Book Club for From Good to Grace

Are you weary from the pressures of do-more, try-harder? Do you struggle to believe that God loves you? Do you lack an understanding of how the gospel of grace applies not just to your salvation but to your daily life as well?

From Good to Grace is a book that offers hope and freedom to the works-weary Christian. And it's a book best read and discussed with others! So grab some friends, form a book club (use this editable flyer as an invitation if you want), and watch the corresponding videos before you begin the discussion each time you gather. In the videos, you'll meet my friends and hear our stories of letting go of the goodness gospel. I'll also give your group discussion points in addition to the questions at the back of the book. Enjoy your time reading and discussing! Let me know your thoughts and questions using #fromgoodtograce on any social media platform or email me directly.

Part One of From Good to Grace: Good, Bye
Before watching this video, read chapters 1, 2, and 3.

In this video, I talk with my friend Marylyn about:
  • how we tend to evaluate our "goodness" on outward circumstances or our behaviors
  • how we try to manipulate God to get what we want with our "goodness"
  • how we can receive hard things as love from God
  • how we cultivate dependence upon the Lord

Supplemental question for your group: What is the fruit being borne in your life? Is it gospel-fruit--love, joy, gratitude, and contentment? Or do you see bitter fruit from the goodness gospel of comparison, people-pleasing, lack of forgiveness, or discontentment?


Part Two of From Good to Grace: Receiving
Before watching this video, read chapters 4, 5, and 6.

In this video, I talk with my friend Amy about:
  • how the goodness gospel cultivates a reliance on self
  • how to combat self-reliance and the pride at our core
  • the belief that we can earn more of God's love
  • how we can receive God's love
  • the resource of the Holy Spirit that we have
  • how we can distinguish between self-condemnation and the Holy Spirit's conviction

Supplemental question for your group: Are you living the Christian life with an orphan mentality or an inheriting child's mentality?


Part Three of From Good to Grace: Responding
Before watching this video, read chapters 7, 8, 9, and the conclusion.

In this video, I talk with my friend Susan about:
  • what it means to give grace to other women
  • how comparison is a symptom of the goodness gospel
  • how to combat comparison
  • how knowing God's approval is essential to giving grace to others
  • the importance of rejoicing in our differences
