This book wasn't an easy read. It wasn't the kind of book that I could quickly speed through, as is my favorite types of reads. It was a harrowing journey of a woman descending into her life's darkest depths, and that shouldn't be an easy read.
Margaret begins her year like any other. She decides not to do traditional yearly resolutions, instead picking a word to meditate on for the year. The year that God brings to her is "joy." Little does she know that in a few short months she'll be challenged with such an incredible depth of that often ambiguous Christian-ese.
The book is written well as different chapters acting as different aspects of joy that Margaret learned during her battle with breast cancer. She sets up each point with a personal story from her life as well as that of a biblical character exhibiting this aspect of joy.
This is a touching, intimate look of a dehumanizing sickness faced by people each and every day. I appreciated the gripping look into its difficulty and feel like I have a better compassion for others going through such trials.
The main points about joy are written in bold or italics, so it is easy for the read to "get" and chew on later. One of the aspects that I found most useful was the additional resources at the end of the book. There were useful tips for what not to say for someone who is going through such a crisis, and ways too help. Margaret understands that more Christians want to help, but often say the wrong things despite genuine intentions.
More than whimsy, joy is a weapon we use to fight life's battles (12).Read more ›
As I began to read the very first page of the except, containing simply the (reviews), I read this:
"When you feel stuck in the rut of discouragement, there’s no greater gift than rediscovering joy. With profound insight and poignant grace, Margaret Feinberg takes you on a journey toward joy that will reawaken your heart to the glee that comes with knowing God. You can’t read this book and stay the same." (Pete Wilson, senior pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, TN and author of Plan B and Let Hope In)
I thought about what interesting timing to come across a book about joy, as I have just recognized how discouraged and stuck I feel, and how my prayer has been for rescue and help in the midst of that. What a coincidental discovery on this day, and what a welcome interlude on this quiet day those three chapters were.Read more ›
