Reviews - What do customers think about Temptation?
Life, God, Test Mar 25, 2007
I really enjoyed Temptation. I purchased this book for a friend after I read it. She came back to me and thanked me because her marriage was similar. I was unaware of a sequel but will be purchasing it as well. This book goes to show how friends will stab you in your back. Indeed, we are all human but it hurts the most when its a Kyla vs. Jasmine (Kyla's childhood best friend ) scenerio. Victoria Murray did an awesome job at working out a broken relationship between the spouses.
OUTSTANDING!! Mar 22, 2007
This book was outstanding. Victoria took issues that people go through in their everyday life and provided answers, and gave hope. Once I started I could not put it down, and I have been telling people about this book in hopes that they'll go out an purchase it because it can really help someone out. Excellent read!!
A Good Read! Dec 19, 2006
Yes, christians have faults and temptations too! This is a great read. If you are prepared to stay awake all nite then go ahead and grab this book. V.C. Murray painted a picture of imperfect people seeking and loving a perfect God, and making mistakes along the way. It paints a picture of remdemption, love, respect, anger and ultimately forgiveness. A must read for anyone who's ever been hurt before.
Forgiveness Doesn't Come Easy to Man Oct 26, 2006
We're human and not God. It takes sincere prayer and the love of God to forgive. Cheating on your spouse is truly difficult to forgive. Look at it like this: In this day and time, one could contract AIDS or another STD. And if this happens, it seems virtually impossible to forgive your spouse. All it takes is one time to be unfaithful. This was a well written story on forgiveness. It was an enjoyable read and I recommend it for your reading pleasure.
What God brings together no man can bring apart Aug 28, 2006
This just goes to show how with prayer anything can be worked out. Some people are just out to ruin anything just because they don't have it. This book proved that point. Jasmine was a truly messed up individual who needed God in her life. Without God your life is incomplete and it makes you do mischievous stuff. Anyone thinking of pulling a fast one should read this book to get a thorough understanding of how God works.
