WHOLENESS by Toure Roberts

WHOLENESS Winning in Life from the Inside Out by Toure Roberts is a book worth reading. I was not going to read it because there was a forward by T. D. Jakes, I didn’t want more of the same. (Been there read that!) I chose to review it because I noticed no one else was- I often choose what no one else wants to read to review.

What makes WHOLENESS a good book is the concept is applicable in everyone’s life. We all reach a plateau in which we cannot seem to move forward but there does not seem to be a loically reason as to why. The issue, as the author explains, is not readily seen because it comes from within; it is not them it is you.

We all have life events that were unexplainable or unavoidable in which we can ignore. Often what we do is take the hurt or feelings of rejection and place it in a mental compartment deep within our souls. Like a missing piece of the puzzle that memory creates a void in our lives the author refers to it as brokenness.

WHOLENESS, is a easy to read book (I read it in a day) that systematically takes the reader from- how it happened to how to fix it. As easy as this book is to read for some people it might be hard to digest. This book, though autobiographical in nature, is about you the reader; don’t lie to yourself and think that it is not.

This is a healthy healing read.

Note: another reason I was reluctant to read this book is the authors’ face was on the cover, he looks to young to know about life. Change the cover and perhaps you would sell more books in a greater demographic- unless your target audience is Black males.    - -  written by Marsha L F Randolph

ADDENDUM: To my readers  my book MOVING FORWARD BY FAITH , published in 2011 and updated in 2016, addresses similar issues from a different perspective. Though the author says he is a church leader he does not use Scripture as the basis for his opinion I do.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers  book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
