Withstanding the Lie by Roger Brewer & Nicole Brewer

I don’t believe I’ve reviewed any self-help book at carp(e) libris reviews yet.  But the opportunity came up recently to review one, and its focus on helping people who have been the target of discrimination is certainly something that could help many of us.  Withstanding the Lie by father and daughter team Roger and Nicole Brewer is literally healing between the covers of a book.  If you’ve ever experienced any sort of discrimination, whether it’s due to your race, religion, sex, size, physical ability, etc., and if that discrimination hurt you, made you hate, or somehow affected you so that you are unable to heal and move beyond it, then you’ll want to get a copy of Withstanding the Lie.

Both of the Brewers have experienced discrimination in their lives, but neither are bitter or hateful.  They’ve learned how to move beyond the pain the incidents caused, and now they’re passing on their knowledge to others.  I found the information insightful and sensitive.  In fact, while reading the book I came up against a problem wherein I was able to apply something I was learning from the book.  I was able to avert a situation that could have easily mushroomed into a hurtful experience for both me and the other person involved.  While the Brewers are quick to let you know that fixing the hurt takes time, there is much to be learned from Withstanding the Lie that a reader will be able to apply to their life immediately.
