I received an Advance Reader’s copy from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
As a follower of Jesus since 2003, this book was a reminder that we all struggle, but am comforted knowing Jesus seeks my heart and that I do not need to be perfect.
What if you knew all the moments of my past that I am not proud of? What if you really knew me, the messy parts that I’ve hoped to forget and worked hard to conceal? For so long, my greatest fear was what you might think of me if you only knew the whole story.
Jamie Ivey lays everything out on the table, let’s her guard down and shares her stories and struggles. The theme of “If You Only Knew” is that Jesus’ love for us is more powerful than a secret, shameful past or failure. The book is not so much about the author’s story, but of grace, mercy and the transforming power of Jesus Christ. He wants us to come before Him, skeltons and all. He loves us regardless. We are quick to put labels on ourselves and feelings of insecurity. God takes our failures and turns them into testimonies of His faithfulness. We all need to stop hiding from Him and let Him in.

What’s going on in our world? Dr. Youssef, a social and cultural expert, explains in detail the destructive forces tearing our world apart. Agressive secularism is stripping our nation of truth, as many Christians are browbeaten into silence. What can save us from this chilling future? The author shows how we can win the war.
The Hidden Enemy: Aggressive Secularism, Radical Islam and the Fight for Our Future peaked my interest simply because our nation and our people are under attack, religious persecution is on the rise and people are afraid to voice their opinion for fear of offending others. This book was quite an eye-opener.
The author shares his own personal testimony of growing up in Egypt during civil unrest and tensions which have existed between Christians and Muslims. Every Christian should read this book and completely understand that we are slowly losing our freedoms.
“They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.” Everyone’s eyes should be on Jesus and no one else.
Romans 1:25 NLT
