Pierced & Embraced Review

Book Review: 

Can God's love hurt? That is the question posed by author Kelli Worrall in this book looking at the lives of seven women who had life changing encounters with Jesus. Examining the lives of Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of Jesus, the women at the well and other New Testament women, the author uses Scripture and literature to illustrate the lessons we can learn from these women. The author also shares her own personal journey through the struggles of infertility and her anger at God to a place where she encounters the transforming love of Christ,

I really appreciated the author's vulnerability in sharing her own journey and the truths she learned. This is an excellent book to use as a personal or group study. There are questions for reflection at the end of each chapter.

I received this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for this honest review.
