First of all, I don't recommend this book. At all. Let me explain why. This book is very good at explaining the motivations and behaviors of people with eating disorders. The problem lies in the answers the book gives and the theology that is incorporated into those answers. My main issue with this book is that the first 3/4 of it point the reader with an eating disorder to hope as their answer. That hope is hope in themselves and for their own future. It is not the hope of Christ. The author says over and over that you should go to God for what you can get out of him and for what He can give you. Not once did I read that you should go to God because of who He is. The relationship that is advocated is entirely self serving. No thank yous. The reader's eyes are solely on themselves. The problem with that is that in order to take one's mind off of food your mind must refocus. And keeping your mind on yourself is not refocusing. One must take one's eyes off of themselves and put them on God.
I was talking to a friend and she said that the picture the book was presenting of God was incomplete. I told her, no, it was actually wrong. Here's why I believe it's wrong. Whenever God is mentioned in this book, except for near the very end, Jesus never is. It is not explained what Jesus did. It is not explained that in fact we are ALL sinners and fall short of the glory of God. In order to put off our sin we need to acknowledge our sin and imperfectness while at the very same time fall into God's grace and his love or else we will become overwhelmed. Grace is not explained in this book. Another issue I had with this book was that it isn't addressed that God is in control and we aren't. In essence, the answers the author gives are all about the reader taking control, but in a new way. Controlling one's mind by choosing to feel. Controlling one's body by choosing to eat healthy foods. Controlling one's environment by choosing wisely who you turn to. In our culture, the message constantly bombards us that we are in control of our lives. In reality, we just aren't. We have to come to peace with this and trust in God--not in ourselves. Yes, we are responsible for making responsible choices, but ultimately "control" lies with God. This was my whole issue with why I wouldn't surrender for years to God. I thought I was in control. But, what I learned was that I couldn't change my heart on my own. This leads to my final concern about the book.
The chapter on forgiveness. In this chapter, forgiveness is written about as something we solely have the power to do on our own. In actuality, it is the Holy Spirit (which is never mentioned in this book) which enables us to forgive. It isn't actually even explained what forgiveness is and what it looks like in practicality.
There is a lot of good information in this book, but I hope there are other books out there which would be better.
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of Hope, Help, and Healing for Eating Disorders from Waterbrook/Multnomah for review.
