This book is not filled with sweet, simple, five minute devotions.  It’s a study of Romans that is filled with Biblical truth that needs the reader’s full time and attention to let it sink in and have an impact.  This is a book that I’ll be reading through again at my own pace and let the message speak to me.  I was quite impressed with this book.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher.  All opinions are my own.

Although written with the characteristic research, thoroughness and attention to detail Mary DeMuth brings to everything she writes, this book of devotional reflections requires slower reading in order to digest the nuggets of truth and insights being shared. As an in-depth bible study of the book of Romans, it is enlightening and eminently helpful in making the harder passages not only readable but relatable. 

Broken down into bite-size chunks, accompanied by heartfelt poetic songs, prayers and thoughtful questions, each section is rendered more easily digestible than it might be otherwise. The author has a great gift for words and for drawing out the deeper meaning of the text. All of which helps the reader to better understand the more challenging passages. 

I took it slowly, not rushing the time required like I might have done with a novel or a less exhaustive text. And if you do the same, you will find that the teaching builds beautifully on itself, as your own understanding grows. You will also develop a deeper appreciation for the original text in its historical and social context.

I have to admit that the book of Romans is not the easiest to study and definitely not for the faint-hearted. But here, in Mary DeMuth’s very capable hands, it proves to be a fascinating glimpse into how God wants to instruct us in the art of holy living and spiritual understanding, as described in Paul the Apostle’s epistle. Its glorious, redemptive message is made easier to accept because of this truthful, freeing, grace-filled book.

Mary is a great writer. Each of her books have been written with her heart and soul. She has been written over 40 books and each of them is worth the read.

Outrageous Grace Every Day is a daily devotional through the book of Romans. This is an easy read packed with deep truths. It helped me to meditate on Gods word each morning and helped me to keep my focus on Jesus throughout my day. This book walks the reader through verses pointing you to its core message of God's amazing grace that saves us from death into abundant life. Very solid and biblical. I recommend this to anyone looking for a new devotional.

I really enjoyed this 90 day devotional book full of inspiration. Each day a devotional is shared followed by some personal inspiration from the author or other examples and a personal prayer. I definitely can see the benefit of reading this in a group setting! Thanks to NetGalley and Harvest House Publishers for an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.

I love Mary DeMuth’s writings and Everything is one of my all-time favorite books. When I saw she had a new devotional out, I knew I had to read it! Outrageous Grace Every Day is a daily devotional through the book of Romans. It’s a quick read, but each days gives you time to sit with the rich truth of Romans. Romans is one of my favorite books of the Bible and I’m grateful for the opportunity to slow down and take this beloved book one day at a time. She encourages the reader to go through this with a friend and I love that idea! It would be great to go through with a group of friends and have a group text or weekly video call to talk over what you are learning. I highly recommend this fresh look at such a transformational book of the Bible. 
This book was given to me for free by NetGalley, but my opinions are my own.

An excellent read going verse by verse through the book of Romans.
DeMuth writes in a clear and understandable way taking us through Romans in three months. She takes us through at a very slow and considered pace explaining clearly what we are reading in context and in comparison to the whole Bible. Ending each reading with a relevant prayer.
I was given this book by net Galley and Harvest House in return for an honest review.

"Outrageous  Grace Every Day"  by  Mary DeMuth  is a  90  day devotional.  This  book is  written by Mary DeMuth in a personal   and  practical  approach.  She  shares  a passage of  scripture and  gives the back round of the passage.  She   also  gives  an  application passage to the message and a prayer.  The devotional is well written and the passages to read are not too long.   I  really  found this  devotional helpful and personable.  It is  good for busy people  This book  will give  the reader a  deeper understanding to  the book of Romans. .  I  appreciate the publisher and netgalley for allowing me to read and review  this  book.   The opinions of this  book are my own .  I am sharing this review with facebook,  netgalley, Goodreads, my blog, the pastoral staff at my church.

Beautifully written commentary study on the book of Romans! Great to do alone but absolutely wonderful to do in a group!

This book is a 90 day devotional based on the epistle of the Apostle Paul to the Romans. Each chapter begins with a worship song penned by Mary DeMuth. The daily passages are short, followed by some thoughts - sometimes personal in nature, sometimes more theological- and a personal prayer. 
DeMuth encourages her readers to get a few friends to read the devotional together and discuss what they've learned every week. The letter to the Romans wasn't a letter to an individual person, but to the Body of Christ, the Church, with a message that is still just as true and needed today: the hope of the good news!  We are members of this Church and are meant to grow together, so DeMuth encourages us to immerse ourselves in Scripture both alone and in community. 
"The power of the gospel is this: All are welcome. Whether we're Jew or Gentile, whether we have the law or do not, whether we grew up in a Christian home or didn't, whether we ran far away from the Lord or stayed cautiously near, the invitation is unbiased and welcoming. We all need a Savior." (chapter 2)

I enjoyed reading it on my own, but I know I would also enjoy reading it with a group of friends, as DeMuth recommends.  

Thanks to Harvest House Publishers, Mary DeMuth and Netgalley for the ARC.

This 90 day devotional is original in that it is a study of Romans. Not your typically women's devotional fare! I was impressed with the depth of study as well as the positive outlook it created in me. This was a joyous read and unlike any other look into Romans that I have read.

90 days in Romans, which might be good for a Bible study, but just not what I was looking for in a devotional book at this time.

This 90 day devotional is such a fresh and joyful perspective on the book of Romans. As Mary leads you through a story of God's redemptive love, you will be reminded that nothing you can do will alter the life changing reality of what Jesus accomplished on the cross. 
This is a way to immerse yourself in daily scriptures and prayers.

This is a very good devotional on the book of Romans. Each day has a scripture to read, a prayer and it explains what you just read. This book would be good for a bible study group or personal bible study. Thank you Harvest House Publishers via NetGalley for the ARC copy of this book. All opinions expressed are my own.
