Legend 33
I picked this book up after a devastating betrayal of friendship. I was lovingly taken to the cross to see how every wound that mankind could possibly endure was placed on Jesus during His rejection, brutality, verbal abuse, suffering humiliation, mocking, etc. He really can say to us, "I understand what you're going through".
This book doesn't just leave you there, although there is a great amount of healing that takes place when we're understood. The subsequent chapters lead me to overcome the devastation. The challenges in those chapters required me to go back though the events with Jesus. Oh how it hurt to do so, but I am so glad I did. If you get this one, you must complete the assignments in each chapter before proceeding to the next.
Once Jesus has taken your wounds upon Himself in your heart and mind, then He can surprise you with how majestically He can take the horror of your life and make something priceless. If you're 'All In', then this book will be used to heal every wound.

Part one was excellent--really amplifies what our Savior accomplished on the cross and also how He most surely has faced all we face and can therefore be our High Priest, having been victorious over these trials. However, Part two started to psychologize, with "repressed memories" and such and I don't believe all that is necessary in order to be victorious over our past.

We read Wounds that Heal in two different recovery groups that I lead for women. These groups of women get together every week to consider how to grow spiritually within a marriage where addictions (or other challenges) have been present. Wounds that Heal was the perfect selection. Again and again, we found ourselves at the foot of the cross, where we learned to put life in perspective. The last chapter is worth the whole book, "Radiant Scars." Here Seamands talks about why Jesus resurrected with his scars intact, and how our scars are meant to be "recycled" by God to bring others hope. Beautiful stuff! This is a book I will go back to again and again. The only chapter that I struggled with was his chapter on demons (which he admits was a risk to put in the book). I thought it broke up the flow of an otherwise heart-moving book. The study guide is terrific which makes it great for book group study.

I'm biased, having taken a class from this author, but I have used this since with several different groups, and it is a tremendous tool for healing. He goes into terrific detail on all kinds of trauma and suffering, and even if you have no serious issues, you will understand those who do much better, as well as having a solid foundation for praying and working with others. I recommend this book with no reservations - it will challenge and bless you if you stick with it.
