he pickpockets our purpose Cripples our courage Dismantles our dreams And blinds us to the beauty of Christ’s powerful loveIn Uninvited Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences with rejection from the incredibly p. 25 starsSo I m just going to go ahead and give you the bottom line right from the start I was rather disappointed in this bookI read The Best Yes by Lysa Terkheurst a while ago and I really found it helpful so I thought I d pick up her new book I generally think that Terkheurst is a good writer but this book really fell flat for me I think for a few reasons1 This was not a great time in my life to read this book I was trying to remember my own past rejections as I read and trying to evaluate whether the book would have been helpful to me in those times when I was feeling rejected in the past or when I face it again in the futurebut I really didn t get much out of it I can t tell if this is because the book really wasn t as helpful as it should have been or if it was just that I am not currently feeling rejected which might make it hard to relate to what she was saying2 The book didn t seem focused I felt like she was trying to be too broad with the subject of this book Feeling unlovedless than left out and lonely are pretty different problems in my opinion each of which probably deserves it s own book There are different types of rejection and I felt like she lumped them all together and tried to address them all at once I think we would have been better served as readers if she broke it down a little clearlyI probably should have just known she was going to try to tackle all this from the subtitle of the book but I went into this book thinking the topic was rejection because I heard Terkheurst speak about it before I picked it up However I kept losing track of what we were even talking about and I had to remind myself that Oh yeah this book is about rejection As a reader I find it annoying when I keep having to remind myself what the author is talking about It felt all over the place to me and I felt she was really stretching trying to make some of these topics fit under the umbrella of rejection It wasn t what I expected 3 I was frustrated at how she used Scripture in some places in this book To clarify I did like a lot of the verses she included and thought they could be helpful so I m not picking on every Scripture use in this book But there were a few places where I just thought huh For instance she has a chapter about abundance and scarcity I ve heard her speak on this before and it is an interesting psychological concept but she explained it poorly and over spiritualized it She included a uote that referenced the story of Joseph and the famine in the Bible and the uote implied that there was abundance in all the world before this not true there were at least a couple famines before Joseph Genesis 261 and then blamed all the scarcity in the land on Pharaoh which isn t an accurate representation of what happened at allIn another chapter she writes about Jesus being tempted in the wilderness but she talks about how Jesus was feeling rejected at this time and I don t know where she is getting that While I like the idea of applying Scripture when we are feeling rejected it was a stretch to use that story to illustrate her point The passage is talking about temptation not rejectionAnother example is when she is using the olive tree as an illustration in Chapter 15 talking about being crushed and how God can use that to bring about good in our lives but then she includes 2 Corinthians 48 which says we are pressed but not crushed Following that is a confusing monologue about being crushed but at the same time we re not crushed and I honestly had no idea what she was trying to say any The whole thing was self contradictoryAnd somewhat related she also used the words revelation and divine insights in a few places where she was really talking about her own insights and I didn t like that The Bible is our revelation from God and the only writing that is divinely inspired4 Too much romantic spiritual language This is a personal pet peeve but I get tired of the romantic analogies of our relationship with Jesus Jesus is our God not our boyfriend To reduce our speech about him to romantic terms takes away some of the power of the fact that we are loved and valued by the Creator of the UniverseSo for something positive Terkheurst s writing is engaging which is always a plus and her personal stories really add color to her topics This book missed the mark for me but I wouldn t say I didn t enjoy it at all Overall I know what she was trying to do in this book but it felt like too much bread not enough butter ie she was stretching too much out of her topic and definitely stretching with some of her Scripture applications Use discernment with her Scripture applications if you do read this one but I don t know I wouldn t say I recommend this book and honestly I don t know if I ll pick up another book by Terkheurst She lost some of my trust with point 3Note I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for a review This is my honest opinion

My feelings about Uninvited can best be summed up with a dispassionate meh it was alright Lysa TerKeurst s writing style didn t do much for me and the chapters felt a little disjointed and unfocused I did like the overall message the book was trying to convey but the way that message was flushed out was disappointing and if I m being totally honest forgettable This isn t a book that will stay with me or that I ll refer back to in years to come Judging from the glowing reviews here on GoodReads I m obviously in the minority with my opinion and that s okay Hopefully this book speaks to others than it did to me
