Balcony People by Joyce Landorf Heatherley

Some people are in the "balconies" of our lives, cheering us on, encouraging and energizing us with their warm affirmations. Others live down in our "basements," coldly tearing away at our souls with their unfair and critical judgements. This book is about discovering the balcony people in our lives - and about being a balcony person to others.

This book IS about God's love. For without God and His Son Jesus Christ we would not even know what true love is.We are all selfishly born and only feel real love,unconditional love when the Holy Spirit enters our hearts. Since Christ lives in my heart, I can say that this book truely moved me. The way it did the author. If you can't feel that,I pray someday you can.

As a pastor of a church, I would ask all believers in Jesus Christ to please read this book. When describing what would happen to the world if every Christian would practice being a 'balcony person' Joyce writes these words, 'There will break out over pastors, missionaries, lay people, and congregations alike, the greatest revival the world has ever seen!' If you are reading this and have every prayed for revival in your lives and in this world, this book I believe helps show us the way.

My best friend gave me this book for Christmas and explained the reason she wanted me to read it was because I was her balcony person and she wanted me to know exactly what that meant. The book is beautiful and I was filled with joy at the end to see how cool God is to give the spirtual gift of being a 'balcony person' to me. This book is for those who are scared and hiding and need to be reassured that God has given them a balcony person to 'cheer them on' through every bit of life's bumpy roads. The gift of encouragement is an awe inspiring thing...this book will help you realize that.

For the basic message, I would have given this book 5 stars: there is a need to encourage people to think outside of themselves and consider the needs and desires of others. It is also valuable to point out that those who help others end up helping themselves in many ways. Unfortunately, Joyce Heatherly has established herself as one of my 'basement people'. I find it incredibly crass to maintain that only fundamentalist Christians are capable of empathy, generosity and love. Given this regrettable attitude, I would reduce my rating to 2 stars. I might have suggested that the reader might see beyond the very sectarian approach for which I am faulting the book and gain from the basic message. Unfortunately, the recommendations Ms. Heatherly offers for identifying one's own balcony people is to look for devout Christians, and to become someone else's balcony person is to become a devout Christian. There is no other help or instruction offered and, for that deficit, I must reduce my rating to a single star. By the way, I was motivated to think about who may have been balcony people in my own personal history, and I identify at least 4 individuals. Not once did I ever get any mythological insights from them, whether concerning God, Jesus, Buddha, Allah, Zeus, Apollo, Ra, or any other. I would like to read a book that helped people develop characteristics similar to these very dear people in my life.
