It is a truth which has power in our lives - it is God's invincible determination, through Jesus, to get glory from us by being good to us every day, all day long. Understanding grace leads to an optimism, rooted and grounded in our good and unchangeable God. C. L. Chase opens up the biblical truths associated with grace and promised to every believer, helping to show the adventure of a grace-governed life.

'Grace' is perhaps the most used word in the evangelical vocabulary. However, it is not as well understood as it should be and needs to be. Charley Chase has written a biblical, passionate and personal exposition of what the Bible means by grace. There is an infectious 'grace focused optimism' that pulses through this book. Read it and catch the infection.

The premise of C. L. Chase's book, Grace-Focused Optimism, is that from beginning to end salvation is by God's grace. In his own inimitable style, Dr. Chase coaches us on how to live by grace each moment of each day.

A multitude of struggling souls stand to be blessed richly by Pastor Chase's Grace-Focused Optimism. Mine surely was. Each chapter enabled me to grasp a deeper understanding of the grace of God and behold more of the glory of His Only Begotten Son.
