The main concept of this book conveys the framework of Christian Pastoral Care. It is targeted for Christian potteries broken because of life's labours and painful blows -many because of their traumatizing experiences in legalistic and spiritually abusive church communities. The message emphasizes the Great Potter's revulsion of the tarnishing of His name through the abuse perpetrated by so many religious organizations. Allow the Great Potter to reveal what He sees when He sees you. Maybe - you've had a wrong impression of Him all along?
