    2. First sentence: Imagine Marilla Cuthbert and Anne Shirley writing a book together, and that’ll give you an idea of what’s ahead. But that’s only half the story. We may be emotional opposites, but we share a common curiosity and enthusiasm to learn what the Bible has to say about a woman’s feelings.Premise/plot: True Feelings is written by a mother and daughter team. The focus is on emotions and what God has revealed about them in his Word. Chapters include: "Fact, Fiction, and Feelings," [...]

    4. I thought the book was helpful and gave a solid biblical perspective on feelings, but left a major question in my mind unanswered: what do we do with the feelings of others? How do we work through emotions together? The relational aspect was missing for me, but it was an otherwise great resource.

    5. I read this because I enjoy Mahaney -but I had no idea how much this would hit home to me. It’s a study of emotions - where they come from, why we have them, how we can refine them. I read it thinking I don’t struggle much with my emotions - but wow, I had SO much to learn and was encouraged by the book. I plan to re-read it to let other parts sink in as well. Great book with a lot of info that will challenge you on how to think about your God-given emotions.

    7. This book, True Feelings, is reaching bookstore shelves at precisely the right moment. It is accessible and encouraging in its language. It is a fast read. And, most importantly, it is written in a season of our society when emotions are often given free reign on social media. Sometimes, what I hope to be a simple and quick scroll through my newsfeed leaves me reeling, as though I’ve been in the middle of a yelling match (in which I wasn’t participating). Christian, it is the right time to t [...]

    8. Mixed feelings on a book about emotions go figure. There were definitely parts that I felt were on point but it was so needlessly redundant that I found myself annoyed half way through the book. Yes, I understand that we are fearfully and wonderfully made and that our emotions are part of the package. According to the authors, our emotional side has been as perfectly designed as the rest of our body, we were created to “feel” so we could experience life in a unique way and our emotions are a [...]

    9. I picked up this book because of the title. It is rare that I think I have read a book written purely on emotion or feelings so I was interested to see what the authors had to say. The book was written by a mother/daughter team and geared toward women. Many of the examples and scenarios in the book were therefore about women. Unlike many other books written to women this book did not feel as vulnerable, perhaps because of the style in which it was written combined with the fact that the authors [...]

    10. Often we look at our emotions and view them as bad. Yet emotions themselves are not bad, rather how we use them. Learning to recognize and control our emotions is a battle we all face. In this book, the authors provide some practical steps to better understand our emotions and learn to use them in a God-honoring way rather than in sinful patterns.Emotions "tell us what we believe and value. We should listen to what they are telling us and evaluate our emotions in light of Scripture. Emotions als [...]

    11. This book was quite difficult for me to get through. If I was not reviewing it I more than likely would have just stopped reading it. It was very repetitive and I felt that the entire book could have been much shorter as much of te things that the authors discussed was well known things and most people do not want to read a hundred something page book on things that they are already knowledgeable about. It frustrated me that the entire book never discussed the fact that men have feelings as well [...]

    12. I appreciate so many things about this book. It speaks honestly about our emotions and brings a biblical perspective on them. It is encouraging as well as convicting. It had a nice balance of insight and practical ideas to help us grow. It gave examples to show how applying the principles and ideas would work. I also liked the fact that the authors come from different emotional bents. One is more even-keeled while the other experiences more highs and lows emotionally. It is easy for these two ty [...]

    13. True Feelings is a breath of fresh air when it comes to books about our feelings. Right away, we are reminded that our sin nature affects all parts of us, including our emotions. The book goes on to show us how our emotions are an indicator of our priorities and values, and how we should seek to make sure they align with scripture. While I do wish certain points of the book were expanded on more, this is a great read for both new and mature believers that helps put into perspective that emotions [...]

    14. An unexpected gem. I read this straight after Jerry Bridges “Respectable Sins” which helps to put into practice working on those acceptable sins. This is accessible but their points are well made and well thought out. Some of the best bits are their quotes from others but all all, well written, neat and practical - definite opportunities for actually doing something about unruly emotions and not just reading about them.

    15. More like 4.5 stars since I felt a few topics could've been fleshed out some more. Overall, a really encouraging and challenging read. "Emotions are not dangerous. We are in danger, though, if our emotions are not satisfied in Christ."I received a free copy of this book from Crossway in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    16. This book had some wonderful points to it, especially in the chapters on how to bring emotions to God in prayer. However, it sometimes seems like the writing is a bit clunky. It is also only addressed toward women- it could have been interesting to see a man's perspective.

    17. Fabulous, thought-transforming book. Everyone should read!

    18. This book was incredibly practical and everything I've ever wanted/needed in a book about emotions and how God wants us to rightly use them.

    20. Not just for womenGuys have emotions too. It’s a little bias but made some good points. Simplistic in some places but overall helpful and enjoyable.

    21. Excellent short study on feelings as both a gift from God and a curse when uncontrolled. The book gives a balanced, biblical and helpful explanation of our emotions and how we can better use them not to sin, but as a reminder of God’s goodness and to be utilized for His glory.
