This entire book is helpful and clearly founded on the author's personal experience, but I was amazed at the section on Hagar. At the time, I was preparing a devotional about her, and I found this book to be very helpful.
I really enjoyed this book. As a pastors wife, I too have been wounded by church people. Her incorporation of Hagar's story added to the points that were being made. Well worth your time to read this wonderful book!
I'm still reading this book and really enjoying it. Mrs. Lotz is showing me a side to the Hagar story I've never seen. I like that she is so honest about her own hurts....both those received and given.
Expected this to be a book on how to witness to people hurt by the institutional church, to draw them back to the Lord, but instead its quite personal, addressing individuals hurts in the author's life and your own. Far less "solutions" than I'd hoped, just compassion with a tone of unresolved hurt on her part.
