Why we may do and not do. Mar 19, 2007
This is a wonderful sensitively written book on the issues that can unknowlingly hinder us. We all have certain beliefs that formed early in life. We may have inner unseen traps within our hearts. Tom Gardner's teaching is based from the Bible. He is transparent with his own life and others that he has ministered to, helping us to see. Through reading and prayer one can see why we do or don't do, achieve or don't achieve in our personal lives. Read with openess, let Tom show you how you are loved and accepted. The choice is yours to stay where you are, or be released.
A different approach Apr 26, 2006
I spent years reading self-help books and was able to get some benefit from them, but Gardner's book approaches the subject of healing the wounds within us from a different angle. He goes to the core of the issue - not the addiction, not your present life problem, but the lies and wounds that have been obstacles in your life. He leads you back to pictures that you remember and then to God's presence which is where the real healing takes place. Gardner deals with 7 core obstacles: fear, rejection, worthlessness, shame, insecurity, defilement, and hopelessness. I also have the journal that he put together that takes you through a process that deals with these 7 core obstacles using scripture meditation. It's also a powerful resource that can be used alongside this book. I happened to meet the author recently and I was impressed with his sincerity and authenticity. I encourage you to read and use his resources. They are helping me on my journey to healing and wholeness!
Awesome! Feb 3, 2006
I had no idea who Thom Gardner was before picking up this book. I've read several books like this recently and was pretty disappointed with most of them. This book however was different. I found this book to be incredibly insightful, convicting and helpful.
This book deals with a variety of issues including rejection, worthlessness, fear, shame and others. First, it tells the story of a Biblical character who experienced this barrier.
Then Thom exposes the lie underlying each barrier. Then he gives an emotional profile of each. Then, carefully each lie is refuted with biblical truth. This book will open your eyes and help you take a good look at yourself. This book will be life-changing. I know it definitely was for me. I still have a long ways to go in the healing process, but I feel this book has helped me take a giant step forward. This is a book to read, ponder, re-read and ponder some more. This book is practical and offers no quick fix.
There is also an excellent resource in the back for dealing with painful memories. I haven't done it with all the barriers yet, but I have done a couple and I can tell you, this technique works. I also like that this book avoids the psychobabble and self-help philosophy so common in books on healing, even Christian books. This book is soundly and solidly biblical.
If you are in need of spiritual and emotional healing and long to have a deeper, more intimate relationship with God, do yourself a favor. Buy a copy of this book. You won't be sorry. I highly recommend this book. It is one of the best I've ever read on the subject of emotional and spiritual healing.
