You're Not Alone by Carla Knowlton deals with a biblical theme. The author tries to tell the reader that the emotions we are undergoing currently have been experienced by our ancestors. They too went through a lot of negative emotions. That is a sort of revelation to us. We always thought our ancestors had a better life than us. The book is written from a unique angle about the different negative emotions of our biblical ancestors -- that of worthlessness, fear, lack of belief in God etc.
The book is purely based on Christianity and biblical characters. I found the idea of looking at these biblical heroes with a different perspective very innovative. So we read about the struggles and the other emotions of Noah, Peter, Esther, Abraham etc. Our perspective about these biblical heroes takes a dent because we have always considered them to be super heroes and it is difficult to accept them with all their negative emotions. But the book shows us their human side which is the highlight. It strips them of their super heroes image and makes us reach out to them.
You're Not Alone also ends on a positive note. It speaks about the presence of God in everyone's lives and how He has the power to perform miracles and transform our lives. The author has written about something which is very interesting and motivating. It inspires us to accept the problems in life and face them in a positive manner.
