Charity may seem simple or overdone, but Doug has a way of approaching the topic in a real and penetrating way. I have read the book once and plan to read it again with my husband. There is just so much to learn from the insights shared in this book. And yet I don't feel overwhelmed or inadequate. Instead, I feel encouraged.
How he always manages to take terrible situations and be understanding, yet expectant of a person's ability change is always amazing. A great way at looking honesty at yourself so you can improve and progress, but doesn't leave you feeling guilty and inadequate. It's great.
