I truly enjoyed reading this book because it spoke to me in so many ways. I was able to relate to what he described as doing to get God's approval. I found myself trying to do good works in exchange for God loving me more. I, like Dave Hickman, came to understand that there is nothing that we can do to make God stop loving us or to love us any more. For He already loves us unconditionally and desires to be in relationship with us in Christ Jesus. Hickman uses great quotes from well known theologians. He also uses examples of childbirth to get the point across to the reader. He adds some humor, but delivers a heartfelt message: Our union with Christ is not that we are equal with Him but that we are made whole in Him.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. I would recommend it to all believers and unbelievers alike. It is a very easy read and has includes discussion questions. It could be used in a book club and even a Bible study small group.
I gave this book 5/5 stars, and I would recommend it to all believers and those that are seeking relationship with God in Christ Jesus.
Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
