Wounded by God’s People: Discovering How God’s Love Heals Our Hearts
By Anne Graham Lotz / Zondervan
As the daughter of Billy and Ruth Graham, Lotz has lived among the faithful all her life—and knows that we are quite capable of hurting one another! Drawing wisdom from the biblical story of Abraham and Hagar, she explores the ways in which the wounded can become wounders themselves—and points us toward God’s merciful healing grace. 176 pages, hardcover from Zondervan.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through HarperCollins Christian Publishers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
I feel Wounded by God’s People can help those who have been wounded or are in fact wounders, put things in perspective and react in a way that would produce love and healing.
Throughout its pages I have seen a different perspective and what to watch out for so that I do not become a wounder or a victim of being wounded.
The book includes the story of Hagar as a biblical example of a wounder and wounded person. The story of Hagar is told with great detail and insight into what it must have been like for her during that time.
I would recommend this book to those who have been wounded, have wounded others, those wanting to avoid wounding others, or those wanting to be prepared in how to react to being wounded.
