Product Description

Christianity is messy. Unanswered prayers. Painful choices. Unresolved regrets. We're called to have faith, and yet we doubt. We try to be perfect, but we fall short. This is the chaos. It's all around us. There's no limit to it. And there's no quick fix for it.
Both annoyingly honest and refreshingly humorous, Messy reassures Christians that God can reveal Himself in their clutter. Author and pastor A.J. Swoboda offers biblical insight and vivid, personal stories to redefine faith from something that must be perfect to something that is imperfect, but can still give beauty, meaning, and purpose to a messy life. As entertaining as it is challenging, this book teaches Christians what it means to trust in each other, in grace, in hope, and in a Savior who defied the rules of death. Here's to finding joy in your chaos!

Publisher's Description

Christianity is messy. Unanswered prayers. Painful choices. Unresolved regrets. We're called to have faith, and yet we doubt. We try to be perfect, but we fall short. This is the chaos. It's all around us. There's no limit to it. And there's no quick fix for it.

Christianity far underperforms the Christ it talks about. But the good news is this: God works in the mess. He gets a kick out of these disturbing, disorderly moments because in these moments, we learn to trust Him. What if we all trusted Jesus? How would the world look different? How would we look different?

Both annoyingly honest and refreshingly humorous, "Messy" reassures Christians that God can reveal Himself in their clutter. Author and pastor A.J. Swoboda offers biblical insight and vivid, personal stories to redefine faith from something that must be perfect to something that is imperfect, but can still give beauty, meaning, and purpose to a messy life. As entertaining as it is challenging, this book teaches Christians what it means to trust in each other, in grace, in hope, and in a Savior who defied the rules of death. Here's to finding joy in your chaos

    Have you ever asked yourself why your life seems to be messed up? Life is messy and so often we seem to puke out the reality of our need for God and his holiness. One of the things that make God so awesome (despite his awesomeness) is that he loves us when we are messy. He meets us in our mess. We are not perfect yet God loves to work his perfection in us as we toil through the garbage, confusion, questions, and doubts that plague our lives

    A.J. Swaboda brings a striking combination of humor and seriousness to describe how God likes us messy. We are messy people. As such God wants us to come to him without trying to cover it all up. With brutal honesty, lacking no fear to tackle sensitive issues, A.J. Swaboda conveys God's truth that will have you laughing one second and caught in silent conviction the next.

    Seriously, go check out A.J. Swaboda's book, Messy. You will find God in the mess and be able to laugh at yourself here and there too!

    Note: I received this book for free and these thoughts and opinions are my own.
