Item description for The Elephant in My Living Room: Exposing the Blind Spots in Our Lives by Marlane Renner...

BLIND SPOTS? Many of us struggle with blind spots-ingrained habits or problems that are obvious to everyone else but not to us. Marlane Renner was raped at the age of 12 by a stranger, and her subsequent anger and mistrust of men colored her life from that day forward. She eventually learned the keys with which to confront and deal with her problems. Renner includes not only her story with its insights and keys for change, but also a 20-page study guide

Reviews - What do customers think about The Elephant in My Living Room: Exposing the Blind Spots in Our Lives?

A Brave Portrait of Courage and Hope  Dec 2, 2004
Marlane Renner's book must be appreciated for its candor and bravery. Beyond that, she helps readers work toward finding our own elephants, or the destructive patterns in our own lives, as we try to understand the pain she must have felt in a life changed forever by rape. It is a fast read and an insightful portrait of a woman struggling every day to walk with God.
congradulations to the author!  Nov 18, 2003
I admit, I'm not particularly religious, nor do I think I have many significant elephants in my life (certainly nothing that rises to the level of what the author went through), but despite all this, Ms. Renner's book was a fast and fascinating read. The book is searingly honest, which makes it not only a hopeful guide for others who seek healing through faith, self-awareness and sheer will, but for people like me, it is an open, honest and insightful portrait of someone who has survived an trauma most of us will could never imagine. I have to congradulate the author on such a brave and unflinching achievement. This kind of self-examination and self-critique takes a lot of guts to put onto paper and that it's put down so incisively and with such clarity and detail is truly applaudable.
The Elephant in My Living Room  Sep 10, 2003
There are books one reads that make you feel you will become a better person for having read it. Marlane's book is such a book. She has laid open her life, and brings the reader along with her in her physical and emotional trauma showing how her entire life was affected for years. She then shows how forgiving the one who wronged her so badly brought healing to her person. She shows how forgiveness gives a changing movement from negative emotions to positve.
The Elephant in My Living Room  Jul 15, 2003
I read the book before I attended a seminar taught by Ms. Renner. The Elephant in My Living Room helped me identify my own "elephant." While I was never sexually abused as Renner was, I learned that I did, indeed, have an elephant in my house. I thank her for sharing both her story and her faith. She offers help for anyone through faith in Jesus Christ.
Breaking down the walls of My Unresolved Issues (Elephants)  Jul 12, 2003
The Elephant In My Living Room is a captivating story of innocence and life - taken captive by control, distrust and silence - and the struggle to find release from the nightmares and pain inflicted by the consuming power of one dysfunctional person. Marlane's journey through the desert of this despair to find the Living Water for bathing and cleansing of her soul is a story that has changed my life forever. The book is so astounding that it must be devoured in one sitting. Then upon reflection of how Marlane overcame and herded the elephants from her life, I was drawn to read the story a second and third time to savor the Divine steps of her journey that helped me to crack the foundation - allowing walls of pain in my life to start tumbling down. My elephant was not like Marlane's, but still a very real unresolved issue that was clouding ALL my relationships and my close walk with Jesus Christ. Using the accompanying study guide questions related to my elephant facilitated the success of bringing hope and happiness into my life. Thank you Marlane for your transparency.
