Critic Reviews

"Their ideas about trust, loyalty, and how to damage relationships will be helpful to people as they work through personal obstacles to having close friends. Though explicitly Christian, the authors use their faith in a measured way that doesn't overshadow the practical value of their advice." (AudioFile)

Warning: this is a religious book!

What would have made The Power of a Positive Friend better?

Omit constant religious references - I did not mean to buy a sermon!

Would you ever listen to anything by Karol Ladd and Terry Ann Kelly again?


Would you be willing to try another one of Karol Ladd and Terry Ann Kelly ’s performances?


Any additional comments?

Audible needs to post an obvious warning when a book is so strongly religious that it is offensive, even to those of us who grew up religious. I do not want to unknowingly buy a sermon!!

The privileged view of Christianity

I was disappointed in this book ... from the sorority sisterhood to the jealousy between haves and have nots, the authors have a cloyingly saccharin image of the world. It is certainly not the world nor does it even begin to address the challenges that many Christians of my acquaintance have endured. I had hoped that it would reinforce or build upon the lessons of my friends during my own journey, but it is simply a superficial book.
