As basic and conversational as this book is, there are a few faults that I had with it. For the most part, these are fairly small details, however I think they are worth noting. First, there are a few places where the author refers to her readers as “daughters of God.” Now, I get it—very few men are going to read this book; it is written more for women. However, as a male reader and as one who gets aggravated when male writers assume only men will read their books, I think Head does herself a disservice by assuming that only women will read her book. As I mentioned above, there is a lot of good stuff here that can benefit any reader, regardless of gender. Second, the author gets a little repetitious in some of her comments and stories. This was not so much of a returning to stories in order to continue telling them as much as it was repeating stories as if that particular story had not been told previously. Third—and this one is a little theological—the author mixes or equates the roles of God and Jesus in a way that made me scratch my head a time or two. From an evangelical perspective, I can understand the blurring of Trinitarian personalities because we teach them as one in the same. However, from an academic perspective, this reflects a lacking in biblical and theological competency that is problematic, especially for skeptical, unchurched readers.
Overall, I think this is a good book that will a helpful read for those who are looking for some encouragement on how God can turn our messes into miracles.
