Item description for The Journey by Shirley Borgialli...
Overview Do you desire freedom from religious bondage? Are you frustrated with rules? The Journey is a true story that chronicles an extraordinary search for the existence of God. The story begins with her ancestors from whom she has received blessings and cursings. She discovers that dark, unseen forces have her under surveillance, watching for an opportune time to bring her into temptation and deception. Her carnal nature falls prey to the influence of ungodly temptations, and she is lured into the world of fleeting pleasure and sin. Seeking relief from her dilemma catapults her into a smorgasbord of erroneous religious groups. As she adheres to the rules and rituals of religion, she realizes that keeping rules does not tame the carnal beast within. She exchanges her life of sin for one of self-righteousness, false humility, and counterfeit Christianity. Family casualties become a byproduct of her journey, and they are left behind in the tumultuous aftermath. Who can rescue her? Only One-Jesus Christ! Discovering the truth, her journey takes a sharp turn. She realizes she has not been following God's true path, but man's interpretation of it. She undergoes spiritual surgery that removes the false belief systems she had embraced, and she finds the true freedom that Christ proclaimed: "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free."

The Journey Jun 14, 2004
What an INCREDIBLE book! I've been telling family and friends about this amazing book since I first opened it's pages. My enthusiam has only grown as I've read through more of the intensely, captivating "can't lay it down" pages. With a few more pages to read, I truly dread reading the last one as I want it to continue on and on! This is a RARE find. This is not a shallow book, but a book of great depth with amazing insight and spiritual guidance. What a story! What a life! The honesty of the author is almost unheard of in this day and age. She doesn't mince words...she doesn't cover for herself. Amazingly refreshing! When you, the reader, at last lay this book aside, you will feel a true kinship with the author and her family. After reading this book, it is now my desire to have the author make a personal appearance in our town to witness to her truly amazing and exciting...(and I do mean exciting)....story. I know of no one who would disagree with me in my accessment of this book. The Holy Spirit speaks to one's heart in guidance through the pages of this book. Way to go, Shirley Borgialli! You are an incredible author!
Very Eye-Opening! Aug 2, 2003
This book is an excellent, true-to-Scripture account of a woman's quest for true freedom in Christ. Every scripture was used in its truest application and aligned perfectly with Shirley's life. Truly the Holy Spirit breathed life into this book. DO read this book. It will open your eyes to truth and how God works in our lives even when we are not always walking faithfully with Him! All of us can relate to parts of her "Journey."
The perseverance for truth and freedom in Christ. May 24, 2003
This is a sincere and transparent story of a woman's thirst and hunger for God's truth. Shirley Borgialli opens up her life to the reader, and this book is a welcomed literary find to all of us who have made similar choices and have given into our own selfish needs and wants or have followed the enemy's wiles. However, this story of her life shows how God is always in control of our walk, and when our heart desires His true will and plan, He will always show it to us. She exposes the spiritual abuse that she has experienced first hand, and how the Lord turned those experiences around to help her grow and become closer to Him. Shirley uses scriptural passages and truths throughout her book and the reader can definitely see that God inspired each chapter she wrote. I couldn't put this book down once I began reading it. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who isn't afraid of the truth.

This book is an excellent view of one woman's Christian walk. It draws the reader in with her ancestors and keeps them captivated through her life. It is a great testimony and is very well written. A great read! I highly recommend it!
