it was ok

I enjoyed reading the story of Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman's life, and my heart grieved along with her in the loss of her precious child. I must say though, that her theology in places disturbed me. Having lost a child of my own (to cancer at age 14), I thought I might relate to her, but I did not. To me, she came across as ungrounded and mystical in places. I do appreciate her writing the book though- I'm sure it took a lot of courage. I have always loved the theology of Steven's music but didn't find the same perspective here that is found in his music. I guess they are very different from each other, which she does point out. Not trying to trash this book -I'm sure my opinion of this book is not as most in Christendom. So read it and decide for yourself what you think!

Ladonna Thanks. That is interesting about her theology. I'm glad you are on goodreads. It's nice to find some Christians on here. Now I can ask you for some good Christian books to read.
