If you have ever been hurt, lied about, betrayed, or disappointed in any way and you want to be healed and made whole again, put all other books aside and read Jentezen Franklin's newest book, Love Like You've Never Been Hurt.
The book was released on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 and the author appeared on The 700 Club on Thursday, March 8 to discuss it. He was interviewed by Terry Meeuwsen who has been with the Christian News talk show since 1998.
The 55-year-old best-selling author opened up about a family issue that he had to deal with that involved his oldest daughter. In fact, he begins his book by being transparent and sharing his own story of his deep personal pain.
The New York Times bestselling author uses himself as a prime example to show readers how to find the strength, courage, and motivation to love like they have never been hurt. He engages readers by using biblical examples and modern-day stories to illustrate that no one is an island who has never experienced hurts.
In his eighth book, Pastor Franklin said if you have never been hurt before in your life, someday someone will disappoint you, betray you, and break your heart.

Ernestine, I was thinking about purchasing the book by Jentezen Franklin even though I don't need another book. When I saw him on "The 700 Club" he said some powerful things. Even the title has a strong message: "Love Like You've Never Been Hurt."
