What exactly is the "grace effect"?

“Simply defined, the ‘grace effect’ is an observable phenomenon—that life is demonstrably better where authentic Christianity flourishes.” Larry Taunton, author, The Grace Effect
Would the world be a better place without Christianity?  Historian and Christian apologist Larry Taunton has spent much of his career refuting that idea.  Mr. Taunton describes meeting Sasha, a golden-haired orphan girl whose life has been shaped by atheistic theorists.  When he and his family decide to get to know Sasha and adopt her he discovers the transforming power of grace.
The Grace Effect describes the false promises of socialism, the influence of unbelief, and the story of Sasha’s redemption.  The reader is able to see the false promises of socialism and the soul-destroying influence of unbelief.  Mr. Taunton shows us the kind of world the atheists would give us--cold, pitiless, and graceless.
This is an excellent book about a true story.  It gives a very realistic picture of a very sad situation in Ukraine, the orphanage/adoption system.  Obviously I won't give away the ending, but I think you'll find the story quite inspiring.

One of my favorite inspirational stories was Riven by Jerry B. Jenkins. Encouragement for staying the course - because when it is time to harvest, you want to be ready.

My favorite inspirational author would have to be Frank Peretti. :-)
