What’s So Amazing About Grace

Hoyt Byrum

In Philip Yancey’s classic book, “What’s So Amazing About Grace” his first chapter is entitled, The Last Best Word. Yancey declares, “Perhaps I keep circling back to grace because it is one grand theological word that has not spoiled. I call it ‘the last best word’ because every English usage I can find retains some of the glory of the original. Like a vast aquifer, the word underlies our proud civilization, reminding us that good things come not from our own efforts, rather by the grace of God.”

  1. My last living salary full-time employment was terminated early 2021 after being partially disabled due to being rear-ended in 2019 car accident. This has left me supporting my family of three without steady income flow and with mounting medical costs in treatments and recovery.

    Additionally, my wife and daughter were hit by another car recently at night September 14, 2023, increasing our medical costs. Thankfully, the airbags saved their lives. My life has been a testimony of seeing the reality of I Corinthians 15:58 displayed in thousands of lives and witnesses, largely due to my parent’s faithful testimony and character as they pastored numerous churches and camping ministries.

    I am very grateful for this platform and the ability for believers to respond as prompted in God’s love.
