In her enlightening and empowering work, Broken Lenses Volume 3: Experiencing God's Freedom in a World of Sin, Emily Bernath examines God’s nature, encouraging her audience to seek the freedom and hope that can only be found in him. As a survivor of sexual assault, Bernath longed for compassion and mercy and looked to friends to fill the growing void in her. Her friends, however, failed to understand her suffering. The assault led her down a dark path of hopelessness and seclusion. She discusses how her relationship with God helped her change course and discover his never-ending love and mercy. She examines other attributes of God, including his holiness and miraculous power. Bernath encourages others to discover the freedom she experienced in him and believe that he loves them.
This is a remarkable work with invaluable insight about healing and finding hope after a traumatizing, devastating experience. Bernath writes with authenticity and her writing is graceful and accessible to any reader. I loved that each section included questions for reflection and encouraging prayers that made the discussions interactive and easier to apply. The explanations offered are hopeful and compelling. I loved that each term used is defined and scriptures are offered for further reading. I also found the book’s tone conversational and uplifting. Emily Bertnath acknowledges the struggles people face, especially those who are sexual assault survivors, and offers hope through faith in God. Experiencing God's Freedom in a World of Sin is a powerful work with uplifting, practical lessons and eye-opening, fundamental discussions concerning God’s character and attributes.
