Book Review

 After a hardy rainstorm filled all the potholes in the
 streets and alleys, a young mother watched her two little
 boys playing in the puddles through her kitchen  window.

 The older of the two, a five year old lad, grabbed his
 sibling by the back of his head and shoved his face into
 one of the water holes.  As the boy recovered and stood
 laughing and dripping,  the mother was running towards
 them in a panic.
Why on earth did you do that to your little brother?!
 she says as she shook the older boy's shoulders in anger
 combined with relief.
 We were just playing church mommy, he said. And I
 was just  baptizing the name of the Father,
 the Son and in the Hole-he-goes.


This is a review of a book written by Lysa TerKeurst. Her new book,
Uninvited, deals with rejection. It is brutally honest, yet there are sprinkles of humor and wit.

The enemy wants us to feel rejected . . . left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ’s powerful love.

In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences with rejection—from the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father to the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over.

With biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa helps you:Release the desire to fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God-honoring ways to process your hurt.
Overcome the two core fears that feed our insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging
Stop feeling left out and start believing that "set apart" does not mean "set aside."
End the cycle of perceived rejection by refusing to turn a small incident into a full blown issue.

Through the pages of Uninvited, you will be taken on a journey of finding the acceptance and love you’ve always longed for and start to pick up the pieces that maybe you’ve been trying to put back together for years. You’ll laugh, cry, and best of all discover that with Jesus you are safe, forever accepted, forever held, completely loved, and always invited in.
much love, Dennis
