Unlimited Grace: The Heart Chemistry That Frees from Sin and Fuels the Christian Life

By Bryan Chapell

How God's Unlimited Grace Leads Us to Heartfelt Obedience

What if obeying God is not just dreary duty—going through the motions to avoid God's wrath or earn his favor? What if following Christ is pure joy—living in loving response to a grace so profound that it changes all our motivations and affections? Far from encouraging sin, this biblical understanding of grace fuels and empowers the obedience that God commands.

Explaining why grace is important and giving us tools to discover it in all of Scripture, Unlimited Grace helps us to see how gospel joy transforms our hearts and makes us passionate for Christ's purposes. Experienced pastor and author Bryan Chapell takes insights from a lifetime of relishing God's grace and pours them into this highly accessible and engaging book, helping readers see how God's grace shines through all of Scripture, for all of life. 


Bryan Chapell is the senior pastor of Grace Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Peoria, Illinois. He is also the host of a daily half-hour radio Bible teaching program, Unlimited Grace, and the founder and chairman of Unlimited Grace Media (unlimitedgrace.com). Bryan previously served as the president of Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri, and is the author of a number of books, including Holiness by Grace.


“In Unlimited Grace, Bryan Chapell draws our attention to the amazing grace of God. Many Christians struggle to understand and apply God’s grace personally. The church often struggles to apply the grace of God corporately. The unbelieving world desperately needs to hear the message of grace. In light of these realities, I am thrilled to see this needed, Christ-centered, and readable book. I wholeheartedly recommend it!”
Tony Merida, Lead Pastor, Imago Dei Church, Raleigh, North Carolina; author, Ordinary

“Chapell unpacks how the entire Christian life, from beginning to end, is by grace. The deepest message of the Bible and the ministry of Jesus Christ is the extravagant grace of God to sinners and sufferers. This good news is necessary to avoid the pitfalls of minimizing both the assurance of salvation and sanctification. Unlimited Grace celebrates God’s grace for all of life as it addresses head-on the practical and honest questions about what this looks like in real life.”
Justin S. Holcomb, Episcopal Priest; Professor, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; coauthor, Rid of My Disgrace and God Made All of Me; editor, Christian Theologies of Scripture

“Bryan Chapell shows how God’s love transforms us from the inside out. The questions he recommends we bring to the biblical text (such as, what does this passage teach me about God the Redeemer?) are ones I recommend for teachers and leaders tasked with delivering God’s Word on a regular basis. Let this book remind you that the power of God’s love is what moves us to obedience!”
Trevin Wax, Director for Bibles and Reference, LifeWay Christian Resources; author, This Is Our Time; Eschatological Discipleship; and Gospel-Centered Teaching

“When the prophet speaks for the Lord and proclaims, ‘My ways are not your ways,’ we shake our heads in agreement while assuming that it can’t possibly be true. We assume that we know better, especially regarding the things that will motivate God’s people to desire to live holy lives. We assume that the message of God’s radical grace will make people into radical sinners. That’s because, as Bryan Chapell so wisely states, we don’t understand the ‘chemistry of the heart.’ What makes the heart desire to love? What turns us from ourselves outwardly toward our neighbor? Pastor Chapell has been a gracious voice for years in my own life, and he really does understand that heart chemistry. I’m so thankful for his faithful life and work and that I get to recommend this book to you. I love it. I think you will too.”
Elyse Fitzpatrick, author, Give Them Grace

“Few books on the subject of God’s grace are as balanced, practical, and clear as this one. Bryan Chapell’s pastoral experience permeates these pages with both a realistic appraisal of the human heart and a compassionate, Christ-centered message of hope. This book is packed with insight into the mysteries of why we do what we do and how to live in the light of God’s grace. Thank you, Bryan—I was helped.”
Donald S. Whitney, Associate Dean and Professor of Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; author, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life and Praying the Bible

“Once again my brother and friend has done what he does as well as anyone I know, or anyone in print. Bryan Chapell invites us to see and savor the endless riches and transforming implications of God’s grace. There are so many reasons I’m excited about this book. At the top of the list is the invaluable wisdom Bryan offers to those who fear an overemphasis on God’s grace. With the mind of a scholar and the heart of a pastor, Bryan shows us that we never balance grace with anything. Though it’s certainly possible to misuse God’s grace, it’s impossible to make too much about what God has accomplished on our behalf through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. God’s grace, and God’s grace alone, gives us the motivation and means for living and loving to God’s glory.”
