I know, I know -- the Higher Power has a name and will work with us no matter what we call Him. But these two authors have taken a courageous step in a program where so many are "runaways" from the church, unaware that Christ did not die to start a religion. For me, it's all about having a personal relationship with the Maker of the Universe. It was news to me that I was created for that relationship, that all God ever wanted for me was freedom and safety and joy in Him. The one criticism I have of this book is that it seeks to be encouraging but sometimes comes across as bossy. Unfortunately, we can't control people, especially when it comes to Jesus. Unfortunately, "head knowledge" is "dead knowledge" until the Holy Spirit brings it to life.
My favorite part of this book is its emphasis on surrender. Twelve-Step recovery does teach surrender, but on The Solid Rock Road we actually know the One to whom we are surrendering and we acknowledge Him in all our ways. Evidence of His sweet embrace and excellent guidance is shared, and credit is given where credit is due. The title of this book might just as well have been, "The Higher Power Is A Person -- Who Knew?"
This is way too radical for many in recovery, but for those on The Solid Rock Road, it is Basic Information Before Leaving Earth (kudos to whoever thought up that acronym). I applaud the two authors, and I join them in pointing to God as best we can and praying for those He brings to our awareness.
When you become free by God's grace, it is the most unbelievable joy you will ever know. This book will help put everything into proper perspective. Everything worthwhile requires effort. Don't waste anymore precious time.
"I need a supernatural heart surgery and a divine brain transplant. I need the mind of Christ and the heart of God - the purest form of recovery"
May God bless you all.
If your recovering from a divorce. This book Is a real eye opener. A true must read for everyone.
The book covers a great deal of ground as it offers 10 principles for addicts to adopt in order to successfully continue in lifelong sobriety without relapse or excuses. The writers pull from a wealth of personal experiences, some of which are heartbreaking and terrifying, and the read is not only instructive but, for particular segments, deeply compelling. I walked away from this book not only with memorable tools but very useful anecdotes and real-life cautionary tales.
And be assured, in recovery, people will need them, especially if they are going through this book. "Follow the Solid Rock Road" is a pull-no-punches sort of program that demands a response. From an approach of sincere but tough love, the writers call persons in addiction to take full responsibility for sin before finding forgiveness and restoration through faith in Christ Jesus. They do this with a steady tone that challenges the reader while conveying care and empathy.
"Follow the Solid Rock Road" is the type of resource that can only come from the heart and mind of those who have recovered themselves, who bear the scars of sin and the renewal thereafter. I found myself highlighting passages regularly, and I feel like anyone leading a small group or starting a recovery addiction program at a church may find this tool to be useful and affective.
