Book Review: My Own Worst Enemy
I was particularly drawn to some great one liners and segments in the book that really spoke to my situation, without the feminist undertones:
When we see God act in our moments of faith stretching, we sometimes translate "our insufficiency in unimportance." p. 117
"The obedient life is less about our skill at guessing the right place to put our feet at each moment and more about knowing who we are made to be and offering ourselves to God without reservation, wherever our feet happen to land." p. 232
This book presents very interesting points of discussion, but is too dangerous for faith seekers. I would only put this into the hands of women who have the maturity to put it up to the test of scripture. It is too self absorbed and self seeking glory than it is about living a life that Christ has asked us to live.
As a Bethany House Publisher's reviewer, I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.
