Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst

This is, by far, the best book I have ever read on rejection. TerKeurst writes from experience. Her depth of empathy is refreshing. The practical suggestions she gives are inspiring.

There are many who feel they have been rejected by their father and this book is specifically great for this issue. TerKeurst is painfully honest with her own contemporary feelings and their roots in past experience. Those who have experienced rejection with certainly relate.

While that aspect of the book is great, TerKeurst's sharing of how she has been working through her feelings of rejection is even better. She includes suggestions for healing that come from her own journey. I was particularly struck by her ten days of prayer. As one who felt rejected by a parent, I really identified with them.

I initially listened to this book on audio. Ginny Welsh's reading of the book was great. She expressed well the feelings conveyed by the written words. She is the best narrator of a book I've heard this year (and I go through over twenty books on audio annually). I listened to the book while walking but was so struck by the importance of the content I had to get myself a copy I could read.

I highly recommend this book to those who have experienced rejection and are ready to work their way through to healing.
