Why IS that sound so sweet?

"Meet Grace" is an online article from a group called Christian Counterculture. The article is by Philip Yancey, and it's a beautiful word picture of that old familiar hymn, "Amazing Grace," and why that sound is so sweet.

Here's the opening paragraph of the article, to give you a teaser:

During a British conference on comparative religions, experts from around the world debated what, if any, belief was unique to the Christian faith. They began eliminating possibilities. Incarnation? Other religions had different versions of gods appearing in human form. Resurrection? Again, other religions had accounts of return from death. The debate went on for some time until C. S. Lewis wandered into the room. "What's the rumpus about?" he asked, and heard in reply that his colleagues were discussing Christianity's unique contribution among world religions. Lewis responded, "Oh, that's easy. It's grace."
