I first purchased this book when it was "hot off the press" Since then have recommended it highly to anyone who is wondering if God's love is real. If so, how can all of these things have happened. Other books may be harsh when you feel your dreams and hopes have shattered but this one brings you to the truth of the Love of God and His plans for your life in a wonderful way. Broken, yes, but behind it all , the love of God.
John Ortberg teaches us how much God loves us, by using Pandy, a ragdoll, as the opening of a very nurturing, fun and exciting format. John Ortberg is a captivating, insightful, inspiring and very 'visual' writer. This book was easy to read, understand and love!!
In fact, we're doing a Bible Study Group on this book, at our Church!!
I choose this book to use as a guide for a bible study. John Ortberg's words brought home to me the importance of knowing the love of the Father for each of His rag dolls. This love when embraced extends out to touch the lives of other rag dolls. Worthwhile read.
I have read several of John Ortberg's books and have enjoyed them all. He is very easy to read and quite humorous. His message hits home and makes you think about the love the Lord has for you in all your "raggedness". I was laughing and crying, but most of all I was humbled by the awesome amount of God's love for me.
