About "A New Day"
* Can I break free from my eating disorder? * Why do I struggle so much with anxiety? * Where can I go with my shame and despair? 'I'm controlling and insecure and desperate to prove my own worth,' admits Emma Scrivener. 'I'm a Christian, but I don't always feel like it.' There are lots of how-to books out there. In terms of the practicalities of recovery, they're brilliant. What they don't address is the spiritual dimension. However, even when writing about 'spiritual recovery', the author confesses that it's tempting to offer some sort of programme or strategy. 'But I don't think I've got one,' she says. What she does offer are practical suggestions for how to apply gospel truths to practical circumstances. With honesty, examples from real life (including her own), Emma connects with her reader. She shows how the gospel can speak to every heart and every addiction, equipping readers with confidence in Christ's sufficiency and the power of his Word and Spirit to bring change where change seems impossible.

A wonderfully helpful book on a whole range of issues so many of us face. It was a little confronting at times, as Emma is very very honest. But few authors write with the honesty Emma does, and this is a gift to her readers - I connect with a number of the struggles Emma hadhas. And the way that Emma weaves God's goodness and grace and redemptive power in and through the story is just a sheer delight. I'll be reading this again soon, and passing it on
