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.
This is a book about the plan that God has for families, and how, if fathers and mothers reflect the source-channel relationship that is in the Father and Son, our families can be true channels of blessing, giving our children a sense of worth and belonging. Don't we all long for that? The principles presented in this book are relevant to all of us, whether married or not (since we all belong to some kind of family structure). I was deeply blessed to read and translate this book- and I know that if you read it with an open heart, you will be blessed too.
