    Objects of His AffectionScotty Smith writes with compassion and vulnerability. In this book, he looks first at the deep, outrageous, tender love the Father has for His children and then at the many obstacles that stand in the way of our living loved. Wherever you stand in your Divine Romance, you'll want to read this reminder of how completely you are adored.

    beautiful. i've always loved scotty smith's writing. this book gave me a much deeper insight into his life and history and made him more vulnerable and relatable. and his letter to his mother at the end of the book absolutely did me in. i pray we all truly grasp just how loved we are by God. thanks for the reminder, mr. smith.

    This is a wonderful book about how God loves and pursues us, His people. It is also a touching personal story of someone who dealt, or didn't deal, with a tragedy. I highly recommend this book to anyone. Scotty Smith has a knack for bringing big truths home in a way that's easy to read.
