Abi G5 Stars Out Of 5A journey from heartbreak to hopeNovember 15, 2021Abi GMeets Expectations: 5This is a book about pain, growth and change. It is told from five different perspectives, but each expression is one of raw honesty and complete transparency. The Evans family vulnerably share the ups and downs of their journey as each of them individually came from a place of heart break to humble surrender. They share their experiences not with regret, or to rebuke the reader for feeling the same... but rather in a way that allows the reader permission to feel the human emotions that come with loss and pain, encouraging a perspective of hope that draws us closer to God, allowing us to experience His grace, healing power, and abundant love in a more tangible way.
It's a free flowing dialogue of hope and trust in a sovereign God who's ways don't always make sense to us, and an encouragement of intentional growth in our relationship with God by increasing, trust, time and intimacy with Him.
The words Dr Tony Evans uses when sharing about the great reset is directed to the nation of the United States of America... but his wisdom and advice applies to people in every nation all over the world. The Evans, Hurst and Shirer families demonstrate through these pages how it is possible to adjust to a new normal after deep loss and grief through the healing power and hope that is in Christ. It is the epitome of Romans 8:28.
I ended this book the same way I started... in tears. But unlike the tears shed in the beginning chapters, tears of grief from their deep heartbreak and loss, the tears at the end were ones of wonder. Wonder at a God who can take seasons of brokenness and make them testimonies of healing and strength. A real life, modern day demonstration that the struggle was part of the process, and the process was necessary for progress.
Divine Disruption is a book that will change peoples lives all over the world. If you have ever experienced any kind of disappointment, loss or grief, or know anyone who has, I would highly recommend this book for you.
Pam5 Stars Out Of 5Devine DisruptioonMarch 24, 2022PamBest book I've read in a long time. Honest, encouraging, affirming for one who is living the trauma of losing a spouse. Saw the you-tube video first, couldn't wait to get the book. Each chapter reminded me of the hope of glory I and, all believers, have in Christ Jesus, no matter what the circumstances on this earth look like. An eternal perspective. All ready asked my church to order it for the library. Can't give up my copy - it is underlined and highlighted.
CT4 Stars Out Of 5Divine DisruptionDecember 15, 2021CTI think this is an incredible gift to readers who have been blessed by one of these great ministry leaders over the years, to see behind the scenes and into the authentic faith journey for these family members. Each family member handled their tough year differently and faithfully. A great tool and blessing as people walk through their own tough seasons. More of a sweet gift to read versus great new insight.
Lance5 Stars Out Of 5A Must Read for those that are GrievingOctober 15, 2021LanceQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Divine Disruption: Holding on to Faith When Life Breaks Your Heart provides a rare and intimate glimpse inside Tony Evans and his family after enduring an extended season of great trial and loss. In a two year period Tony and his family endured the loss of eight family members including his brother, sister, brother-in-law, niece, father and precious wife, Lois, of fifty years. It was also during this time his daughter, Priscilla Shirer, underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in her lung. Then, his other daughter, Crystal, was worked up for a suspicious growth on her leg. All of this was followed by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown giving Tony and his family much time to pray, reflect upon and grieve their tremendous losses.
In this book you will hear from Tony and each of his three adult children, who are all involved in ministry, as they all openly discuss their struggles, disappointments and the role their faith played as they continue to work through and process their grief by leaning into God and onto one another. I so appreciated their honesty and transparency as each shared their thoughts and feelings as to the hope they were able to hold onto even in the darkest and most difficult times. This book is a must read for those grieving the loss of a loved one.
