Best book on rejection I've ever read
October 21, 2018
I am a voracious reader, and this one ranks in my top 10 for sure. I read it at a time I was broken and emotionally raw with pain. Had two small strokes, my craft group at church decided they didn't want me anymore, convinced their two campus Lutheran Brethren Church to have me 'trespassed' (I had never been disruptive, threatening .... all I ever did was ask them to meet with me - Matthew 18) and when they filed a police report after my audio Bible app went off in church one Sunday, I knew I had to move. I moved 800 miles away to a state where I didn't know a single person to start my life over at the age of 62. I'd only had one failed relationship in my life before this, and I absolutely DID NOT know how to navigate the pain of this level of rejection. I read some excellent books on Trauma and PTSD and Christine Caine's book Unexpected is also excellent. But this one resonated with me to the deepest recesses of my brokenness. I cried through most of it but they were cleansing tears. Not only were here words wise and biblical, but it helped me tremendously to know that someone identified with the level of pain I have experienced.
