I was really excited to have the chance to read “The Good, the Bad, and the Grace of God” before it actually hit the shelves! We have most of the books from the Robertson Family on our bookshelves and I knew I wanted to read what Jep and Jessica had to say!
I know that the Robertson family is not everyone's cup of tea! My husband and I like the show, Duck Dynasty. It is a whole other world down in Louisiana then we are used to here in Kansas. I think it is fun to see how other people live! I think our favorite part of the Duck Commander family is their strong faith!
This book is basically Jep and Jessica Robertson telling their story. They share stories from their childhood and help us see how they were raised and where they came from. The first few chapters are fairly unremarkable….and I can honestly say that I was having trouble really getting into the book…until I hit the 7th chapter. That is when things started to get a lot more real!
Jep and Jessica are both very forthcoming in this book about some things in their lives and in their pasts that they are not proud of. They show us that they are humans and they make mistakes like everyone else. The only real difference between their story and the story of so many people….is that they are Christians and they were able to humble themselves and ask for forgiveness for their sins. They knew that they could change their behaviors with help from God.
I think it is easy to sit in our homes and think that this family on the TV screen has it all together and has no real obstacles to deal with. This book will show you that Jep and Jessica are a real couple with the same type of problems that many married couples face. They have had things happen to them in their past that they still struggle with daily.
I think that “The Good, the Bad, and the Grace of God” is a great look at two people who wake up everyday and try to follow the Lord. They may stumble, but they pick back up and carry on. It is refreshing to hear about both sides of the coin….the good and the bad! The good news is that God's grace does cover it all!
I would recommend this book to anyone! It was an easy and quick read at 228 pages! If you are interested in reading “The Good, the Bad, and the Grace of God” you can get it online or at your local Family Christian store!
