I have been sharing your book Identity wars with a number of my friends. Everyone of them have identity issues. Some come from a very abusive background and grew up looking for worth in all the wrong places. Another friend used drugs and attempted suicide and still has some serious concerns. One other has issues with power, position, money, education. Another person who is a Roman Catholic, called me yesterday and told me she was reading the chapters I am translating into Spanish, even though she is not a reader and has no interest in things we believe as Seventh-day Adventists. A young woman who stayed with us a few days has lots of problems as well. I was sharing with her the comparison you made in your book between Lucifer and Absalom, and she was really touched by it.
The book Agape is having a profound personal impact upon my life. I feel the loving tender presence of my Saviour drawing me to our Father. At the same time the darkness and hypocrisy residing at the heart of my current religious experience is being magnified like never before. The narrow gate that few find; Mat 7:14, is standing before me and I see the tears of my Lord and hear His still small voice beckoning, come unto me.
