Review 1 for In Every Pew Sits a Broken Heart, Hope For The Hurting
Date:February 20, 2010
I was given this book by a Christian counselor to read during a time when our family was going through an enormous crisis. Hoping it would be an encouragement to my soul and spirit, instead it left me angry and confused. In her book, Ms. Graham comes across as a spoiled girl who never grew up and finds ways to place the blame for her life's struggles on everyone else. Her attitude is one of denying accountability and finding excuses for her less-than-mature behavior. I think this book - and her ministry - has received much acclaim due to her riding on the coattails of her father's fame. When I returned this book to my counselor I relayed my opinion to her. Her reply: "That's exactly what I thought, too." She no longer recommends this book for Christians - or anyone, for that matter - who are struggling with the trials that "come so that your faithof greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by firemay be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed."
