I recently recieved a complimentary copy of the book "The Blessing: Giving the Gift of Unconditional Love and Acceptance" by John Trent, Ph.D. and Gary Smalley from Thomas Nelson Publishing as part of the Booksneeze book review team. Little did I realize that this book is actually a reprint of a 25 year old book. The subject matter is as applicable today as it was then. The blessing enlightens the reader into the importance of giving and receiving a blessing. It offers explanations, illustrations, benefits, consequences, advice, and challenges to parents and children of all ages. This concept of giving "The Blessing" is easy, but it's missed in today's society. If I could I'd put this on the 'must read' list of every potential parent.
