I got an advanced copy for free. That said, it's not going to effect what I say in my review!

If you've read the Eden series, then I think you'll find that this fourth book (although it's the start of a second trilogy) is great. I enjoyed going back t

Dying Unto Life by Arthur C. McGill
“Every action is a losing, a letting go, a passing away from oneself of some bit of one’s own reality into the existence of others and of the world. In Jesus Christ, this character of action is not resisted, by trying to use our action to assert ourselves, extend ourselves, to impose our will and being upon situations. In Jesus Christ, this self-expending character of action is joyfully affirmed. I receive myself constantly from God’s Parenting love. But so far as some aspects of myself are at my disposal, these I receive to give away. Those who would live as Jesus did—who would act and purpose themselves as Jesus did—mean to love, i.e., they mean to expend themselves for others unto death. Their being is meant to pass away from them to others, and they make that meaning the conscious direction of their existence.

Too often the love which is proclaimed in the churches suppresses this element of loss and need and death in activity. As a Christian, I often speak of love as helping others

By this point, you know what the book is about and you are asking yourself should I read it? To be upfront, I got a free copy so I could review and be honest about it. That said, I had read the prior two books in the series because I chose to.

Tahereh Mafi
“And if you insist on continuing to make assumptions about my character, I’ll advise you only this: assume you will always be wrong.”
Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me

Muriel Barbery
“We never look beyond our assumptions and what's worse, we have given up trying to meet others; we just meet ourselves.”
Muriel Barbery

Miguel Ruiz
“If others tell us something we make assumptions, and if they don't tell us something we make assumptions to fulfill our need to know and to replace the need to communicate. Even if we hear something and we don't understand we make assumptions about what it means and then believe the assumptions. We make all sorts of assumptions because we don't have the courage to ask questions.”
Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

C.S. Lewis
“Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken.”
C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain

Jodi Picoult
“You figured that the only way I'd be happy is if I did the things you thought would be best for me.”
Jodi Picoult, Picture Perfect
