I don't know how to start this review. 
I must say that perfect timing for this book. I really need to read it. I loved it so much. 
I realized so much things.
Mainly, I realized that Jesus wants to reveal his glory in the places of my shame and the area that I'm most ashamed of right now is the area he most desires to reveal his glory in my life.
This book teached me so many things. I love that in the end of the each chapter have questions to reflect. 
This book is life-changing! I think every catholic need to read it. I hope it will be translate in portuguese.
Thank you Netgalley and publisher for free ARC in exchange of honest review. All thoughs are my own.

So many of us suffer from deep violations of our person. The pain can be overwhelming at times. As a result, untold numbers of people need healing from the sexual wounds that have been inflicted upon them by family members, acquaintances, and, in some instances, strangers. 

This is why Be Restored: Healing Our Sexual Wounds Through Jesus' Merciful Love is such a treasure. The book offers a prescription for emotional and spiritual healing that is sorely needed in today's society. With sensitivity and wisdom, author Bob Schuchts provides survivors of sexual trauma a roadmap to restoration in Christ.

As Schuchts writes, "I am confident that Jesus desires to bring restoration in every area of your sexual brokenness, past or present. My continual experience as a therapist, teacher, and conference leader applying these truths assures me that he will restore you to sexual wholeness to the degree that you invest yourself in this process and actively seek his help."

Sexual wounds can keep us isolated, fearful, and distrustful. Through this powerful book, readers can find the solace and joy that come from communion with Christ. As Schuchts notes, "This is why Jesus came to earth: to restore the glory of our broken human nature."

Bob Schucts has written another powerful book about the healing presence of Jesus that is available to us in the sacraments and prayer. Many people ignore sexual sin or hide it and brokenness is always the result. Some people may have been wounded or violated by others through no fault of their own and struggle with shame. Bob shows how we are created in God's image to be whole and the power of the Holy Spirit can restore us to health in this area when we cooperate with Him.
