Reviews - What do customers think about But Lord, I Was Happy Shallow: Lessons Learned in the Deep Places?
As good as the title Jul 13, 2005
This book was an excellent read! While the author makes the reader think about the principles presented, the ideas are understandable for persons who are not necessarily bible scholars.
The title But Lord, I was Happy Shallow is sure to attract attention and the stories included in this book are well worth the read! How often do we think how happy we were until God changed the situation ... seemingly for the worse? When life does not go our way, we normally turn into whiners and complainers just like the children of Israel in the wilderness. Despite our grumbling, God leads us to our promised land, a place of increased depth in our growth process.
The editor Marita Littauer has compiled over 100 real life stories of struggles and the lessons "learned in the deep places." The writers share from their souls often times with a bit of humor and a whole lot of humilty! The personal experiences cover a variety of topics including marriage, parenting, moving, health issues, church, holidays, friendships, road trips and much more.
This is a great book to give someone in need of encouragement. Often times we think we are alone in our troubles, but that is definitely not the case as one will find out when reading this book. --Tyora Moody, Word Praize Reviewer
Anything But Shallow Dec 1, 2004
This book was a welcomed respite in a very busy season of life. Each story turned an ordinary experience into an extraordinary life lesson that is easy to relate to. The stories are funny, tender, inspiring, and thought provoking, touching the heart as if being told by a dear friend. With excellence, Marita Littauer has compiled the experiences of many authors, providing encouragement at any season of life. It will make an excellent gift for those needing a boost in the "dailiness" of life.
Deerp Joy Aug 23, 2004
In her creative compilation But Lord, I Was Happy Shallow, gifted author-editor Marita Littauer has gathered an amazing array of true stories which demonstrates that it's the difficulties of our lives that produce the depth of our characters. The best things in life really aren't free. Spiritual growth costs us something. But oh the rewards! With wit, wisdom, and sometimes a little whimsy, these talented authors prove that God is bigger than any challenge they have faced. He has been there to stretch, shape, and sanctify them through the ups and downs of life, while always drawing them into closer relationship with Him. If you want to laugh, to cry, to rise higher and leave your "shallow-lands" in the dust beneath your feet, this book is your ticket to soaring. You may be happy shallow, but after reading Littauer's book,you'll realize that you can be joyful deep! -Lynn D. Morrissey, author of Love Letters to God and AWSA/CLASS speaker
