Book Review - "The Good, The Bad, and the Grace of God"

Book Description from the publisher:

A Moving Story of Redemption and Second Chances

Jep Robertson, the youngest son of Duck Commander Phil Robertson, and his wife, Jessica, open up about their personal trials, their early years together, and the challenges that might have destroyed them both had the grace of God not intervened. Jep describes being molested as a child and his reluctance to tell anyone until only a few years ago, his downward spiral into drug and alcohol abuse, and the eventual intervention of his family. Jessica shares about the difficult failure of her first marriage while still a teenager and the hurt that came along with it, much of it from the church. Her insecurities spun out of control as she wondered whether she would ever be good enough or pretty enough. This book is their love story but, more importantly, their love story for God.
“We are desperate to let people know that no matter what you’ve done; no matter what you’ve lived through, you can come out of it. You can be washed clean. You are redeemed."

My Review:
This book is a must-read for each and every Duck Dynasty fan, but also for those whom are seeking a revitalized relationship with God.  Jep and Jessica share their hearts and their story with the readers, some of it being difficult, but ultimately to share the grace of God and let us know that God loves each of us and no matter what we have done and or what our pasts look like, we can be washed clean and redeemed.   This is a powerful message that come through to the reader.  This is an easy book to get into as the writing flows nicely and the message so powerful.
