Do you know somebody who's experienced deep loss or pain---or who craves more than trite answers about suffering? With pastoral wisdom, personal transparency, and unforgettable stories, Bays shares his struggles about growing up in a dysfunctional home---and shows the path to an authentic hope and real redemption that will enlarge your understanding of God. Includes questions for group discussion or individual reflection. 256 pages, softcover from Cook.
When the reality of your pain doesnt line up with what youve been taught in church, then what? While many abandon their faith or embrace hopelessness, it is possible to discover the God who heals your heart in the midst of the pain.
Matt Bays has been where you are. His unforgettable stories of loss and healing will usher you into a life where gratitude overpowers anger, hope overcomes despair, and hunger for God replaces indifference to God. With a fresh and original writing style, Bays demonstrates that true redemption is far more powerful than the temporary fixes of sanitized Christianity.
