Nonfiction Review: The Good, the Bad, and the Grace of God
Jep and Jessica deal with everything from body image to marital problems to sexual temptation to drugs and abuse. These portions of their stories are touching and make the read worthwhile. There are a few holes in the story, though. Jep gives his background as an excuse for his sins, but I'm sure there has to be more to it than that.
Aided by Susy Flory, their writing style is very laid back (i.e. This happened. Then this happened. Oh and I remember this happened too.) and conversational (sometimes to the book's detriment, but mostly making for an easy read).
I found out after I requested this book that the Robertsons believe baptism equals salvation, which I disagree with. But there were no real doctrinal concerns or issues present in the book, itself, although they did overemphasize baptism.
*Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
