The Way of GraceReviewed by: Alexis Turner, professional writing major at Taylor University



Title: The Way of Grace: Finding God on the Path of Surrender

Author: Glandion Carney and Marjean Brooks

Publisher: InterVarsity Press

Publication Date: Oct 16, 2014

Format: Paperback

Length: 152 Pages


Anglican priest Glandion Carney is currently battling Parkinson’s disease. Throughout this book he guides his readers through the different struggles he has faced, and he provides insight to solutions at the end of each chapter. Some of the topics Carney faces deal with grace, submission, relinquishment, compassion, vulnerability, simplicity, and hopefulness. The Way of Grace can be read as a devotional because of the specific way it was written. Carney shows his readers the cold hard truth of living with Parkinson’s disease and how it affects his everyday living. The realistic problems he faces make way for a genuine and compassionate case study. Marjean Brooks also provides phenomenal words of encouragement and fills in the gaps of Carney’s sentence fluency as they both grab their readers and show them how God’s grace can be proven in any given situation.
