This book should be read by anyone who has a desire to gain a fuller perspective of the ways in which God loves us, especially during the tough times. Something I found very fascinating about this book is its delicate balance of biblical teachings and Kelli's personal experiences. I will be the first to admit that I am not a fan of books that are loaded with personal stories and experiences of the author's that drown out the true message and essence of the book.

Thankfully, Kelli did not do that at all.

Kelli has an uncanny ability to wonderfully weave her experiences into the examination of each of the seven women and the way that Jesus Christ demonstrated love to them.

I was honestly shocked that the personal experiences she shared truly drew me in. I really enjoyed reading how experiences in her life correlated with each of the women's encounter with Jesus.

It added depth to the points that she was making and did not overshadow the most important lesson readers are to take away - Jesus Christ's love for them.


One of my favorite things about this book is the Scriptural context that Kelli provides along with the passages of Scripture that she explores. This is something that very few writers tend to share when examining Scripture.

I really liked that Kelli understood the importance of readers not just reading the Scriptures she shared, but understanding the context surrounding them. This was a wonderful addition and something that I believe more authors should consider included in their works, when applicable.

Many people may think they have a decent understanding of the love of Christ, but I've discovered that there is always more that we can learn about Christ, including this love for us. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to discover a unique perspective of Christ's love for us and to anyone who may be struggling to see how Christ truly loves them amidst the trials and troubles they encounter in life. I was honestly not sure what to expect, but it far exceeded anything I was anticipating.

This book is all about the multi facets of God's love which is so complex and amazing. This book shows Christ's encounter with 7 women of the Bible and the different ways his love was lavished on them and how that same love is offered to us today. Written with warmth and in an engaging manner this book was very thought provoking and engaging read that really made me think of the love of Christ in a different light.

May and the menacing bull. I loved the comparison between the persistent bull and God. Some examples are infertility, caring for aging parents, and adoption. By sharing these details, I was able to identify with her and the book personally spoke to me.

From chapter one on obeying the call. Rather, it often means following His footsteps into the hard and even impossible places. It sometimes means being willing to stay in that space for as long as it takes-maybe even for a lifetime.

Page From chapter three on insecure attachment. All of us have emotional wounds that need to be healed. These wounds might come from obvious traumatic experiences-the death of someone close to us, an accident that took away our sense of safety, the divorce of our parents, some sort of abuse.

But wounds can also occur more slowly and subtly. Sometimes we stuff or numb the pain because the thoughts of facing it head-on is too much to bear. Sometimes these old pains run so deep and, as adults, they are so much a part of who we are that we get used to them.

These topics are personal to me. The call of God is not necessarily a place I always want to be. But, it is the place where God has planted me. There are things that I can not see that needs work.

In other words, the quality of ebook screens definitely does vary. The problem with ASCII is that the text contains very little formatting information: you can't distinguish headings from text, there's only one basic font, and there's no bold or italics. The basic idea of PDF was to store an almost exact replica of a printed document in an electronic file that people could easily read on screens or print out, if they preferred.

The HTML files people use to create web pages are another kind of electronic information. Every HTML page on a website is a bit like a separate page in a book, but the links on web pages mean you can easily hop around until you find exactly the information you want. The links on websites give you powerfully interconnected information that is often much quicker to use than a library of printed books. Most screens are much less sharp than the type in a printed book and it quickly tires your eyes reading in this way.

Even if you can store lots of books on your computer, you can't really take it to bed with you or read it on the beach or in the bath-tub! Now, there's nothing to stop you downloading simple text files onto something like an iPod or a cellphone and reading them, very slowly and painfully, from the small LCD display—but it's not most people's idea of curling up with a good book. What we really need is something with the power of a computer, the portability of a cellphone, and the friendliness and readability of a printed book.

And that's exactly where electronic book readers come in.

How do you read an electronic book file? Currently the two most popular ebook formats are EPUB, a worldwide, open standard that evolved from an earlier standard called OEB Open ebook and widely used by Sony Readers and most other ebook readers, and AZW, a proprietary format developed by site and currently readable only on its site reader. However you go about it, books take up very little space when you store them in electronic format: you could easily fit 10, electronic copies of the Bible onto a single DVD.

Most ebook readers can store hundreds or even thousands of titles at a time and most now have Wi-Fi Internet connections so you can download more books whenever you wish. Photo: You can read electronic books right now, even if you don't have a handheld ebook reader.

There's free electronic book software available for all the popular operating systems. Here's the Caliber electronic book reader running on a normal computer screen, showing the first page of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Beautiful and Damned. The most important part of an ebook reader is the screen. The first ebooks used small versions of LCD laptop screens which have a resolution sharpness of about 35 pixels per cm 90 pixels per inch.

You could easily see the dots making up the letters and it was quite tiring to read for more than a few minutes at a time. The latest ebooks use an entirely different technology called electronic ink.

Instead of using LCD displays, they show words and letters using tiny, black and white plastic granules that move about inside microscopic, spherical capsules under precise electronic control. Displays like this have about twice the resolution of ordinary computer screens, are clearly visible in sunlight, and use much less power.

In fact, they're almost as sharp and easy to read as printed paper. We'll see how these screens work in a moment. The lack of books in electronic format was one of the things that used to put people off using ebook readers—and that's what made site. site already worked with virtually all the world's publishers as a bookseller, so it was able to make huge numbers of titles available for site in electronic format—over 88, books were available on the launch date. Today, most books are available in ebook format as well as print, and many old, long-out-of-print titles have also been resurrected in ebook form.

