Book Review

Cherished By Kim Cash Tate is a story mainly about Brian and Kelli, high school sweethearts, who ended their relationship with a lot of hurt still festering.  Seven years later the book takes us on a journey of mercy, grace and forgiveness not only for Brian and Kelli but also for other characters in the story.  It reminds us that God is there waiting to heal the hurt that we have inside no matter how “scandalous” we think it is.  One of my favorite quotes from the book is “The funny thing about forgiveness is God is much freer with it than humans are.”  Unfortunately, in the book and in real life many times Christians and the church are very free with their judgments of what they deem to be unforgiveable sin.  This book reminds us that God is the ultimate judge and no sin is too far from His grace.

I don’t think I’ve ever read anything by Ms. Tate before but I will look up other books authored by her.  It was an enjoyable read.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
