Freeing tangled Hearts.

Freeing Tangled Hearts by Dolores Kimball     When a wound needs to be treated, we use both the stinging antiseptic and the soothing balm. The antiseptic cleanses it, a vital first step. The pain of the cleansing reminds us we are wounded. The balm smoothed over the wound protects it and eases the pain and the comfort of the balm reminds us we are healing.  As Christians we know Scripture is both the antiseptic and the balm. Free Tangled Hearts applies both in the best way.

 I read this 159 page book in one day. "Finished already?" A friend asked. "No, not really. This is the sort of book one never finishes." And this is true. I think I need this book close by, to keep re-reading.

A true friend would comfort you in your uncertainty and doubts with the certainty of Christ and His promises. This book does that.

A true friend will tell you about sin they see in you, and then help you to seek Forgiveness and healing. This book does that.
I can see this book having a place on my shelf of essential books on Biblical Womanhood.

This book reminds me of Spurgeon. He told us that our sins must die, every one, and confronted our hypocrisy in believing our pet sin could live while others crucified theirs. "Shall sin be fondled and yet pardoned?" No. Sin forsaken is proof of sin forgiven. How though can we tear the sins away? Then Spurgeon points us to the Cross, which makes this deed possible, and gives us hope to continue our pilgrimage.
This book is the same sort of book.

I am blessed to have received this book from Cross Focused Reviews.
