About Grace Jacob
Grace Jacob served the Lord (with her husband and two sons) in Hong Kong and Mainland China from 1986-2015, where she was passionate about sharing the gospel in a way that respected the beliefs of her friends. By God’s grace she led many atheists, Buddhists, idol-worshipers, and an animist to the Lord. She speaks the heart languages of her Chinese friends—Cantonese and Mandarin. Grace loves telling a good story, whether around a BBQ with friends, or while speaking on evangelism in front of audiences around the nation. She holds a Bachelor of Biology, and she also holds a Master of Divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Grace has been published in Decision magazine. She now lives in the woods in Bend, Oregon with her husband and black cat.

In the kick-off meeting of a discussion group Grace was leading for atheist university students, Carol burst out laughing. “Grace, you can’t be serious! You actually believe God exists?”
In Dragon Ride, the beauty of the Lord is seen through the eyes of Buddhists, atheists, idol-worshippers, Muslims, and an animist as they encounter Jesus. Dragon Ride records the actual conversations Grace had with her friends, and many of them embraced Christ as the answer to their deepest longings.
Grace writes about persecution, evading the police, saving lives, helping the homeless and disabled, and she even writes about the murder of a friend. But more importantly, she writes of a God who acts on behalf of His children, of a faith that grew in the crucible of China, and of learning how to effectively share the gospel.
Grace’s stories are raw, personal, and humorous, and she openly shares about her own spiritual struggles and growth.
