The enemy wants us to feel rejected, left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ's powerful love.
In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences with rejection - from the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father to the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over.
With biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa helps listeners:

It is hard to put into words how well this book spoke to my heart. My favorite part were the chapters on Abigail & "me too"and the one describing the importance of going through the pain, not always trying to numb it. Thank you to Lysa for sharing some of the deepest parts of her heart. This gave me renewed hope.
Loved it from chapter one to seventeen. Listened to it in two days! I am excited to hear what God is really saying rather than what I am hearing.
The reader is talking WAY TOO fast. I even slowed it down but it's distorted sounding at some points. Why didn't Lysa read it? Her voice is so good I think it's half of why I love hearing her advice.
Not only did I buy the book, I've listened to the audio version as well. I will definitely read, listen to, and use this book daily! I'm so happy that Lysa listened to God's voice and allowed Him to speak thru her. This book is encouraging, uplifting and most of all...in the end it makes you feel INVITED! I loved it and I'd highly recommend it.
Almost every chapter, spoke directly to my heart and spoke purpose into my "real life" situations, both past and present!
Once again, it is amazing! Get yours today! 💞
Would love to hear the author read the book. Loved the book, but would rather read than listen if it's not the author reading it on Audible.
This is a great book with super valuable content; however, the audio is super annoying. I am a frequent listener to audiobooks and often listen at 1.25 speed to get rid of some of the long pauses. This book at normal speed goes really slow in parts and then will go super fast for a sentence or two.
We have all struggled with rejection since childhood. This book brilliantly looks at this potentially negative life changing moments in our lives. The author shows how to over come the chocking chains of rejection through biblical teachings and having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. A wonderful, honest and delightful book that open my eyes. Please take the time to listen or read this book. God bless. =)
I would like to comment on the Narration of this book, since others have. I was not sure I wanted to buy this Audio book due to the performance comments, but I really wanted to hear the book, which is my new favorite Reading Experience :) I too could not enjoyably listen to it at 100% of speed, so I did slow it down to 75. At first a few words seemed off, but I continued on and I am thoroughly enjoying it. The Narrator really does a fantastic job, if it is slowed down. I wish the speed could be a sliding bar, so maybe you could get 80 or 85 percent when needed.
I am on my second listen to this book in 24 hours and have been tremendously blessed by the content. Lysa hits the nail on the head for me on all points. I especially love the prayers in chapter 14. Ginny Welsh's narration doesn't really suit my taste. I found myself initially irritated by her voice and reading style. However, the quality of the content enabled me to bear it.
"Very helpful and insightful."
I brought the audio version and also book, I listened to the audio version first and it was good for me to get a good grasp of the topics and listen to while going out. I will use the book to do a more detailed study, so I can learn, understand, more forward and grow. The author's use of the bible, highlighting scriptures to use and pray with and how people in the bible (David and Abigail) dealt with rejection was very useful to know and use to understand roots of their and our situations where we may have been rejected, and how we react. The author was very open about her childhood and younger years, even friendships and marriage to bring over some points, which I appreciated. Also the last chapter on looking at our blind spots, was definitely needed, we have a part to play in changing to. I would highly recommend this book to men as well as women, parents, teens, teachers, church leaders, also Non-Christians looking to understand this area. I realise not everyone will like the Christian aspect of the book, but it's still worth a look. The audio version may be cheaper.
"What you need to hear-not what you want to."
I was seriously lacking Christian literature in my day to day until I decided to read this. Challenging and thought provoking but so loving. A good read if you're feeling unpopular or unimportant.
I truly found this book so helpful and insightful. I will certainly read it over again. Thanks for your amazing book Lysa TerKeurst 👍
"Grabs reader like Lisa is right in front of you."
This book was brilliant it met on a personal level from such an open, willing and humble heart. I highly recommend this to all. An engagement like never before between sister, brother and father.
"For ladies who need to overcome rejection"
if there ever was a book to describe all that I went through and all the feelings and emotions I experienced during a difficult time, it was this book. This is an amazing book to read and listen to. it's very comforting to know you're not the only one who had these experiences and you can work on overcoming the feelings of rejection . This book will be a permanent companion.
I liked the way the book was written and read. The author was very transparent and unashamed. It dealt with some deep issues that if we're honest we all seriously struggle with.
Equally it was funny in parts to break the momentum to feel sorry for yourself. A good look at the subject to help you to realize you don't have to stay where you are.
