I have mixed feelings about this book. I see a lot of value in what the author is trying to do, but my opinion of the book itself is that the delivery was not up to par. For one, I got a lot more out of the chapter titles than I got out of the chapters themselves, and for two, I noticed through the book that many of the chapters were turning the attention on me instead of on my children, and I really wanted to be thinking more about my children as I read this book than about me.
For me, the chapter titles gave a lot to think about, but I found many of the chapters to seem kind of watery and not very deep. There were a few chapters that I got a lot out of, but not enough that I would say I loved the book.
Another thing, which some others have mentioned, is that some of the chapter titles seemed a bit harsh. Rather than praying that bad things to happen our kids so they can learn needed lessons, the book would have read a lot ‘nicer’ if it was worded to be praying that they learn certain lessons when bad things happen to them.
I did get a lot out of this book, but most of what I got out of it were the things I pondered and thought about on my own after reading the chapter titles. Some of the chapters, as I said, I did find rather helpful, but there were so many that I didn’t find helpful that it’s hard to be excited about the book as a whole.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
