Blind spots are real and can cause a lifetime of pain, anguish, and second guesses. Blind spots can keep you from being all that God has wired you up to be. What you don't see can genuinely hurt you, but thankfully we have a Savior who can help us identify our blind spots, forgive our sins, and give us the power and desire to see our blind spots removed. 
– Tim Riddle

About the Book
Blind Spots: What You Don't See Can Hurt You • We all know blind spots are dangerous when we're changing lanes at 70 mph on an interstate highway. But just as critical are the blind spots that block us from seeing the truth about ourselves and others. No one is immune to either kind.

Blind spots are, by definition, invisible to us. No matter how often we are reminded to check our blind spots, we can't at least on our own. Our only hope is for God and others to come alongside us and help point them out. Once identified we can start becoming our best and most authentic self.

Coauthors Tim Riddle and Fil Anderson help us learn how to recognize and avoid blind spots to become more like Jesus, remembering the Holy Spirit is the revealer and healer. By drawing on stories in Scripture and personal experience, the coauthors invite us to engage in an approachable, logical conversation about what blind spots are, why they exist, how to identify and remove them, how to keep them from returning, and how to point them out in others.

In this practical resource full of biblical wisdom, Riddle and Anderson aim to lovingly guide readers toward spiritual growth to live fully and freely as God's dearly loved, completely forgiven, and forever free daughters and sons.

Blind Spots helps us find concrete, biblical solutions to the problem of these shortcomings, cultivating a desire for godliness and a greater appreciation for the Spirit's work in our own lives.
