Thought-provoking, enlightening and above all hopeful. Highly recommended., 2 Nov 2012
I thought this book was excellent! To start I feel it only fair to admit I am not a complete book worm but due to this I only read books that are highly recommended and are sold as life changing, impacting or affirming, and this book does all of that. Its confessional nature is intriguing and results in the reader wanting to find out more. The personal way in which it is written helps the reader to identify with not only the authors' story, but also encourages them to reflect on their own personal experience and the gifts that they indeed may posses. I found this book both revelatory and celebratory and it gave me hope to see issues often swept under the carpet by the various churches being discussed in such an unashamed, real and somewhat public way. This is a must-read for anyone interested in theology in relation to identity or personal experience, the hope that can be found in darkness and the true awesomeness of God.
