5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! February 2, 2006
By LMS
Format:Paperback
I had no idea who Thom Gardner was before picking up this book. I've read several books like this recently and was pretty disappointed with most of them. This book however was different. I found this book to be incredibly insightful, convicting and helpful.

This book deals with a variety of issues including rejection, worthlessness, fear, shame and others. First, it tells the story of a Biblical character who experienced this barrier.

Then Thom exposes the lie underlying each barrier. Then he gives an emotional profile of each. Then, carefully each lie is refuted with biblical truth. This book will open your eyes and help you take a good look at yourself. This book will be life-changing. I know it definitely was for me. I still have a long ways to go in the healing process, but I feel this book has helped me take a giant step forward. This is a book to read, ponder, re-read and ponder some more. This book is practical and offers no quick fix.

There is also an excellent resource in the back for dealing with painful memories. I haven't done it with all the barriers yet, but I have done a couple and I can tell you, this technique works. I also like that this book avoids the psychobabble and self-help philosophy so common in books on healing, even Christian books. This book is soundly and solidly biblical.

If you are in need of spiritual and emotional healing and long to have a deeper, more intimate relationship with God, do yourself a favor. Buy a copy of this book. You won't be sorry. I highly recommend this book. It is one of the best I've ever read on the subject of emotional and spiritual healing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A different approach April 26, 2006
Format:Paperback
I spent years reading self-help books and was able to get some benefit from them, but Gardner's book approaches the subject of healing the wounds within us from a different angle. He goes to the core of the issue - not the addiction, not your present life problem, but the lies and wounds that have been obstacles in your life. He leads you back to pictures that you remember and then to God's presence which is where the real healing takes place. Gardner deals with 7 core obstacles: fear, rejection, worthlessness, shame, insecurity, defilement, and hopelessness. I also have the journal that he put together that takes you through a process that deals with these 7 core obstacles using scripture meditation. It's also a powerful resource that can be used alongside this book. I happened to meet the author recently and I was impressed with his sincerity and authenticity. I encourage you to read and use his resources. They are helping me on my journey to healing and wholeness!

5.0 out of 5 stars Why we may do and not do. March 18, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful sensitively written book on the issues that can unknowlingly hinder us. We all have certain beliefs that formed early in life. We may have inner unseen traps within our hearts. Tom Gardner's teaching is based from the Bible. He is transparent with his own life and others that he has ministered to, helping us to see. Through reading and prayer one can see why we do or don't do, achieve or don't achieve in our personal lives. Read with openess, let Tom show you how you are loved and accepted. The choice is yours to stay where you are, or be released.

in his book, healing the wounded heart, Thomas Gardner reveals the truth of God's heart when he created man. He created us for his pleasure, and for intimate communion and fellowship. Through man's fall from grace, sin, fear, hiding and seperation from God entered the world. man was wounded and broken through his sin of disobedience. The Good news is God sent his son to bring restoration and healing to all who would receive it. In his Book, Thomas Gardner shows us how to be healed and made whole through the healing presence of God and the truth found in his word.

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective, Godly Help for Painful Circumstances October 24, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Pure and simple, this book is a blessing. From a biblical framework, Thom Gardner provides advice designed to help those who struggle with painful emotions or strongholds that stem from traumatic experiences. Gardner exposes how these bonds can rob a believer of the joy, peace, and presence of God in his or her daily life. After reading this book, I have a broader understanding of the First Commandment and will be reading more of this author's books, because it lead me to an encounter with Christ that changed me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Discipleship Tool November 12, 2013
Format:Paperback
The book Healing the Wounded:Removing Obstacles to Intimacy with God Heart by Tom Gardner is a book that hit close to home. The book was a easy read and it kept the reader engaged. The book is broken down to three parts and it has a workbook in the back of the book. Tom starts off with a story that draws the reader in and through out the book he shares many stories of different people who he has ministered too. Allowing the reader to connect and relate to the feeling/emotions behind these different stories. Tom addresses seven different topics that keeps us from experience the Intimacy with God that we all long to experience. The seven areas are: Fear, Rejection, Worthlessness, Shame, Insecurity, Defilement, Hopelessness. Part One explains why these happen and draws the connecting Deuteronomy 7:1-7.

Part Two of the books is broken down to the seven topics and he links a story from the bible to each of these topics. Allowing the reader to connect these emotions to a person in the bible who we read about throughout the years. At the end each chapter Gardner directs you to go to the ministry guide portions where it's broken down to seven different areas where you are to spend time with God and allow him to reveals certain situations that caused these areas to plant unhealthy seeds.

This is a good discipleship tool and could be use for a personal use or a group within the church. Taking the time to let God show us the things in our lives that caused us to be a certain way can help us become better disciples. We are affected by the people and situation around us and this helps us to think back and allow healing. Forgiving those involved and providing biblical truth to hold on too as the person grow.
