Reverend Jakes explores Jesus’ healing of a woman in Luke 13. This woman had been ill for eighteen (18) years. He looks at every facet of this healing. The subtitle tells the mission of this book: Healing the Wounds of the Past.
I especially liked one chapter, entitled Winter Woman. Mr. Jakes divided the life span of women into seasons. He spends time telling us about Naomi and Ruth, and then he speaks of Sarah. I rarely see any magazine or other print media aimed at those in this period of their lives.
I had never read any of Pastor Jakes before. I enjoyed this book. I recommend this book to anyone in a pastoral role, or any Christian counselor.
I received this book through Book Fun and the publisher Destiny Image. All they asked me to do was to read it and give an impartial review.
