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.
Now, in the quiet night hours, I took up the booklet from Adrian, called My Beloved, and continued reading the book where I had left it the previous night.
When I got to the section on the Father, describing the Father of Love, some more of the precious rays of the new light came shining out from the pages of the booklet. WOW! I got up from bed (not to disturb my husband) and went to the lounge where I sat down to meditate on the new insights that flooded my soul. Is THIS the God that I serve? A God of love and mercy? Is He really willing to betroth me as a sinner – as a daughter of Adam - to His precious Son, so that I can become a child of the Ancient of Days??? So that I can take on the characteristics of the Father of Love?
