As another reviewer noted, there are a lot of typos in this book. There are errors in punctuation, spelling, and layout. It doesn't seem to have had an editor at the publisher. Many of the devotions begin with definitions of several words from the day's scripture, which soon become repetitive and tedious to read. I think a true editor would have noted that and asked the author to vary the way she begins each devotion.
There have been several times I've turned to my study Bible in order to make sense of the day's scripture, as the author's commentary didn't seem helpful or relevant. In those cases, the notes in my study Bible helped me make sense of the passage (as it relates to our parenting challenges) where the devotional itself did not.
The biggest difficulty I have, though, is that the author seems to believe that autism is God's perfect will for our children and that He WANTS our children to have autism so that we can glorify Him and have a wonderful testimony about His power. These ideas are referred to in many of the devotions. What kind of God would want His children to suffer? Yes, He allows it to happen, and He can make good things out of these terrible circumstances.Read more ›
As you read this book and even pray through it, please remember, God loves us and knows the big picture for our lives. The diagnosis of Autism is NOT a death sentence, only a new experience.
