Read full description of the books:
Having come through a time of darkness myself, and seeing many friends struggle, I thought it would be a good book to read. However, I was disappointed. The only reason why I finished the book at all was because of the fact that I received a free copy of this book from the publisher (Bethany House) in exchange for an honest review.
I'm sure the examples that were given by the authors of their own disappointments and struggles deeply painful for them, but it only added to my frustration with "white picket fence" Christians who can't get out of the proverbial "Christian ghetto" or "the Christian bubble," to see the "real world."
As some of the reviewers of this book has mentioned, Ted Kluck is especially egregious. His sections feel as if he's trying to convince people that he is "all that," rather than truly processing his "darkness." I have not read other works by him, but if this is a sample of his writing, I'm not sure that I would read anything by him. The only reason why I didn't give this book one star is because Ronnie Martin seems to understand this subject, and his writing is, just a little better (notice I said, "just a little" - at least he doesn't keep pointing out how great of a writer he is).
As I re-read this review, I find myself wanting to erase it all, because I don't want to be negative. But I did promise to be "honest" in my review to the publisher. Also, I recently had a conversation with my young girls about self-esteem. When I said something negative to one of them, they all jumped at me to say, "Dad, you're hurting her self-esteem!" To that I answered, "I would rather hurt your self-esteem now than have you be crushed by disappointment later that you really are not all that good, and people have been lying to you."
