No glib remedies: Genius Grief and Grace

9781845503598No glib remedies… that was what John Stott said about this book Genius Grief and Grace and how ‘some of God’s heroes and heroines have been eccentric and neurotic, and have suffered repeated breakdowns’ but “My Grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness”(2 Cor. 12:9).

Dr. Gaius Davies introduces us to Martin Luther, John Bunyan, William Cowper, Lord Shaftesbury, Gerard Manly Hopkins, Christina Rossetti, Amy Carmichael, J.B. Phillips, C.S. Lewis, Martyn Lloyd Jones and Frances Ridley Havergal.

Through their lives and each individual’s unique trial we see how grace operated in each of them.

Davies is not afraid to show how anxiety, guilt, depression and doubt can be present in the finest of Christian lives, but he also goes on to show how divine grace can transform human weakness.

There are no glib remedies but with God’s grace there will be hope.
