I was so surprised by the author's ability to bestow on the reader all the character of addictive behavior, co-dependency and survivors of such. You will find inward biblical values with an outward fairy tale cover, ready and able to challenge anyone who has run from God and denied him, to a place of total acknowlegement and surrender. After this book, if you don't see yourself and don't surrender, you are pretty much the toughest skinned animal alive. You will get an understanding of God's love, his longing for us, His grace and compassions that fail not, while you will be able to sympathize with the unfortunate predicaments you could not escape and those you thought you had escaped only to find yourself in deeper strongholds and the intoxication of your prior loathings. You will understand who, you or others, are responsible for your choices that bind you. Everyone should read this book, honestly. It is A must read for someone that has been off of any intoxicating substance for more than a minute and an excellent resource to present to those still using in order to confront them with human nature, themselves and God. If you want to grab someone's attention, witness the breakdown that will follow, after reading "The Dragon". All the anyone had or has toward God will be confronted. They will see God in a way so real, they must realize that he has not been fairly portrayed to them. Evidence that the enemy has lied to them throughout their lives springs up to overthrow the life-long work of the gainsayer we who have been lead astray are coming home. The stories are too, too awesome for a novice like me to describe. I wanted to do my best to share my opinion so others will read this book. I hope I have done a just job.Read more ›

Parables for Personal Growth is a collection of short stories, parables, which are symbolic fairy tale type stories that address universal human problems of suffering, sin, victimization. Because they are written in fairy tale format, they help the reader to identify in a non-threatening way with hurtful things that they may have done or have been victimized by. I find this book to be very helpful in Christian counseling for many issues and strongly recommend it for the top of your bookshelf for any Christian that counsels others.
