Collecting Nebula Award Winners of the 1970s
Bennet throws everything but the kitchen sink in this book. At times the author is actually able to connect some of the dots, tie a few lose threads, but more often than not, the sexual and erotic exploits of the characters overshadows some very serious and at times quite profound social commentary. I'd certainly recommend this book for group reading. Go to Amazon. Discover the best of shopping and entertainment with Amazon Prime.

But I walked out scarred for life. Parks sexually abused me.
I didn't understand what was going on. I didn't know what to do. He changed. I didn't recognize the man he became the moment that garage door closed. I was absolutely terrified. When he finished, he invited me to "come back tomorrow.
Lord of dark places by Bennett, Hal
The words he spoke, and the acts he committed, left me confused and devastated. I felt stained and ruined. And, I felt like it was my choice … my fault. That's what he told me. I felt dirty and filled with shame. Over the years, I perfected the art of pretending everything was OK. I was good at wearing masks. From the outside, I looked great. However, inside I felt completely unworthy of any good thing.
The Gospel for our Dark Places
When I experienced success, I sabotaged myself or quit. I apologized for the good I did and downplayed my God-given strengths. Jesus gave His life to prove how valued we are to Him and to His Kingdom. Because of His shed blood … His sacrifice … we don't have to live in fear or condemnation of anything past or present, whether it was our fault or not. Understanding my identity as a daughter of the One True God ushered me into a new place.
When I knew that truth, believed that truth and walked in the power of that truth, Jesus freed me from my shame and guilt. I have to continually remind myself of my value and worth to God. Yes, even four decades later, I still have flashbacks of what happened that horrible afternoon. In those moments, I remind myself again: By Your wounds I am healed.
Thank You, Jesus. Parks has no hold on me anymore. I ask forgiveness for my sins every day.
