I didn't know what to first expect, when I started reading, "Walking into Walls:5 Blind Spots that Block God's Work in You".

Was it self-help?

Is it a motivational?

What blind spots are we even talking about, but as I begun to read through Stephen Arterburn's book, I was impressed by, not just the style of writing, which was very laid back and conversational (always a good thing), but although this, like any book, is never a substitute for actual, face to face therapy, that is beneficial to work

Definition of insanity - doing the same things over and over and expecting different results.

I felt like it was mostly geared to victims of past childhood abuse, which may be why I did not connect with it so much. It would be a go ...more

Sometimes it can feel like you are constantly walking into walls. You make it through one tough situation. Then, wham you find yourself in a similar situation. After a while, it’s hard to see any way out.

Some pretty useful information in this book, that forces you to evaluate where you have put up walls & how that can effect God's work in and through you. I also enjoyed the additional study guide and videos available.

Every one should read this book. It really allows you to reflect on your life and the walls that you have definitely built that are keeping you from living up to your joys in life. READ IT!

I didn't agree with everything in this book but overall...Stephen Arterburn makes you aware of the walls we create and the solutions to break down those walls.

Great book about how to get healthy emotionally. Lots of great practical, Biblical advice. Well worth the read. Loved the chapter on how to get unstuck.

Good stuff for dealing with past pain and other issues. Not as good as his Every Man series but still very useful.
