The Healing of a Broken Vessel by Denise Joyce Williams
Date of publish: Mar 23, 2010
The Healing Of A Broken Vessel is Dr. William's first literary effort. She currently resides in Jacksonville, FL with her Staff Sergeant husband who made a career in the military. She works as an analyst, pastor and inspirational writer.
Brokenness, rejection, abandonment, health, church hurt, finances, marriage, sexual violation, strength to forgive, healing, and recovery. These are the chapter titles in the book titled "The Healing of a Broken Vessel".
This was a very difficult book to read, and I really had to force myself to continue. Whatever could possibly go wrong does go wrong. I found it depressing to read about all the bad things that happened in the life of the author. Just when you think that things can't possibly get any worse, they still got worse.
The author of this book writes in a very unusual format. She writes very long unbroken paragraphs, sometimes extending a whole page long or even more. I found this format very difficult to read, and combined with the depressing topics, it was a real chore to continue reading.
The author attempts to offer a message of hope and deliverance from the issues that hinder spiritual growth, but I think she dwells too much on her difficult past. Overall, I was quite disappointed in the book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and Bostick Communications in exchange for my honest review.
