I bought these to give this to non-believers for Christmas but I didn't because I felt the beginning was confusing and not very clear. I was suprised because Max Lucado's writing is normally so user-friendly.
I read this little book for the first time about 2 years ago and was overwhelmed with knowing that I was that women, the outcast, the unwanted who had been forgiven much. This year I ordered a bulk amount to be given to the women in the "faith based" wing of Hiland Mountain Correctional facility. These transformed women need the encouragement at Christmas to know that they are capable of being forgiven no matter what they have done. If you know a women who is heart sick from her past, this is a wonderful ministry tool of encouragement for her. I know because it encouraged me.
