I’ve started reading through my reading list for the year. Gracenomics by Mike Foster is the first book I’ve read. In addition to being on my 2011 reading list it is one of the books I wanted to read for my One Word.
This book blew me away.
I think I highlighted more in this book than I have any other book including Crazy Love – which also blew me away.
In it Mike looks at grace through a lens called gracenomics: combining the definition of grace – the act of giving favor when it is not required – with term economics.
He says, “Gracenomics is the science that deals with the production, distribution, and consumption of grace.” (GRACENOMICS pg. 16)
He focuses on three areas. Grace for You, Others, and the Workplace. In each area he digs in deep. Giving valid examples of how grace works. From not investing in things that tear us down and lies we’re told to how grace works in the workplace in a way that it can actually increase revenue for the company.
Through out the book Mike challenges the reader. At the end of sections he gives actions and insights and a place for you to write down your own thoughts and personal applications.
In my wrestle with grace this book was an incredible encouragement. It caused me to think more, to seek God more on what grace looks like.
