There is a renewed hunger for people to move in supernatural power, reflected even in children's books, especially the wildly successful Harry Potter's children's series emphasizing magic ...more

This book is pretty intense and pretty incredible. To be honest, the writing style isn't the greatest, but it's the content that really spoke to me. The author uses the metaphor of the potter and the clay (and much more) to describe the seasons of a Christian's life and their relationship with Jesus. While the analogy breaks down in parts, it's a really powerful illustration of what is happening in the spiritual world (how Satan tries to attack and derail us) and how God is teaching and refining ...more

Forsaken is a broken clay vessel in Comfort Cove. This book is about the struggle for her soul as she is descarded on the Potter's Field. It is about her struggles for wholeness and restoration. Through many trials she develops intimacy; receives healing from her past pain and brokenness, and learns that Master Potter desires her even in her weakness. No one is too broken to be healed and used by God. A must read. A wonderful allegory as well as well written reality.

Wonderful allegory. Had the pleasure of hearing the author speak several times before she passed on. She wrote a prophetic word in the front of my book. I loved the way she talked about the Holy Spirit...she didn't use the article "the" when referring to him. Her death was a great loss to the Christian church, but some of her lives on in her books...

Have you ever thought how disappointed the Potter must feel when the clay refuses to yield to His design? Or His delight, as the vessel submits to the pressure of His hands as He shapes it. The Lord, speaking to Israel through the prophet Jeremiah asks, "O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel" (Jeremiah 18:6 KJV).

In her book Master Potter, award-winning professional potter, Jil

Words cannot truly detail the intensity this book walked me through. The storyline is powerful and personal. If you love God, if you are hungry to know Him more, if your desire is to walk with Him, or you wonder whether you can even keep going with Him, this book is worth the read. It will grip you and opens ones imagination and also ones heart to the experience and expectation of being a child and bride of our God.

I loved Master Potter. It was as if Jesus was speaking to me, calling me, and declaring His glorious love for me through these pages. This is a truly anointed book with the power to impact, transform, and bring revelation to all who have a willing heart to receive it. This is truly a journey - a journey of your heart and soul right alongside Beloved's (so don't expect it to be a quick read :). In almost every chapter there is something deep from the heart of God to be gained, relished, and rumin ...more

I have never found "Christian" or so-called inspirational fiction very interesting or even well written. It just doesn't have the profundity of the source texts or commentaries or non-fictional stories. It always over simplifies the mystery in the message and in the end isn't anything more than bad fiction. It always tends to ignore the complications that inhabit real life and even scripture. This book commits all those "sins" and isn't even a very good allegory. This was another book people tol ...more

I really had a hard time with Austin's allegory. The first 40-50 pages was pulling teeth for me, then parts got really good and others were a little dull. She bounced back from Beloved and others being a human to being clay vessels, which left me a little confused. I don't think this writing style is a strength for Austin, but overall it was an ok book and it did have carry some good biblical truths about facing hardships.

Both of the Master Potter books touched my heart deeply with the way Jill Austin describes the journey through life as a Christian and how God molds and shapes us. This is all done through a parable like story that is hard to put down.
