I am an educator and avid reader. This is one of the best books I have ever read. God placed this book in my hands at a time when I needed it the most. Don't expect to read things you want to hear, because you will read things you NEED to hear. This book is life-changing. I took a long look in the mirror, made some adjustments, and sought forgiveness from those who had offended me.....Yes, you read that correctly "FORGIVENESS from those who had offended me". I like the woman I see looking back at me so much more now that I have placed those burdens at the feet of Jesus. I have made a gift of this book to many of my friends. Their lives have been changed as well. God Bless!!!
A ladies bible study group used this book as a 4 week bible study, book club style. The content of the book is excellent while leaving room for disagreement on various points. the personal daily pages in the back give short but meaningful daily work to enrich each users experience. Very timely book in evry decade.
I put off reading this one for a few years. Now I wish I hadn't. John hits home right where many of us live hoarding and hiding our offenses. I was challenged, convicted and educated throughout as I had to deal with my own offenses I hadn't let go of yet. This is a worthwhile read for anyone wanting to go deeper in their relationships with God and others.
