    In this collaborative book, Tony Evans and his four adult children share a personal inside look at the divine disruptions they've walked through as a family. Starting with the death of a cousin, the Evans family endured loss after loss, resulting in the death of six family members and culminating with the arrival of a global pandemic. Life was literally turned upside down, leaving them all questioning, "Where are you, God?"

    This book, Divine Disruption, is a result of a promise the Evans children made to their mother before she passed from cancer. For years, it had been her wish that they write a collaborative book, and it was after her death that they found a common project: how do you work through life's unexpected losses and challenges, while holding on to faith? Their unique voices share how they found peace with God, persevered through the difficulties of life, and determined to work past the disruptions of life.

    This book was honest, transparent, and, at times, heart breaking. With the loss of their mother only a few years removed, the pain is understandably still fresh. The authors don't shy away from the unfairness of the past few years, but rather lean into the sovereignty of God through Biblical wisdom and open conversation. One of my favorite quotes came near the end of the book when Jonathan Evans says:

    "Faith is depending on God when you're living in the unknown, and sometimes the Lord lets us hit rock bottom so we can experience that He is the rock at the bottom."

    Wow! That one powerful statement gave me a lot to meditate on in my own life. And that's just one of the many insightful observations in this book.

    Divine Disruptions was my first introduction to any of the Evans' writings, but I can guarantee, it won't be my last.

    I read an early copy of Divine Disruption. I love that we get multiple perspectives and personalities in this book. As I read, it felt as though I was sitting at a table with the family and listening to their stories. I appreciate their honesty in talking about their faith and their grief. It was refreshing to see them wrestle for their faith and not just bury their questions and emotions. Their testimonies of what God spoke to them during those times and putting what they know and preach into practice left me feeling encouraged.

    Divine 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.
