Glenn ChatfieldNorth Liberty, IAAge: 55-65Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5April 8, 2008Glenn ChatfieldNorth Liberty, IAAge: 55-65Gender: maleExcellent message concerning our inner, godly beauty. However, I found a few points needing discernment. Throughout the book, Jer. 29:11-13 is used out of context (which isn't unusual). The passage is about God's use of and plan for Israel, not any individual. It makes a good analogy, but that should be noted. Several times the author writes about how God created us. God created only Adam and Eve and the rest of us came about by procreation in the natural course of events. God sees what we will be like, but He doesn't ordain it.Since being overweight was the author's main personal issue, aside from her excellent teaching about weight not being a reflection of one's worth I think she needed to emphasize that an overweight condition is usually the result of over-eating - gluttony - which is a sin, and the lack of self-control associated with it. There were some other minor issues, but overall the book is an excellent teaching resource.
