FREEING TANGLED HEARTS
Author: Dolores Kimball
Are you sometimes left confused by the conflicting array of feelings you experience as a woman? Do you let your heart rule your head? In this book Dolores Kimball takes an honest look at our lives as women and urges us not to allow our confusion, our ‘tangled’ hearts, to rule our lives, but to cast ourselves on the Savior, who alone can change our hearts for ever.
The author makes it clear that this is not a "how-to" book, so much as a reminder of what God has already done. She gives what she calls a 'five-point cure for a tangled heart'. This is good counsel, not just for ladies! The chapter on Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones' five-word advice ("Refuse to think about youself") is very helpful.
‘Freeing Tangled Hearts is a fantastic resource in that it points to God as the Saviour, not just a Saviour from sin and its consequences, but Saviour from a life controlled by ungodly emotions and unbiblical thinking. Only by taking our eyes off of ourselves and focusing on God can our tangled hearts truly be freed. Only by allowing God and his Word to shape our thoughts and mould our emotions can we truly experience the abundant life that is available through Jesus Christ (John 10:10).’ S. Michael Houdmann, Founder and President of Got Questions Ministries International.
‘Using biblical wisdom, gospel hope and a well needed reminder of God’s sovereignty, Dolores encourages us to be the women he saved us to be ... grounded in truth and guided by it.’ Jane McNabb, Author and conference speaker.
Dr Al Albano (Pastor, Meridian Bible Church, Colorado, USA) says this is 'a book that graciously confronts the common sin issues that not only women deal with but men as well. Dolores is also a compassionate woman who can empathize with her readers and get them to victory. Both the biblical and personal illustrations are very well done and drive home the truth of freeing the tangled heart.’
