Dr. Charles Stanley is the senior pastor of the First Baptist Church of Atlanta, where he has served for more than 40 years. He is a New York Times bestselling author who has written more than 60 books, including the bestselling devotional Every Day in His Presence. Dr. Stanley is the founder of In Touch Ministries. The In Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley program is transmitted throughout the world on more than 1,200 radio outlets and 130 television stations/networks, and in language projects in more than 50 languages. The award-winning In Touch devotional magazine is printed in four languages with more than 12 million copies each year. Dr. Stanleys goal is best represented by Acts 20:24: "Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesusthe work of telling others the Good News about God's mighty kindness and love." This is because, as he says, "It is the Word of God and the work of God that changes peoples lives."

I highly recommend it. I had some trepidation because of the word "brokenness", afraid maybe it meant being beaten down and demoralized so you will bend to God's will. Having listened to Dr. Stanley however, I was pretty sure my belief about brokenness was skewed by some past bad experiences I had and that I needed to read the book for my own spiritual growth, so forced myself to read it. I experienced more and more peace and freedom as I read the book. The examples of the people in the Bible he uses and how he explains how God worked in their lives was very helpful as I examined my own life, especially Moses as God has used Hebrews 11:24-28 to strengthen my relationship with Him in the past. As I read the book I came to understand how much more the people around me will be blessed and see Jesus in my life when I allow Him to remove all of the dead branches in me that aren't producing fruit for Him.
Denise5 Stars Out Of 5March 14, 2010DeniseThe Blessings of Brokenness will help you cope with God's modeling process of you. He's modeling you to the character of Jesus Christ and anything that doesn't fit His will He'll take out of your life. Circumstances are God's tools to mold you. This book will help you see how God causes all things to work together for your good and His glory if you'll only trust Him. I recommend this book to all believers questioning why God's allowing certain circumstances in their lives.
