    This book, True Feelings, is reaching bookstore shelves at precisely the right moment. It is accessible and encouraging in its language. It is a fast read. And, most importantly, it is written in a season of our society when emotions are often given free reign on social media. Sometimes, what I hope to be a simple and quick scroll through my newsfeed leaves me reeling, as though I’ve been in the middle of a yelling match (in which I wasn’t pa...

    I picked up this book because of the title. It is rare that I think I have read a book written purely on emotion or feelings so I was interested to see what the authors had to say. The book was written by a mother/daughter team and geared toward women. Many of the examples and scenarios in the book were therefore about women. Unlike many other books written to women this book did not feel as vulnerable, perhaps because of the style in which it wa...

    This book was quite difficult for me to get through. If I was not reviewing it I more than likely would have just stopped reading it. It was very repetitive and I felt that the entire book could have been much shorter as much of te things that the authors discussed was well known things and most people do not want to read a hundred something page book on things that they are already knowledgeable about. It frustrated me that the entire book never...

    I appreciate so many things about this book. It speaks honestly about our emotions and brings a biblical perspective on them. It is encouraging as well as convicting. It had a nice balance of insight and practical ideas to help us grow. It gave examples to show how applying the principles and ideas would work. I also liked the fact that the authors come from different emotional bents. One is more even-keeled while the other experiences more highs...

    More like 4.5 stars since I felt a few topics could've been fleshed out some more. Overall, a really encouraging and challenging read. "Emotions are not dangerous. We are in danger, though, if our emotions are not satisfied in Christ."I received a free copy of this book from Crossway in exchange for a fair and honest review.
