If You Only Knew

If You Only Knew: My Unlikely, Unavoidable Story Of Becoming Free – Book Review

Did you know that there was once a time when people lived without the burden of guilt and shame dictating the way they conducted their daily lives?

Long ago in a garden, a man and woman named Adam and Eve walked in a garden with God on a daily basis and communed with Him, innocent and sin-free, before the day came when they listened to the voice of the serpent instead of the voice of the Lord and sin entered into the world. Since then, each of us has had to struggle not only against the temptation of sin, but against the ravages that sin leaves in our lives.

In her book If You Only Knew: My Unlikely, Unavoidable Story Of Becoming Free, Jamie Ivey candidly shares the struggle that each of us faces when we come to Christ and begin the lifelong process of walking out our faith: the challenge to be honest with ourselves and God and authentic with one another as we heal from the devastating effects of our past and into the healing grace and freedom that Jesus offers us.

If You Only Knew is a grace-filled book that combines Jamie’s life story with rich Bible lessons. In her book, Jamie asks:

What if you knew all of the moments of my past that I am not proud of? What if you really knew me: the messy parts that I’ve hoped to forget and worked so hard to conceal? For so long, my greatest fear was what you might think of me if only you knew the whole story.

If you enjoy reading memoirs and books that enrich your understanding of the Bible and practical theology, you’ll enjoy reading this book!
