Living life is complicated at times. The journey of faith and belief is a mixture of doubt, mystery, fulfilment, and a whole lot more. It’s tempting to conclude others have it easier. I believe that the more we share our story with transparency and humility the greater the encouragement to one another. God is good and faithful; my writing affirms that truth while acknowledging my wobbly working it out.
John Cox presents his life experiences in knowing God and his struggles with faith as a pastor. Reading the book feels like lying down in the grass and having a casual conversation with a friend.
This book is one of the best apologetics that I have read and it is right up-to-date and relevant for today’s reader…..
This book is great because it’s written in such an engaging and personal way by someone who is of our time, a person whose had experience changing continents, changing lives, going through divorce, heartache and upheaval, who uses modern technology and isn’t afraid of sharing the personal experiences of doubt, trauma and pain to get across his message.
Broken for Good – A True Story of Betrayal, disillusionment, and believing again It’s the book I wish I never had to write, because it’s awkward to acknowledge personal failure. But that would be to give shame the upper hand. In contrast to my/our failures is the faithfulness of God… particularly to people like me (and you).
Well-written with an encouraging message to all who face life’s struggles and need to appreciate the importance of God’s unconditional love and His Grace.
Not only was this book a raw and revealing look at the anatomy of a fall from grace, but beautiful insight into the brokenness that led to the fall, and then the incredible redemption.
