The Principle of the Path

On 6/17 Cary Plunkett wrote: I originally volunteered to review, “The Principle of the Path,” because it was written by Andy Stanley and I wanted an easy read.

The Grace of God

The Grace of God

On 10/20 Cary Plunkett wrote: “The Grace of God,” is Andy Stanley’s fifth book and some say his best book.

The topic of God’s grace can sometimes be very complicated to explain but, like he does most things, ... The Grace of God by Andy Stanley
