I was attracted to this book because...
The story of Hosea and Gomer has always intrigued me. Through out my Christian life, I’ve experienced times of feeling invisible. This book came to me during one of those times.
This book was about
Jennifer Rothschild has skillful told the story of Hosea and Gomer through factual incidents from their lives interwoven with practical and relevant illustrations that re-enforce the Biblical truths from the book of Hosea.
This is not a verse by verse study of the Book of Hosea. The information is presented in a format where the truth of the story if faithfully presented. The real-life illustrations cause the reader to consider the biblical truth against the perspective of their own life.
Some of my thinking and beliefs about my own life have been challenged and a door was provide to allow me to make changes in my life.
Things I liked about this book
Even though the life illustrations were not similar to mine, I was able to relate them and the truth to my own life. I will think about what I learned from this reading and read it again in the future.
Why you should read this book
If you feel invisible to God, this book will open His truth for you know who you are to God in a powerful and loving way.
This book lived up to the back cover copy
It is very easy to read the story of Gomer and think that her experience and desires are far from mine. Jennifer brings the story alive in the everyday desires of women today.
I did receive a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I believe her teaching on the believer's identity in Christ is helpful. This is a doctrine that many Christians fail to grasp, and as a result, they end up living bound in chains of guilt and self-condemnation that God has released us from at the moment of salvation. Christ lived under the law, died and rose again that we could live freely by grace when we put our faith in Him.
I have read other books on the believer's identity in Christ, and I would categorize this one as entry-level reading. If you are a new believer, have not learned about your position in Christ, or do not consider yourself to be much of a reader, this is a good starting point. She teaches in a simple way, and you don't walk away wondering what she meant.
Beyond this book I would recommend two others, "Found in Him" by Elyse Fitzpatrick and "Shame Interrupted" by Ed Welch. They are excellent and go much deeper into the doctrine, really opening up the scriptures to teach how Christians should deal with their shame.
There are a couple things that Jennifer refers to in her book that make me squirm a bit and would cause me to be cautious in recommending the book to a new believer. She refers many times to self-esteem, which is a psychology term, not a biblical one. Scriptures do not teach anything about having a good or bad self-esteem. The one thing I can say about her references to self-esteem is that she never tells you in this book how to have a good self-esteem, which makes me a little less concerned about it. The other thing that didn't sit well with me was her statement, "You aren't redeemed because you are worthy, but because you are worth it." I feel like we're treading on thin ice a bit here. The only worth I have is because Jesus saved me, not why He saved me. Salvation is not about our worth to God. It is about showing the glory of God and the riches of His amazing grace. But maybe I'm splitting hairs.
My last observation of the book is that I felt concerned for the gals who read the book who are unbelievers and might think that everything she's saying applies to them too. Jennifer's teaching in Invisible only applies to believers who have put their faith in the Lord Jesus, and I'm not sure she makes that clear.
Although it's not the first book I would recommend to people on the topic of identity, it is useful and has its place.
