Not Ashamed to LOVE this Book Aug 1, 2004
Wow! What an amazing mix of compelling storytelling and true theology. A friend sent me this book b/c of the title. She knows I am a huge Oz fan. I am also fromt he mining regions of KY. I was hooked on this book from word one until the end and now I wish I had more to read. The things I learned about shame, tithing and faith will stick with me forever, I am sure. I think everyone should read this book and open their lives more to the Holy Spirit.
Compassionate Artistry With Compassionate Restoration Feb 9, 2002
As a singer/songwriter, I was drawn to the church where Reba Rambo McGuire and Dony McGuire preach, The River at Music City. Little did I know how much our stories were similar. As I read her book, I wept, I laughed, I prayed..."Lord, change me" just as Reba had prayed at one point in her life. This book is a compassionate exploration of two very talented, very compassionate people and their lives together. They have honestly shared their failures and what it took to get back up on the horse again. Little did I know that in reading her book, I would gain the courage to believe that all that I had endured was for a purpose too. With phrases like, "Praise is God's Oxygen" ...you can't go wrong in learning from their life's story. It clearly raises compassionate restoration into the forefront. We need to be compassionate towards one another. I am so blessed that I can call them pastors and loving mentors. You have to get this book and read it. It will change how you view others. It will change how you view yourself. It will change YOU!! Perhaps you or someone else you know has suffered hellacious relationship with another person... get this book. In a world when people would rather toss out the bad with the bath water, this book tells you that sometimes the good can be saved and completely restored. Buy ten... give them out to the people you love most... let the words of the restoring power of God minister deep into your soul. They are the most honorable people I know and the most loving. When I finished the book, I knew why God had aligned my heart with theirs. Buy the book, you'll never be the same. You'll never judge anyone again.
The Yello Brick Road Strikes Gold Feb 6, 2002
What could this book be without a heart/brain/courage and the path home? Reba and Judy have birthed this tome in love and sweat for others to be helped and blessed by. An amalgam of events is presented here with the focus on the end results: relying on the One who can shine up your life while making your heart His home. To quote Reba many moons ago in her song 'Land of Oohs and Aahs', "He's so much more than a wizard, and He can make new creatures out of us."
The hands of time are wound back twenty years: prior to pastoring The River At Music City, before eight years of intense revival mode around the world to a time when Dony McGuire and Reba Rambo McGuire were a broken couple who let themselves, each other and all around them down. A couple who lived 'Hotel California' while residing in the midst of Christian music industry fame fell into the traps that any part of the music industry can provide.
Love shown through anointed people bring these two from trash to treasure--and Reba and Dony have allowed us to witness the transformation. As you read these pages full of 'Golden Nuggets' you will see a glimpse into a process of hope and recovery through Jesus' love for them. The end is thus far much greater than the beginning. I believe it is an anointed help for all who read it! Taste and see...
A Frighteningly Real Story Jan 10, 2002
It's not easy to give a concise review to a book to which you've contributed some of your own blood, sweat and tears ... but since I'm a professional writer, I'll try to be objective anyway. I am extremely proud of Reba and Judy - they have been incredibly vulnerable and genuine in this book, taking great risks to present some hard-hitting truths while telling a frighteningly real story. It is a shocking book ... and there are several people I intend to loan my own personal copy to read - "required reading," as it were - because I believe God speaks in this book even louder than either Reeb or Jude ever could. I'm sorry it didn't turn out the artistic way it was supposed to have been (you'll have to ask Judy what that means), but I know it is a tool that God will use, so that makes it worthwhile. If you cannot readily find "Follow The Yellow Brick Road" at your local Christian bookseller (insufficient marketing, in my opinion), ask them to order a copy for you ... or check it out online (it is published by Destiny Image). I am being absolutely sincere when I say this is a terrific book, one you definitely want to read and read again, with your Holy Spirit-tuned ear open to maximum volume. - Jeanne Halsey (unbiased sister), Blaine WA
Follow The Yellow Brick Road Stikes Gold Dec 4, 2001
Very rarely does a recording artist open up past their songs and share the actuality of their lives...but Reba Rambo-McGuire and co-author Judy Gossett take transparency to a new realm in this gut-level merging of autobiography and self-help. Tackling issues of addiction, sexual abuse and intimacy head-on, Reba and Judy combine the strength of her (Reba's)story with powerful life principles. FTYBR deserves it's place on the Self-Help shelves of the world's bookstores and it's author deserves her place with the Ilanya Vanzant's and Oprah Winfrey's for her inspirational and life changing message.