Photo: Computer screens as we knew them in the late s and early s. At that time, the best screens could display no more than about 64, pixels and often just uppercase text or very crude "pixelated" square block graphics.

Computer games like Space Invaders, shown here, were very primitive—but still highly addictive! Since electronic ink has been crucial to the success of ebooks, let's now take a detailed look at how it works. You're probably reading these words in the same way that I am—by staring at a flat, LCD computer screen.

For people over the age of about 35, who grew up with computers that used blocky green and black screens with just 40 characters across and 25 down, modern screens are wonderful and amazing. But they still have their drawbacks. Look closely, and you can see jagged edges to the letters.

Try to read an LCD screen in direct sunlight and unless the screen has a very bright backlight , you'll really struggle. But the worse thing is that LCD screens lack the lightness, portability, and sheer user-friendliness of ink-printed paper : you can happily read a book for hours, but try the same trick with a computer screen and your eyes will quickly tire.

Magnifying by about 8—10 times and zooming in on a single word, you can see why. The E Ink display makes sharper letters with a uniformly white background. The LCD display blurs its letters with anti-aliasing to make them less jagged, though that makes them harder to read close up. The red, blue, and green colored pixels used to make up the LCD's "white" background are also much more noticeable.

Unlike the E Ink display, an LCD does not use a true white background: it relies on your eye and brain to fuse colored pixels instead. The resolution of E Ink is also far greater: typical LCD displays use around 90 pixels per inch, whereas E Ink displays use at least twice as many pixels.

Back in the early s, the Xerox Corporation that had pioneered photocopiers a decade earlier became concerned about the threat that computers might pose to its core ink-and-paper business: if everyone started using computers, and offices became paperless, what would happen to a company so utterly dependent on paper technology?

The basic idea of electronic ink and paper was and remains very simple: to produce an electronic display with all the control and convenience of a computer screen but the readability, portability, and user-friendliness of paper.

Pierced & Embraced: 7 Life-Changing Encounters with the Love of Christ

How does electronic ink and paper work? Most electronic ink and paper screens use a technology called electrophoresis, which sounds complex but simply means using electricity to move tiny particles in this case ink through a fluid in this case a liquid or gel. Other uses of electrophoresis include DNA testing, where electricity is used to separate the parts of a DNA sample by making them move across a gel, which enables them to be compared with other samples and identified.

Each capsule is filled with a clear fluid and contains two kinds of tiny ink granules: white ones which are positively charged and black ones which are negatively charged. The capsules are suspended between electrodes switched on and off by an electronic circuit, and each one can be controlled individually.

By changing the electric field between the electrodes, it's possible to make the white or black granules move to the top of a capsule the part closest to the reader's eye so it appears like a white or black pixel. By controlling large numbers of pixels in this way, it's possible to display text or pictures.

Animation: Electronic ink works through electrophoresis. Each pixel microcapsule in the display the gray circle contains black negatively charged and white positively charged ink granules. When a positive field shown in blue is applied to the top electrode, the black capsules migrate to the top, making the pixel look black when seen from above; switching the field over makes the granules change position so the pixel appears white.

Advantages and disadvantages of electronic ink If you've tried reading an electronic book, you'll know that electronic ink and paper is much easier to read from for long periods than an LCD computer screen. Since the microcapsules stay in position indefinitely, with little or no electric current, electronic ink displays have extremely low power consumption.

A typical ebook reader with an E Ink display can be used for something like 2—4 weeks of average everyday reading on a single charge—which is much less power than a laptop, tablet, or smartphone.

Low power consumption means low energy use and that translates into an environmental benefit ; in other words, electronic ink and paper is environmentally friendly. What about the energy needed to manufacture your reader in the first place?

According to British environmental auditor Nicola Terry , who's done the math, you've only to read 20—70 ebooks to offset that energy; the Cleantech group has estimated that a site makes savings in carbon emissions after just one year's use. That sounds great, but do bear in mind that emissions from reading and producing books are a trivial part of most people's total emissions the majority of which stem from transport, consumed goods, home heating, and so on. The disadvantages are less obvious until you start using electronic ink in earnest.

First, although the displays work excellently in bright indoor light and daylight, including direct sunlight, they have no light of their own unlike LCD displays, which have backlights shining through them from back to front so you can see them. That makes them hard to use in poor indoor light, especially in the evenings, which is why many early ebook readers were sold with clumsy addon lamps. Fortunately, firms like site now offer readers with built-in lights like the site Paperwhite in our top photo , so the problem of straining over ebooks in the dark has now largely disappeared.

Right: In dark indoor light in the evenings, things are reversed: LCDs are much easier to read and electronic ink displays are a struggle to decipher unless you sit in strong light or use a clip-on light attachment. Electronic ink also takes much longer to build up the image of a page than an LCD screen, which means it's unsuitable for everyday computer displays using any kind of moving image and completely unsuitable for fast-moving images such as computer games and videos.In this book, were told much of Bettys life history and how she met Jim, her loving husband.

It seems the very air produces a type of living music, a tingling of sorts that understands all of your favorite sounds, and presents this as the most grand symphony you can imagine.
