Book Review: The Edge of the Divine by Sandi Patty

The Edge of the Divine
Where Possibility Meets God's Faithfulness
By Sandi Patty

From the book cover: Award-winning vocalist, speaker, and author Sandi Patty uncovers the crucial decision every woman must make to leave a life of regret and find a life of freedom and joy.

Every woman reaches an unavoidable crossroads where she either spirals into a life of shame and regret or walks proudly in the freedom of God's grace and goodness. In The Edge of the Divine, Sandi Patty takes readers to the heart of the crucial choice to cling to the hope God gives. Women discover that they can leave a life of wondering for a life of wonder. Wonder at the infinite love of God, at His inexhaustible mercy, and His refusal to let us wallow far from His blessings, hope, and grace. But first, as Sandi shows, women must walk to the edge of the divine and decide to jump.

As someone who has seen Sandi Patty speak in person I was very excited to read one of her books, unfortunately I was very disappointed. I found it very hard to get into the book as the writing seemed to be very dis-jointed and tended to wander off topic quite a bit. This book seemed more of a journal she has kept more than a book intented for others to read.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
