I read this book along with a Bible-study workbook with a friend. Though the study wasn't anything mind-blowing, it offered really good food for thought and some solid encouragement about how the Lord relates to us as Father. I probably won't re-read it but it definitely helped me work through some ideas about where I've come from and where I am now.

If you have a complicated relationship with your earthly father you have a hard time relating to the Lord. This is a helpful book for that, but it isn't easy.

This is an outstanding book about how much our heavenly Father loves us! It enables us to see some preconceived ideas that we have inadvertently believed about God and how that has affected our view of the Father. I think it is a 'must read'...especially for women as we tend to be more easily deceived by the enemy than men.

This was a short Bible study filled with familiar scripture. Interested in a peek into the the care and love of your Heavenly Father and reconcile issues with your earthly father. This is an intro into the faithfulness of God's love for you. Good for someone who hasn't spent time in this area of their heart.

“The sons of God are Jews, Greeks, and Gentiles; black and white; despised and respected; rich and poor; tall and short; men and women. All the features that externally define us are inconsequential when it comes to salvation, for Jesus brings “many sons to glory” (Heb. 2:10).” 3 likes
“Many people, inside as well as outside the church, no longer believe in the fatherhood of God. Skeptical, hostile feelings toward men have translated into skeptical, hostile feelings toward the God who images himself as Father.” 0 likes
