In Frank Peretti's first nonfiction work, he examines the pain from his past and helps us uncover the scars in our own lives. Drawing from tragic news stories like Columbine, he illustrates how ridicule and rejection can push people beyond the brink. Then, with poignant insight, he shows us the way to heal the wounded spirit that lies within us all.

This isn't a book per se. It is a tape of a speech he gave at a conference. He talks first about his life growing up. His life parallels what is going on today. The subject is so applicable to today's situation, especially in schools, where kids torment other kids. But the bigger lesson is that for all of us, words can hurt! I would recommend this to anyone, and if you can get your kids to listen, even better.

The authors honesty
The author is honest, share insight that every person can associate with.
This book is a must for anyone ever being a victim of bullying. Told in such great way that even a child will benefit
An excellent presentation for those who are the abuser and those who have been abused. I am going to present it to our adults and young kids who work with abused kids. One thing I would like to say, the bullies are not just the young people they are also adults.
I haven't read the print version, but hearing the author tell this intensely person story in his own voice makes it even more impactful.
When Frank Peretti pleads with his live audience to pledge that THEY will stop bullying others.
I would have missed the passion and the hurt in his voice of growing up with a birth injury that made his face and tongue the object of ridicule by his classmates. It wouldn't have had the same impact if I just read the words on the page.
Look at me -- Look at yourself -- Now look differently at others.
Frank Perretti is the best story teller I know of. This time he speaks from his heart a truth that all young people desperately need to hear. Do NOT miss it.
Mr P said exactly what needed to be said. A+ should be a requirement for each child to hear.There are so many of those with a Wounded Spirit
the Truth, Im not alone, and a broken/wounded spirit can only be repaired by ONE.
emotion, hearing his voice
