The author has discovered that many Christians struggle to reconcile their perception of God as both a loving parent and a stern judge. In this book she helps those who haven't truly received God's love because they are afraid of his anger and disapproval. She explores the source of this confusion, so that God's genuine character can be better understood and His love can be experienced on an entirely new level. -- From book jacket.
