Epic Grace

by Kurt W. Bubna

 

This book was written by Kurt W. Bubna, the founding and lead pastor of Eastpoint Church…and a self-professed “recovering idiot.” Bubna’s father was a pastor who made some major mistakes and walked away from the ministry, and Kurt also made some mistakes and came close to walking away from the faith. The book contains many personal stories and illustrations from Bubna’s life, and Bubna wrote in a very encouraging manner. The book contained chapters on sexual sin, religion vs. grace, unrealistic expectations, and other relevant topics. In everything he wrote, Bubna focused on our tendency to make poor and sinful choices, as well as our need for God’s grace.

 

I enjoyed the book. It is not the best book I have read on grace, but it was entertaining. Bubna has a good sense of humor (often self-deprecating), and I found myself chuckling at sentences and stories throughout each chapter. Bubna is also a good storyteller. His stories were interesting, and he was able to tie his stories into his main ideas; there were no pointless stories in the book. One of the most impressive (and probably most difficult for Bubna) aspects of the book was the transparency with which the author wrote. He told some very personal stories about his family and himself, laying it all out there for the world.
