No Longer Rejected: A Woman's Journey from Rejection to Freedom Reviews
My usual favorite reads are YA and MG novels. This book is quite a switch, inspirational Christian non-fiction. You'll notice my read time was a little bit longer than normal. I inhale novels. This book, although only 150 pages, required some rumination. I couldn't just whip through it. The stories and bible teachings brought up too much emotion and questions.My first impression reading this book was that women were really poorly treated in biblical times. The author has a gift for taking stories I've heard my entire life, stories that focused on the male characters, and pulling out the woman's narrative. Michal's story was particularly heartbreaking, and I felt like I was reading it through her eyes for the first time. But the author always shows that despite living in highly discriminatory cultures, God never treated these women as less than their male counterparts.If it sounds like this book is primarily for women, you are correct, not that a man couldn't enjoy the teachings.This book is also designed as a devotional, and I agree that is it's best use, as a personal study once a day, or several times a week, or, perhaps, as part of a weekly woman's group meeting. There are places to write in the book, so individual copies are a must for best use.Not just about rejection, this book is about finding our worth in God. Highly recommended if you have struggled with over coming feelings of rejection, but also if as a woman you have ever felt less in God's eyes.
At first glance, this is not a book subject I would be drawn to, but it's written by an author that I greatly admire. I'm sure she's going to surprise me with her insightful writing, and I'll be glad I gave this one a chance. Looking forward to reading my copy.
This touching book addresses many universal emotions that anybody who has dealt with rejection and feelings of inadequacy can relate to. Author Janice Broyles honestly shares her own experiences with rejection and relates these events back to scripture. She writes with conviction and beautifully ties biblical passages with her own prose. At the end, I felt empowered, and, most importantly, that I wasn’t alone in the struggle against feelings of inadequacy. I highly recommend this book to anyone facing rejection or issues with self-worth.
