Meadows puts his finger on the vital nerve of what is true saving grace. You will surely discover that his careful handling of Scripture brings into sharp focus the stunning majesty of the loftiest mountain peaks of sovereign grace. To be sure, this is a helpful resource that you will want to study and share with others." —Dr. Steven J. Lawson, Senior Pastor Christ Fellowship Baptist Church, Mobile, Alabama
