A WONDERFUL BOOK, ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO DEAL WITH REJECTION AND ABANDONMENT ISSUES. THIS BOOK CAN REALLY HELP! DAVID SEAMANDS IS A GREAT AUTHOR AND KNOWS ALOT ABOUT THE GRACE OF GOD AND THAT IS WHAT EVERYBODY NEEDS TO BE FREE OF THEIR PAST!
I read this book over 20 years ago when I was going through a divorce and separation due to different kinds of abuse. It was so helpful to me that I gave away my copy to someone else who needed it. Then I purchased this new copy to send to my brother who is now going through the same thing I did.
I was introduced to this book a long time ago by a couple of University Professors. As I read it, it helped me to understand so many things about relationships and how to put injurious practices and thoughts behind us and eventually be able to forget them. I have used the concepts in the book for bible class and for preaching. And I often have some on hand for loaning out to those with whom I am counseling. Say for a couple to read. She to underline significant parts with red and he in blue and then have each go back an read together and discuss the various parts that each considered important. Great book and it is always timely and doesn't go out of date.
This book has literally been life-changing. I was able to discover that I fall under the perfectionist category and in so many ways it was dead on describing my personality. Using Biblical Scripture it helped me realized some emotional setbacks that were limiting me as a person and although it's a process I can say that I feel free and on my way to full emotional recovery!
