For anyone who has experienced difficulty Sep 9, 2000
This book is a must for anyone who has gone through hard times. Gene Edwards provides a revealing look at the eternal perspective of life and it's struggles in this beautifully written book. It is a read I will never forget.
If you're going through hell, then this book is for you. Jan 28, 2000
In this book, Gene sheds a lot of light on the area of suffering. Though not all of it is meant to be taken literally, Gene writes from the perspective of an elderly Christian who is reflecting back on his life. Gene show us how God uses suffering to mold us into his perfect vessel. I suggest this book to anyone who is having a hard time and does not know why.
This book is not one of Gene's better ones Jan 24, 2000
While very convincing and moving in its presentation, this book contains ideas that could have potentially damaging effects on a believer's life. I was so distraught after seeing the effects that this line of thinking had among some believers that I know that I took my copy out and burned it. Don't waste your money.
A practical look at the cross in the life of the believer Dec 29, 1999
The Inward Journey is my favorite Gene Edwards book. It's simplicity and depth will arrest even the newest Christian in their walk towards the deep things of God. The book reads like a personal journal of experience, pain, revealing with it the divine purpose behind it all. Gene goes into the deep workings of the cross in our lives, a subject that is not effectively and practically taught to believers. After reading this book, I stopped blaming myself (and the devil for that matter) for most of the negative situations that I confronted in life. I have been greatly enrichened and TRULY edified by this book. I've at read it at least TEN TIMES! The Inward Journey is a classic masterpiece of Christian literature that will bring into perspective brokeness and pain from a divine viewpoint. You cannot help but feel that after reading this book, your sufferings will have both eternal and internal merit. In a world full of prosperity books, prophecies, and "name it claim it" doctrines, Gene cuts through the shallowness of it all and confronts you with spiritual substance, reflection, and healing. All of Gene's books have revolutionized my spiritual life, as well as show me a refreshing and real glimpse of our Lord. He is a truly unique gift to the body of Christ.
Fantastic! it was enlightening and entertaining Sep 22, 1998
This book kept me spellbound. The author has a wonderful talent for exploring and explaining a subject normally done in boring textbook verse. It is written for Christians from a Biblical perspective and is laced through characters which leave you asking for more.
