Broadman & Holman
There is one word that separates Christianity from all the religions in the world. That word is ďFatherĒ. In this sweetly sensitive book, Mary A. Kassian paints a beautiful word picture of our Heavenly Fatherís love for us. Readers will enter into the door of His heart and see the wonderful blessings that await them.
The book is divided into six parts with an orderly and progressive arrangement. Itís almost as if readers are asked to step into a different room of the Fatherís house as they read about His love, protection and guidance. Every page unfolds a new aspect of God as Father and then brings that insight down to a practical level. Also noteworthy is a wonderful section at the back of the book, which lists the glorious names of God with their Scripture references. This would make an excellent Bible study!
The chapters all begin with a personal memory, written by different people. Some of these reminiscences are joyful while others are jagged with pain. The author is acutely aware that not everyone has a positive image of father, and she handles this aspect of the book very well. She continually turns the readersí thoughts to a perfect Father who is able to heal the hurts of past relationships and create a future filled with love.
The book is faithful to Scripture and has a clear goal of giving people a deeper, more intimate look at God the Father. The author definitely succeeds in that area! Her enthusiasm for this subject and her conversational style of writing allows her thoughts to penetrate beyond the printed page.
In My Fatherís House should be in everyoneís house! -- Joyce Handzo, Christian Book Previews.com
We need to get to know God as Father and relate to Him as a blessed child. However, our relationship with our earthly father positively or negatively impacts how we relate to Father God. Mary Kassian encourages women to clear barriers hindering them from seeing their loving Heavenly Father, basing their relationship with God on the truth of who He is rather than falsehoods about Him.
