Publisher's Description

Learn How to Look Through Life's Tragedies and See the Lavish Blessings God Has For You!
 
"Shattered dreams," writes Dr. Larry Crabb, "are never random. They are always a piece in a larger puzzle, a chapter in a larger story. The Holy Spirit uses the pain of shattered dreams to help us discover our desire for God, to help us begin dreaming the highest dream."
 
To help you understand this neglected truth in the deepest and most helpful way, author and counselor Larry Crabb has written a wise, hopeful, honest, and realistic examination of life’s difficulties and tragedies. He wraps insights around the bold story of Naomi in the Bible’s book of Ruth.
 
As Crabb retells and illuminates this sometimes disturbing and often profoundly touching story, we are shown how God stripped Naomi of happiness in order to prepare her for joy. And we gain an unforgettable picture of how God uses shattered dreams to release better dreams and a more fulfilling life for those He loves.
 
Shattered dreams have the power to change our lives for good. Forever.

    This book is to not be read by those who want an easy fix for their pain. God is in the business of healing hurts, but we must allow Him to do it His way. Embracing our pain enables us to see and experience what God has for us and make us into the persons He wants us to be. Crabb reminds us that it God who does the healing, not ourselves and the process will be painful but so worth it! This book is for those who really want to know God.

    This book addresses the hard questions and the hard times and does not mask it with Chistian platitudes. It is revolutionizing my desire for God and I hope my daily walk as His child living in this broken world with the certain hope of heaven where we will no longer be broken!

    It takes courage, and a rather other-worldly conviction, to write a book that's not a self-contained experience of satisfaction. This book, in focusing on the gift of shattered dreams, is like a spiritual leaf-blower, blasting away all that covers your true grounding in God, and like a leaf-blower, it also kicks up a lot of other things, like worms and rot in the soul. But it unearths more than it answers, and leaves your soul, and your story, open-ended, ready for a fresh, deeply personal encounter of God. The outstanding workbook accompanying this edition insistently fosters these encounters. Like a good spiritual director, the book is careful to stay out of the way of becoming more of a resource to you than God's living presence.

    When I finished the last chapter, at first I felt disappointed, and maybe a little cheated, having secretly hoped, after pages and pages of pent up anticipation, for a neat and tidy conclusion. But after a couple of days of turning to the living God, God spoke, as only God can do, to my unique soul. God gave me an image for an anchoring hope in Him that was not articulated as such in the book, but which I was made ready to receive because of the book. And now, I wouldn't have it any other way. Now I'm glorifying God, not Larry Crabb, and I'm grateful to Crabb as a brother on the journey.

    Working through this book is an eminently worthwhile experience I would recommend to anyone desiring deeper fellowship with and purer hope in God. When I say ‘working', however, I'm not kidding-this book requires spiritual labor. But it's good work if you can get it. -

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group, in exchange for writing an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review.
