Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Ethridge, bestselling author of the Every Woman's Battle series, begins this book on God's limitless love by recounting the horrific moment when she accidentally killed a woman while behind the wheel. Ethridge's vivid memory of the sorrow she caused as a new teen driver doesn't stop at the tragedy's harrowing details but focuses on the amazingly gracious forgiveness and affirmation she received from the victim's spouse. So sets the stage for this guide where Ethridge uses generous portions of scripture to convince doubt-ridden, wounded women of their intrinsic worth to God. To demonstrate, she draws upon the spiritual metaphor of a love relationship: falling in love, a tender proposal, the forsaking of all others, love languages, wedding surprises and the tossing of the bouquet. Particularly poignant is when she shares her personal epiphany that God had transformed her greatest stumbling block—that of her previous sexual sins—into the vehicle for demonstrating how God had changed her. Ethridge challenges women to accept the "wedding" gifts from a loving God who offers redemption from the past, resurrection power for today and a heavenly home in eternity. While the book is engaging and soulful, many of Ethridge's personal accounts have been published elsewhere and might feel stale to some loyal readers. (June 19)

Praise for Completely His

“Shannon Ethridge’s life exhibits God’s transforming power.  Her response to tragedy will guide others who struggle through dark valleys, to find the light of hope that is in Christ.” 
Max Lucado, bestselling author

“When the worst has happened, only time can bring perspective and turn trauma into triumph. Shannon Ethridge is an incredible  woman who has a story to tell and a passion to share. Through experiences that would level most, she has risen as a Lover of Jesus who can speak to the heart of every woman. Completely His calls even the most timid or scarred to a place of deep, sweet relationship with the One who patiently waits for His Beloved to lean in and trust Him. I loved the book. I love Shannon’s heart.”
Jan Silvious, author of Foolproofing Your Life and Big Girls Don’t Whine

“Insightful and daring, Completely His so challenged me to look at myself honestly and ask ‘Am I all yours, God?’ Shannon is completely vulnerable as she shares a longing for God in every area of her life and a step-by-step example of how to walk with Him in all aspects of daily living. This message is encouraging, life-changing, and much-needed by every one of us.”
Shaunti Feldhahn, best-selling author of For Women Only and For Men Only

Format: Paperback
The lead title in the new Loving Jesus Without Limits series by Shannon Ethridge invites women to connect with God through a personal relationship. COMPLETELY HIS is written to remind readers that God loves them lavishly and irrevocably. He treasures them beyond measure and chooses them to be connected to Him.

The book opens with a personal story of killing another woman in a car accident while still in high school. Ethridge shares the feelings that she should have been the one killed, though she didn't receive even a single scratch. She was further shocked when she found out that the husband of the deceased, Gary, was concerned for her and wanted to meet her. His warmth and kindness were almost too much for the young Ethridge to handle. On that fateful day, Gary told Shannon, "I am passing [my wife's] legacy of being a godly woman on to you. I want you to love Jesus without limits, just like Marjorie did. I want you to let Him use you for His glory, Shannon."

Those words have never left Ethridge. And the experience still reminds her that nothing is beyond God's redemption. He can take the ugliest of situations and turn them into something beautiful. In fact, she describes the accident as a "burning bush" experience that welcomed her into a deeper relationship with God. She no longer desires to "do the minimum" to get to heaven, but instead wants to love Jesus without limits.

Throughout the book, Ethridge tells stories from her own life and experiences. Some are tender and serious, while others are funny --- like the time she discovered Miss E, the family cat, in the dryer. She also draws from other women who have shared their stories.

Ethridge says that she pursues the presence of God each day. In the shower she'll thank God for clean, hot water.

This book has awoken my heart to the intense love that God has for me and His endless pursuit to aid me in becoming completely his. The author uses great analogies and personal testimonies to drive relevant points home. It has inspired me to fall madly, deeply, and completely in love with the One who loved me first and will love me last. It is well written and hard to put down until I was done, then, it left me craving more!

How could someone ever love me after I destroyed their life as they knew it? Perhaps these were Shannon Ethridge's thoughts after her life took a dramatic turn as a high school junior. A car accident which she was involved in changes her life and that of another family. In her book "Completely His Loving Jesus Without Limits," Shannon tells the story of how she felt when she met face to face with the widower of the woman who she killed. This becomes a major turning point in her life and the start of a very encouraging friendship.

When Shannon experiences the unconditional love that Gary Jarstfer shows her even after killing his wife, shows her a love which she has never known. Gary's example of a Christ-like love is very notable. This love should be a parallel to the love which Jesus Christ had for us. John 15:13 states "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."

It is not without many struggles that Shannon comes to terms with her life changing experience. Shannon clearly states that she has gained a deep understanding of God's character and the impact of Christ's passion on our life. He died so we may live! This is a very inspirational book in which God has taken a very dark period in her life and changed it into something very beautiful. I feel that everyone who has ever struggled with a difficult period in their life or is dealing with it currently, could learn much about their Savior through this book. Shannon notes many Scripture references to bring her points across and make it much easier to understand what she intends to convey. Gary Jarstfer did not only show her unconditional love and forgiveness but also was very instrumental in her knowing that she is completely His!

This is a book about our relationship with Jesus as the bride of Christ and what that bridal relationship should look like. To be courted by the lover of my soul...to be wooded and pursued by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Redeemed from bondage and purchased into the everlasting covenant of marriage. I am a cherished bride and possession. The apple of His eye. And even though I am an unfaithful adulteress he pursued me anyway. The God of the universe is my own husband and bought me with his own life. A love story. I am the object of my husbands desire and he wants all of me. He pursues me with intensity, passion and deliberate purpose. There is hunger and longing and anticipation. He delights in me. My soul response should be to fall head over heels in love with him. And in that love I will long to obey and connect with him...to rest in his arms and recline in his love.

This is a wonderful message and I wept many hot bitter tears just daring myself to believe it. The God of my youth did not like me. He was an extension of parental authority and a chronic score keeper who was out to get me. I have burned out on the judgment and condemnation message...it no longer moves me. But this got to me. This broke a heart of stone. And now the miracle of miracles is happening...I am starting to believe that I am loved and wanted and valued and cherished and esteemed and planned and that I have purpose and that I am not a mistake.

Worthwhile read for anyone coming out of a legalism and condemnation background.
