I found it to be very simplistic and not forthcoming about the challenges of trying to achieve individuality when in the shadow of an important, dominant person. The challenges Lynne Hybels faces could have translated across the spectrum of countless women who find themselves eclipsed by high achieving, purpose driven men in all areas of life but this somehow did not come through to the reader. She is obviously a person of depth and accomplishment who, perhaps because she did not want to cast a shadow on the great work that Willow Creek church has accomplished, tried to keep her story as non controversial as possible.
Very interesting read. I especially loved Lynne Hybels vulnerability in sharing her experiences of letting go of the masks of fear and insecurity and fully embracing her purpose. She inspires others to do the same, to find and fulfill our God given purpose as women. If you care to be ‘a dangerous woman’ this book is for you.
A wonderful book and quick and easy to read. But, gets to the point that is/was my life. I would recommend this book to all Christian counsellors to recommend to their clients. I am going to buy a couple and offer to friends.
