The Lord gave Patricia Hill a chance to die in the flesh and to begin her new life with Him. She had to bury her old self to write this book the way God asked her to. The Lord works in mysterious ways, and He will show you yourself in a beautiful way, and then He will show you the ugliness inside of you too. The best picture of you comes from the Lord. The most beautiful picture you can imagine is perfection toward the Lord's will for you and in you.
