God never wastes anything—our strengths, our successes, or our mistakes. In this collection of true stories, Kurt Bubna, a self-confessed “recovering idiot,” chronicles his own honest, heartfelt, and often hilarious missteps along the path to grace. You’ll discover what it means to experience the unconditional love of God, regardless of how often you stumble, and you’ll gain a fresh view of how to find God’s purpose for your life. Learn from Kurt’s trials and triumphs that God is indeed the God of second chances—and His epic grace can transform even the most imperfect life into something priceless.
I think this was an interesting book. It felt more like a memoir than self help spiritual book. He was very open about his mistakes and what he learned about epic grace in his life. It sometimes helps to realize that everyone else is a "recovering idiot" too. "If you haven't figured it out by now, the words Grace, Love, and Forgiveness are nearly synonymous." That is one of my favorite quotations from the book. The chapters were short and flew by. There were also many hilarious moments in his life he shared. Overall I enjoyed reading this book.
