I can’t say with complete honesty that I enjoyed Stephen Arterburn’s Healing is a Choice: Ten Decisions That Will Transform Your Life and Ten Lies That Can Prevent You From Making Them. Although the premise of the book enticed me into reading it, I was left with much to be desired. The workbook that was intertwined within the pages of the text did allow for me, as the reader, to pause for some much needed reflection. However, I felt that the questions posed to me almost forced me to reflect at the wishes of the author and not the ways in which I may have chosen to reflect. I do have a number of friends and family members that I believe would enjoy this book, but it wasn’t entirely for me.
The workbook was a nice touch, but it took away from the integrity of the book. My opinion, however, is just that: my opinion. You might find this book to be worthwhile for your own personal needs, but it didn’t do it for me. The messages in the book did not have a genuine feel to them, and because of that, I can only rate this book with three stars.
