Wild Grace - as you might gather from the cover illustration (though you know how the saying goes) and the addition of the term "wild" - is geared for a younger audience. I think it is recommended for 13 years and up. It's a repackaged, repurposed, and redesigned version of Grace for youth groups everywhere. The pages feature a layout designed for shorter attention spans - littered with inset quotes, sidetrack stories (that do tie in nicely with the main content), and inline discussion/personal study questions.
There are some illustrations that are exclusive to Wild Grace, but the bulk of the material appears in the main book. The biggest difference is presentation. Lucado (and his team) make the effort to reach young adult readers with a message that perhaps often escapes them because it is only addressed in "more serious" books, intended for adults with the appeal (in teen eyes) of a stale tuna fish sandwich. Kudos for expanding the audience and trumpeting this comforting message.

Review 2 for Wild Grace
Date:November 11, 2012
This book portrays God as the loving Father He is. His grace is enough for every person, no matter how far from Him they have gone. I love Max Lucado's style of writing. It is griping and real and fresh and full of love and grace and truth.
