I heard about this book from a friend. He said it was life changing. Finally about 2 years later I got around to reading it. I wish I had read it immediately! The biblical truths and wisdom that is shared is definitely a gift from God. I learned so much and keep re-reading parts of the book. I intend to re-read the entire book now. In the short time since I have read book, I have had conversations with 3 different people that are also living with the deadly trap of offense. I am purchasing 10 copies to give away. Definitely feel this is a very special "gift" that needs passed on!
I heard about this book a couple of years ago, but it wasn't until recently that I decided to pick up a few copies for some friends of mine who were caught up in a battle of wills that festered and then became a huge and bitter issue. I gave the first one away, but I started to read the other copy and realized that there were issues in my own life that needed to be addressed. Over the past few months I have purchased numerous copies of this book along with the work books, however as people hear about the book, they ask if they can have a copy. Needless to say that I have run out of copies again and will need to place another order soon. I have had individuals come into my office and say 'how much they hate the book' and then go on to tell me how the Holy Spirit is revealing to them issues in they lives that they haven't wanted to admit to, issues of bitterness, issues that have deeply hurt and they are being convicted that they need to do something. One lady told me that the first page she opened the book to was the page about not leaving a church until God tells you to go. She had just decided after months of struggling that she could no longer face certain people Sunday after Sunday and that she just wasn't going to come to church anymore and the first words in the book that she reads is that 'you should never leave a church until God tells you to go and you leave with joy.'
I have given copies of this book to some church board members and it is our hope that this will become the next book study in our church. This book is awesome. It makes you take a good hard truthful look at yourself and the issues that you face or have tried to ignore. Whether the issues are large or small, you must deal with them so that you can be free to live your life the way God would want you to.
My Bible mentor recommended this book to me when I returned to church last year. I saw how offense, grudges, hate and unforgiveness were keeping me baited to Satan. This book is an immediate eye opener to things you can do to change Satan's bait over your life. Highly recommended. Powerful.
