Reviews - What do customers think about Forgiven Much?
"Forgiven Much" is gripping and timeless! An exceptional story. Nov 8, 2007
"Forgiven Much", is a gripping and timeless account of how abuse plays a vital role in women's lives. A biblical back drop given by the author details not only the complex personality of Mary Magdalene but is a clever and captivating way to parallel a very private, hurtful story. Just when you thought you knew about Mary Magdalene from the Bible, you find yourself entrenched in this newly unpredictable way her life story is told, and eventually she is understood. The path is set at an early age for a life of self-destruction. A life of sexual and emotional abuse gives the reader a multi-dimensional look into this untold story of Mary and how she earned her way into the Bible, eventually being saved by Jesus himself. How does this once lonely, hurting, shame filled, desperate women with a bad reputation become holy and a follower of Jesus Christ? A real child, young girl and eventually a woman, living and experiencing abuses as real today as they were in biblical times.
Leslie Dean's writing is exceptional. Dean weaves her story with attention to every detail and integrity with biblical accuracy. Her writing brings the Bible to life; it's like reading in 3D. You feel Mary's heart pound, her tears fill your eyes, and her moments of joy give you a sense of happiness. Mary takes you places you didn't know existed both in the Bible and in her personal journey. "Forgiven Much" is a message of encouragement, hope, love, and most of all GRACE. Through Mary's story, it's clear that ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD.
