This is a word I use to describe Kasey Van Norman's new book, Named by God. It is extremely difficult in this psychology-saturated culture to find a book with a Biblical Perspective to help the hurting. Mrs. Van Norman's book does this.
She is clear in her presentation of the problem to all hurts in life. Sin.
She is clear in her presentation of the remedy of all hurts in life. Jesus.
Named by God reminds those who have been hurt, even deep, deep hurt, that Jesus is the Healer. The author journeys through her own hurt, which was mighty significant, to help the reader embrace the truth from God's Word. This is where true change comes.
Kasey writes in a very gentle and compassionate way that will tell the reader she really understands, but then gives the reader the answer to freedom. As I read this, I saw the path from hurt to healing come alive; the problem to the cure; the pain to servant hood and bonding with the body of Christ.
Anyone, wherever you may be in these equations can use this as a great resource.
I received a free copy of this book as part of the Tyndale Blogging Network.
