The authors make a bold claim for this book. “No matter how deep or longstanding your pain may be, if you follow the simple solution offered in this book, you can experience deep relief right now … you can experience deep and lasting relief of your underlying emotional hurts.” (12-13)
They share how God brought them together, he a divorced pastor and she a widow. God brought them to a place of new ministry.
Dennis writes about simple daily prayer, steps to abiding in Christ and toward walking in the presence of the Lord in a continuous basis. They describe how to quiet the flesh and build sensitivity to the Spirit, developing discernment, the location of thoughts and emotions, healing the emotional pain that hinders deep union with God, forgiveness and much more.
The key to experiencing deep relief is intimacy with our heavenly Father as a Person. Deep relief comes only through His presence and can only be experienced as we learn to continually abide in Him. (114) They provide actual practices to show how this is done and they also give many encouraging stories.
This book and the tools they suggest are based on biblical principles. The testimonies they tell are great. I recommend it to any who want to experience healing and relief from emotional pain.
