Top Customer Reviews
Thibodeaux's book, which he describes as a reference manual, includes a generous introduction with suggestions for praying with "God I Have Issues," praying with scripture, and praying with emotions.
For personal prayer and reflection, this book could serve somewhat as a spiritual guide, albeit there is the absence of contact with another God-listening person. However, barring the availability of a spiritual director who is able to guide your inner movements, the writing here provides something to reflect on.
Each chapter in themselves are not long and each is easy reading. Topics range from addiction to being too busy, having doubts, being grateful, feeling guilty, hurt, jealous, judgmental, lonely, parenting and singlehood issues to being weary and worried. At the end of each chapter are "Prayer Pointers" that take the reflection one step further. Sure, there are other such books with Scripture and reflection but I find God, I have Issues very down-to-earth and relevant.
For example, in the chapter, "God, I'm in awe of your creation", it begins with St. Francis of Assisi's "Praise be you, my Lord, with your creatures, especially Sir Brother Sun..." Then the author shares one of his journal entries in the year January 2000.Read more ›
