Many Christians feel guilty that they're not enough -- not enough for others, not enough for the Church, not enough for God. They've been told they're not committed enough, loving enough, spiritual enough. Shame and guilt are the painful results. What does God really think about your heart? What if you believed your heart was already good, already holy? This book offers a way out of the shame and guilt of never good-enough. Includes stories of Christians whose church experiences left them feeling ashamed, and not good-enough.------------[See additional reviews at author's website: www.THEGOODANDNOBLEHEART.com]

"Important Read for All Christians" If you have ever been to church and left feeling empty, condemned, tired, or not good enough; this is an essential read. As Christians we sometimes forget God's promises of forgiveness and feel as though we have to do things to earn God's love. Well, we don't! Neither do we have to work to "be better". God gave us a good heart. This book is an up-lifting read that uses scripture and Biblical truth to show us the goodness of our hearts accomplished by God's work and that we are full approved and accepted by him. Recover Your Good Heart will reveal Biblical truths to you and encourgage you to live from your heart. I cannot recommend it more.
"A thought-provoking, Biblically-based reminder of the rest of the Gospel" An eye-opening and encouraging offer of hope for those of us who have tried, through our own efforts, to be a "good" Christian and have known the shame and guilt of failing. "Recover Your Good Heart" helps us recover the rest of the truth of the Gospel (that God changed us and placed in us a piece of Himself, His heart, upon salvation) and teaches us that we can live from this goodness and not from our old ways. A much-needed message for new and long-time Christians alike.
"Timing is everything" Restoration, recovery, revival are buzzwords in church circles these days but most of what is being preached from pulpits is just recycled versions of the phrase "God is good, you are bad, try harder". Jim Robbins adds his thoughts to the growing number of believers who are finding out that our life in Jesus is not about more effort and busyness but about the discovery that we are loved by our Father who is ready to share His life with us without restraint. It reminds me of the scene from the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe in which the stone statues in the courtyard of the witch's castle are breathed upon by Aslan and brought back to life. This book is life-giving.
“Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.” In my practice as a Christian Counselor, I often hear that my clients still think of themselves as a wretch; shameful and dirty. They tell me that they are “sinners saved by grace” and that their “heart is deceitful above all things.” But that is who they were, not who they are now. Christians today live in bondage because they still think of themselves as they were before salvation and don’t understand their new identity in Christ. Jim Robbins has written a much needed book that in great Biblical detail and with tender and powerful truth helps the reader to embrace the fact that God has given them a new heart to replace the old, deceitful one and a new identity as holy and forgiven rather than sinner. Recover Your Good Heart is a healing, freeing, and empowering must read for every Christ follower.
