Reviews - What do customers think about Into Abba's Arms?
Really helpful Nov 11, 2006
I thought this book was very helpful and gave keen insight into the love God has for us. It gives many suggestions to enter into His presence and bask in His love. I found it a real encouragement.
Accepting Our Acceptance in Christ May 8, 2005
"Into Abba's Arms" is a passionately written, biblical guide for spiritual intimacy with the God who calls Himself "the Father of the Fatherless." Author Sandra Wilson begins the journey by exploring the cavity in the human soul--a cavity that Augustine described as "God-shaped" and that I like to think of as "God-sized." "Why do we have a hole in our soul?" Wilson encourages us to ask. Like Augustine, she finds her answer in the biblical truth that we were created for an intimate relationship with the Creator of the universe.
Wilson also follows in the steps of Martin Luther who insisted that Christian understand who they are in and to Christ. Or, as I like to summarize it, we must learn to "accept our acceptance" in Christ.
She also travels the path of John Calvin, who taught that true knowledge consists of knowing God, knowing ourselves as bearers of God's image, and knowing how to relate to the God whose image we bear. Like Augustine, Luther, and Calvin, Wilson realizes that life is not about "self-acceptance for the sake of self-love," but rather about "acceptance in Christ for the sake of glorifying God and being empowered to minister to others."
Through "Into Abba's Arm," Wilson leads you home to the home you always longed for--a home where Abba, Daddy, God the Father, is your most cherished Friend, and a home where you live the life you were intended to live from eternity past.
Reviewer: Dr. Robert W. Kellemen is the author of "Soul Physicians: A Theology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," "Spiritual Friends: A Methodology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," and the forthcoming "Sacred Companions: A History of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction."
I found the key to acceptance and security in God's love!!! Sep 25, 1999
Never, never have I read any book that so perfectly diagnosed my condition. What a loving God we have - and how very much He longs to tell us. But the masks we wear to prevent that relationship is tragic. Sandy Wilson pictures it all so well - and in a gentle and loving way. She gives great encouragement that an intimate God is just a breath away - if we seek. Thank you dear Sandy, for your ministry.
A must for anyone who desires a full relationship with God. Jun 7, 1999
It is not often that I call a book must reading, but this one certainly is. Sandra Wilson has written in such a way as to draw any reader closer to God. It is especially good for anyone with any kind of sense of having been left alone and lonely. But is is also a must for those who believe that they are closer to God than ever. I have reccomended it to many of my counseling clients and have bought and given copies to all of my children, my husband and my parents. If you don't read anything else this year, read this.
A MUST for anyone who wants to draw closer to God May 20, 1999
This is the best book I have ever read on seeking a personal relationship with God. I have read it for myself, given one to every member of my family and several friends and am recommending it almost daily to people I see in my Christian counseling practice. A book for anyone who has ever wondered where God is and haven't we all?
