Letting Go and Forgiving the Past
It is best described as just as captivating but the calm after the storm.
Ishmael Is Gone-Now Where Is Isaac? Is a valuable spiritual and self-help guide, with discussion questions at the end of each chapter to help the reader glean from the experiences of the author while introspectively examining theirs. Acacia's vulnerability and her willingness to share personal experiences that many may believe are better left unshared (unknowingly entering into a marriage filled with deception and her bouts with mental illness) have earned her respect amongst her readers. It's time for you to forgive and let go of your past. Your life isn't over; the best is yet to come! - If you only have "The Faith" to believe in a Savior who can turn your ashes into beauty and your mourning into dancing.
Come along, as Acacia teaches "The Faith" the Lord taught her during the darkest and most incomprehensible times of her life. Her story entwined with scripture, accompanied by supernatural experiences (applicable for the Body of Christ) will propel the believer and unbeliever alike to arise from the ashes of defeat and to forgive and let go of their past hurt and shame.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Slaton once again takes a leap of faith in sharing her very personal and painful experiences in order to guide others through their own journeys, offering a means of reflection, questioning, and discussion along with her narrative. Just as in The Serpent Beguiled Eve: Healing the Wounds of Abandonment, Betrayal and Shame, I am affected very much by her willingness to be so open with her own life, putting the needs of her readers ahead of privacy. Her ability to do this is a reflection of her own trust in Christ and an answer to His call to help her brothers and sisters in faith - this in and of itself shows her as a reliable guide who truly believes and practices what she writes. It isn't always easy to move forward, and the author never says that it is, but as children of God, we are called to move past our difficulties, learn from them, and continue to serve, and this volume is an able and refreshing guide to doing just that.
