"Eden's approach differs substantially from books on 'inner healing'"

First Things online columnist William Doino, Jr. has a beautiful and thought-provoking review of my new book Remembering God's Mercy: Redeem the Past and Free Yourself from Painful Memories in which he observes:
Eden’s approach differs substantially from books on “inner healing,” because it reverses the process often recommended by the latter. Instead of starting with oneself, and trying to recall every painful trauma for God to treat, Eden begins with Christ’s sacrifice, and encourages us to unite our wounds to his, as a means of receiving his infinite mercy. She also places a high priority on the Sacraments—especially Confession and the Holy Eucharist—whose transformative qualities she describes movingly.
Read the rest at the First Things website. Remembering God's Mercy is available from Marytown, Aquinas & More, and wherever fine Catholic books are sold.
