Elshof is talented in artfully weaving Scripture verses into his writings, using them liberally and consistently. Rarely does a chapter pass without three or four biblical references followed by scriptural examples.
However, I Told Me So is not without its faults. Readers may be offended by crude abbreviations quoted in the book, as well as bothered by repetitive opening chapters. Sentence variation is sparse, and some words become overused. The book also takes a little more time getting to the solutions, focusing more than four chapters on describing the plague of self-deception when a single chapter would have been adequate.
Yet, even with its blemishes, I Told Me So is a powerful book that forces the readers to analyze themselves honestly and to cast away the lies they may have been holding onto. Elshof eagerly wishes for his readers to develop a stronger and more intimate relationship with Christ, and mature Christians from any denomination could find growth in his book. The author is relatable, sincere, and open, making this book an enjoyable text in spite of a few trouble spots. Nan Johnson, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
