Book Review: My Christian Friend Slept With My Husband

My Christian Friend Slept With My Husband, written by Tresor Currie has just been published this year by Amazon in electronic and print formats. We live in perilous times where many women are betrayed daily and yearly by the very people who were supposed to protect them. This book is about a woman who was betrayed by her best friend. Her skills in storytelling will capture you spellbound until you reach the end of the book. Every chapter and page is the confluence for suspense and drama as the actors variegate from friend, husband, friends of friends and other Christians, creating a totality of effect that makes this book a must read. When you are faced with such betrayal, it is difficult to apply the very tenets you have known or even preached. The only thing that boils in your mind is vengeance, even though you know it belongs to the Lord. In reading this book, you will see how God transitioned our sister from an avenger to a forgiver. He did not only give her a new husband, He gave her a better husband, a better Job and augmented her statue and grace.
Sometimes it is very painful and even more painful when you are the person God has used to make the transgressor. Why did God permit that good people go through such torments and experiences? Curie lays down the theology like no other person would have done so, especially because in her downtrodden moments, God was her buckler and shield, a constant presence in the lowly land. El Shaddai gave her revelation upon revelations which she shares in the book.
Without reservation, Curie traces the cause of her demise and subsequently why the marriage went kaput. The issue with many people is that they absolve themselves of every responsibility, so they redo the same mistake again unconsciously. That is why we are experiencing many divorces or unhappy marriages these days, even by people in their second and multiple marriages.
Your marriage may be at the brink right now without you knowing it. You may even be making the same mistake she did without knowing it. You may not even know what to do to regain your situation if you don’t read this book. You may also not have the tools to regain a new husband or get a new job or overturn your situation from negative to positive if you don’t read this book. I will urge you to read this book, even if your marriage is fine. To be forewarned is to be forearmed so you may discover some of the knaveries the devil uses to bring unhappiness in people’s lives by destroying their marriages.
A few years ago, we watched a mime in church by our youths. Death and a man signed a pact not to do anything without telling each other. In the pact, death promised never to take the man without warning him. So when it was time to take him, death began taking those close to him as warning. The man failed to heed the warning shots because he was waiting for death to come in person or send him a letter that “I will soon come to take you”. One day, death showed up in front of his door and told him that he had come for him. The man refused that he was not going because death has violated the covenant. Death said no, we promised to warn each other and when I was taking those close to you, I was warning you. Without being prepared, Death took him away!
This book could be that warning God is giving you about your marriage and situation. In that simple style but culturally relevant content with vivid imagery, the author presents the lessons unparalleled in any book that holds the secret to your marriage, happiness and life. Read this book and you will never regret it!
