A Survivor's Point of view Aug 14, 2003
I am both a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and a Christian. I had high hopes for this book but I was gravely dissappointed. I find the Author's interpretation and presentation of scripture to be judgemental. I am sorry to say that I came away carrying more emotional baggage after reading this book than I had before I read it. She basically says that it is the victim's fault if he or she doesn't have a good relationship with God. She also offers advice in a quick fix manner. The book is summed up with nine reminders of faith that are presented throughout the book.In one of the nine the author actually suggests that you re-read the book if you do not feel healed after reading it the first time. I find this extremely arrogant on her part. In this conclusion the author places blame on the survivor if he or she neglects to be healed by her book. I would caution all survivors seeking guidance and support to look elsewhere.
An absolute must for counselors and/or survivors. May 29, 2000
This book was recommended in response to my exact question. This book not only provides some very precise insight into the problems that survivors face, but also the reasons why survivors find little to no comfort in the common church settings.
The author has an incredible gift at presenting word images in such a fashion, that you can not help but to see yourself in light of those needs. With sample prayers at the end of each chapter, this book was a wonderful tool to aide in the return to a Heavenly Father who is longing to embrace His child.
I have loaned this book to several friends, and will continue to recommend it. I would love to see more books from this author.
A healing book! Inspired by the comforting Holy Spirit! Jan 15, 1999
This is the first book that I have found that truly understands and does not judge those who have been hurt, abused during childhood and cannot trust.
The author shows compassion and true understanding which is very difficult to find within Christian books. Sadly, most Christian books and many counselors judge the issue of trust to purely be lack of submission and fail to recognize the root of the problem. They come across as callous, judgmental and drive people from God rather than help people genuinely heal and learn God's ways.
This book is different. The love and understanding of God and the author permeates every page. It leads the reader on a path toward genuine healing. It truly helps the person's faith and trust in God grow. It is a gentle, loving how to book. It moves step by step through the process of healing, learning trust and submission.
I believe it should be part of any ministry of healing for abused people, victims of violence or abandonment in childhood!
