The premise of C. L. Chase's book, Grace-Focused Optimism, is that from beginning to end salvation is by God's grace. In his own inimitable style, Dr. Chase coaches us on how to live by grace each moment of each day.

'Grace' is perhaps the most used word in the evangelical vocabulary. However, it is not as well understood as it should be and needs to be. Charley Chase has written a biblical, passionate and personal exposition of what the Bible means by grace. There is an infectious 'grace focused optimism' that pulses through this book. Read it and catch the infection.
