Finding God in the Ruins

When the reality of your pain doesn’t line up with what you’ve been taught in church, then what? While many abandon their faith or embrace hopelessness, it is possible to discover the God who heals your heart in the midst of the pain.

Matt Bays has been where you are. His unforgettable stories of loss and healing will usher you into a life where gratitude overpowers anger, hope overcomes despair, and hunger for God replaces indifference to God. With a fresh and original writing style, Bays demonstrates that true redemption is far more powerful than the temporary fixes of sanitized Christianity.

My thoughts: I appreciated the honesty of the author in this book, since he is very open about the sexual dysfunction that was in his home during his childhood and teen years that caused him to doubt God's love. This book does a great job of sharing the stories of brokenness and how God works through our hurts. I thought Matt does a great job of sharing his heart. I do have mixed feelings about his use of some scriptures, but overall feel like this is a great book to read about the difficult subject of God and pain.
I received this book from Lit Fuse in exchange for my honest review.
