About the Author
Catherine Marshall (19141983) wrote more than twenty books, including the best-sellers Christy and Beyond Our Selves. After Peter Marshall¹s death, she raised their son, Peter, and some ten years later married Guideposts executive editor Leonard LeSourd and raised four more children.

Her earlier works--and perhaps some later ones--don't veer off into the danger zone a this one does, so steer clear of it. BEYOND OURSELVES remains a well-written, well thought out examination of faith.
Catherine Marshall's chapter 3, "The Oughts and the Anys" was the beginning of my conscience's eye-opener. It was a real "knee-jerk!" I literally went to my knees begging God to show me who I hadn't forgiven. The revelation came the next morning as I awoke. Every time something triggered an old negative memory of someone's offensive action or something I allowed to greatly annoy me, I would relive the entire incident, detail by detail. Yet, God forgives me my mistakes and refuses to recall them. I had some real homework to do!
The next chapter that completed my moment of truth was entitled, "The Law of the Generations." It brought me to the conclusion of why my prayers for my son were not being answered. Here is a quote from a list that a friend shared with Catherine:
"For now, do not ask anything for your son. He is God's child as well as yours; God loves him even more than you do. Turn him over completely to that light of Christ within him.
"Whenever you think of your son, picture the light spreading as God does His own work in this boy."
When I remembered that God wants me to forgive as He forgives me, and that He can't listen to my requests unless I do, this book has changed my prayer life.
