Who Told You That You Are Naked? Genesis 3:11: Live Without the Bondage of Sickness and Suffering by Guy Right is a timely message of hope for readers in a world laden with fear, despair, and suffering. The author offers powerful, biblical reflections on the reality of sin, suffering, and redemption. Although the author sounds preachy in places, this book offers a very healthy concept of God, a God who goes out in search of fallen man, who restores man to his original dignity, a creature in His image, “clothed in light,” and “little less than angels” out of sheer love and grace. The transition from the Old Testament where God is erroneously portrayed as a vindictive creator to the loving, gracious, and forgiving God in the New Testament is salutary.
I was drawn to this book by the catchy title and its symbolic undertone. After the fall of Adam, his eyes were opened and he became conscious of his nakedness, his vulnerability, the absence of grace. He was naked and now he knew it. But then, God never abandons His own creation, which is why He seeks ways to redeem humankind from the grip of sin and suffering. Who Told You That You Are Naked? Genesis 3:11 is well-written and accessible, a book that will be well received by average Christians seeking understanding of God’s ultimate plan for their lives.
It is well structured with different short chapters, each covering a specific topic and laced with biblical quotations that lend authority to Guy Right’s writing. This is a book to be read in Bible Study groups, a powerful message of hope and healing for ailing souls. I recommend this book for anyone who is seeking ways to deepen their faith in the Christian God and to experience deep spiritual healing. It is a perfect gift to our world with conflicting ideologies and misconceptions of God.
