Publisher's Description

Tucked into Abraham’s biography is the story of Hagar, a young Egyptian slave with whom Abraham had a son named Ishmael.  Hagar stood out because she was wounded—not physically, but in ways that were as emotionally and spiritually painful as any injury to a body would be. Some wounds were provoked by her own bad behavior, but others were inflicted by those who considered themselves God’s people.

 

Anne Graham Lotz too has been wounded by God’s people. Some wounds have been deeper than others, some have come out of nowhere, and still others have been provoked by her own behavior, but all of the wounds have been deeply painful. They seemed to hurt even more when the wounders wrapped their behavior in a semblance of religion or piety.

 

As Hagar’s story unfolds, you will discover that wounded people often become wounders themselves. While Anne identifies with the wounded, the unpleasant reality is that she also identifies with the wounders, because she has been one, too.  She knows from experience that wounding is a cycle that needs to be broken.  And by God’s grace, it can be.

 

Many have had similar experiences. And perhaps you are among those who have been so deeply hurt that you have confused God’s imperfect people with God. Maybe you have even run away from God as a result.  Or perhaps you have been a wounder to the extent that you are living in a self-imposed exile, believing you are unworthy to be restored to a warm, loving relationship with God or with God’s people. Whatever your hurts may be, Wounded by God’s People helps you to begin a healing journey—one that enables you to reclaim the joy of God’s presence and all the blessings God has for you.

 

God loves the wounded.  And the wounders.

    This book by Anne Graham Lotz gave great insight on being wounded and being a wounder, which allows one to put their hurt, something we all experience, in proper perspective so that we are not bound by our hurts and we can more easily glorify God despite our hurts. If you are open to it, God can use this book to change your perspective on your wounds, allowing you to separate your hurts from the one who hurt you so that you may still love regardless of how hurt you have been.

    This entire book is helpful and clearly founded on the author's personal experience, but I was amazed at the section on Hagar. At the time, I was preparing a devotional about her, and I found this book to be very helpful.

    I really enjoyed this book. As a pastors wife, I too have been wounded by church people. Her incorporation of Hagar's story added to the points that were being made. Well worth your time to read this wonderful book!

    I'm still reading this book and really enjoying it. Mrs. Lotz is showing me a side to the Hagar story I've never seen. I like that she is so honest about her own hurts....both those received and given.

    Expected this to be a book on how to witness to people hurt by the institutional church, to draw them back to the Lord, but instead its quite personal, addressing individuals hurts in the author's life and your own. Far less "solutions" than I'd hoped, just compassion with a tone of unresolved hurt on her part.
