Total Turnaround: 12 Keys to Breakthrough in Every Area of Your Life

Danette Joy Crawford. Destiny Image, $15.99 trade paper (272p) ISBN 978-0-7684-0408-1
According to Crawford (Don't Quit in the Pit), a "total turnaround"—a major change in outlook and circumstances—is usually a process. The turnaround she refers to isn't the type one can see through from beginning to end. This turnaround doesn't happen on a human time schedule; one can't predict when or where it will occur. However, it is precipitated within the heart, attitude, faith, and the overall development of one's Christian character—and prompted by God in God's timing. Sometimes, even an overnight turnaround is possible. Crawford, an international evangelist, speaker, TV host, and founder of Joy Ministries Evangelistic Association, walks readers through 12 total turnarounds in the areas of emotions, self-image, health, finances, and marriage and relationships. Each chapter contains abundant examples from her life, the lives of others she's encountered, and those of key Bible figures. Scripture is braided through each chapter, as Crawford utilizes a Bible-based teaching style within her writing. The book has a charismatic tone throughout, so may best appeal to those who practice this form of Christianity, with its emphasis on the gifts of the spirit. (Apr.)
