Product Description

In his nearly four decades of pastoral, parachurch and nonprofit ministry leadership Steve Macchia has come to understand his own brokenness. He writes:

"I've experienced great success and a few embarrassing failures. . . . In essence, as much as I like to view myself as a good or even a very good leader, I'm more truthfully a blessed and broken leader, one who is daily in need of being . . . redeemed by the Spirit of God who resides in me."

In these pages Steve offers the gifts of love found in 1 Corinthians 13 as the antidote to our brokenness. He writes with personal transparency from his own experience. Each chapter concludes with a powerful spiritual assessment tool to use in reflecting on our own leadership strengths and weaknesses.

By embracing and befriending our own brokenness we can find true wholeness in God's strength. In Broken and Whole you will discover a new way to live in freedom and joy.

Editorial Reviews

"I love this book! It's honest, hopeful and biblically grounded. In Broken and Whole Steve Macchia invites us to explore a number of common habits and patterns that so often go unchecked and yet have grave consequences for our interactions with others. In these pages we find a helpful paradox: facing our brokenness clears space for God to bring something really special—authentic transformation."

-- Nathan Foster, Andrews Chair of Spiritual Formation, Spring Arbor University, author of The Making of an Ordinary Saint

"Steve Macchia has been nosing around our churches and ministries—especially our board meetings. But the good news: instead of meddling, he ministers. When you read chapter four, 'The Tight Grip of Pride and Close-Fisted Greed,' you'll discover a new standard of leader and author transparency. Steve bares it all—and his authenticity ensured I would read every chapter: slowly, prayerfully, confessionally. Every Christian leader—every Christ-follower—will relate to the powerful stories that launch each chapter and the probing Spiritual Leadership Audit questions that conclude each chapter. Broken and Whole is a must-read."

-- John Pearson, author of Mastering the Management Buckets

"Our world values people who break records and outperform others. This pressure to crash through human limits and exercise grandiose powers presents temptations to spin, compare, exaggerate and sell ourselves. Any help we can get in addressing pretense, dishonesty and addiction to self is welcome. Steve offers Jesus' own living path of love as a way forward. The path to awareness, freedom and God is meant for us all."

-- Adele Calhoun, copastor, Redeemer Community Church, author of Spiritual Disciplines Handbook

"I have known Steve Macchia for more than thirty years and I can assure you that Steve has consistently and passionately loved Jesus and the church all these years. I know of no one more qualified to gently guide the reader into a deeper understanding of the relationship between brokenness and the generous love of Jesus. . . . Theologically rich and practically informed, Broken and Whole will challenge you to abandon a shallow understanding of brokenness and instead discover the joy of wholeness, only discovered at the feet of Jesus. I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking a deeper, fuller, richer understanding of the love of Jesus in the midst of a broken world."

-- Jimmy Dodd, PastorServe, author of Survive or Thrive
