Book Description

June 1 2006
Often Christians feel saved from the ultimate penalty for their sins, but not from the persistent pain of regret. The long-lasting consequences of bad decisions leave many feeling perpetually out of God's will and unable to move forward into freedom and productivity. Getting Past Your Past is the antidote to the kind of regret that can stall us spiritually and bind us up in emotional pain. Susan Wilkinson lights a clear path out of this prison with six steps, including understanding and truly embracing grace; learning to forego secrets and live authentically; and grieving old dreams and dreaming new ones. This wise, heartfelt book offers strong spiritual and emotional resolution of regret by focusing on the sovereignty and unmerited kindness of God, who alone can restore the peace we've sometimes lost.

Miss Wilkinson has done and exceptional job proclaiming how the Biblical Truth of the Sovereignty of God can and should bring to the Believer tremedous comfort and peace beyond imagination. Away with the trite platitudes of a lot of "Christian" self-help books and words of well-meaning from other Believers, this book deals with the REALITY of pain and agony from our past with which many of us struggle. Miss Wilkinson offers no easy answers from a life without pain but rather, with admireable vulnerabily and honesty, she engages the heart of the reader on each page... taking them by the hand and invites them to ask the hard questions, to meet our Transcendent God where He is, and to come away with a radically new (to the modern Chriatian) and fresh understanding of His Will and desire for our lives. A message of hope from one who has mined the deep Biblical truths that are rarely proclaimed from today's pulpits. I encourage every sincere Seeker of Truth and new beginning, to taste the sweetness of the truths she invites us to grasp and make our own .... ones which are nothing less than the Biblical principal of the Absolute Sovereigny of God.

Susan Wilkinson does a splendid job showing people how to overcome the past and give them a bright hope for the future. She uses her own past regrets and those of her friends as examples of how regret can be a strong hold on your life. Then with examples from the Bible she shows ways out of the guilt of past mistakes by showing that God is in complete control of all circumstances of our lives, good as well as bad. This book will help any one who has ever experienced guilt due to sin, failures,and mistakes. Susan Wilkinson's "Getting Past Your Past" will no doubt become a classic of it's kind.
I can't recommend this book enough. Clear, biblical and precise.

1.0 out of 5 stars Same old rehash Oct. 3 2003
Format:Paperback
This kind of book as been done already time and time again by more experienced writers. Nothing new to be had here.
I had read previous reviews of this book before I bought it, apparently by a few close personal friends of the writer.
It seems a shame that the book market is being over flooded these days by self help books by so called experts. It's even a bigger shame when these experts use their religious beliefs and faith in God to cash in on a popular trend.
