At the beginning of the book, Kelly describes a visit she had to a museum, and how one stone statue caught her eye. She immediately questioned how people could put trust and belief into a stone. That is when the Lord revealed to her that she does it all the time, just with different things. Minter states, “If I could display the images that splashed through my mind, you would have seen that statue turn into familiar faces from my life, career paths, and dreams. Not necessarily bad things, just things that had become detrimental because I had exalted them as gods, things that I believed could bring me life.”
One of my favorite parts in the book was when Kelly told the stories of Leah and Rachel who were two sisters from the Bible. Leah spent her life trying to gain the affections of Jacob because she continually felt unloved and wanted the kind of affection from him that Rachel had. However, Rachel spent her life discontent because she wanted lots of kids like Leah had, and lived her life jealous and unsatisfied because that desire was not fulfilled (To read more of Rachel and Leah’s story go to Genesis 29:31-30:24).Read more ›
I gave this book two stars rather than one because there are a few nuggets that shine through, where the author shares of herself and her experience in a way that allows you to glimpse the transforming power that she talks about. From these few examples, I can tell that the she has had a significant experience, but she does not share enough of herself to let us in on that experience. There's not enough to connect with the reader.
The VAST majority of the book is filled with generic, vague allusions to struggles, steps, and recoveries. You get little to no insight about what these struggles actually were, what functional idols she has let go of, what steps she has taken, and HOW she has been transformed. Instead, the overall impression is trite, impersonal, and superficial. While there are a few glimpses, it fails to really express the power that I do believe this author (and many of us who seek God) has experienced and longs to experience.
