What happens when your ideals and desires, plans and strategies, all go awry? From what sources might one find the resolve to begin a rebuilding process? "The fact is," writes Gordon MacDonald in Rebuilding Your Broken World, "the God of the Bible is a God of the rebuilding process. And not enough broken people know that."
No stranger himself to brokenness, Gordon MacDonald draws from personal experience and discusses the likely sources of pain, the humiliation, and the long- and short-range consequences of a broken personal world. And he offers encouraging answers to the questions everyone asks when their worlds fall apart: Is there a way back?
Gordon MacDonald has been a pastor and author for more than fifty years. He serves as Chancellor at Denver Seminary, as editor-at-large for Leadership Journal, and as a speaker at leadership conferences around the world. His books includeBuilding Below the Waterline, Who Stole My Church, A Resilient Life, and Ordering Your Private World. Gordon and his wife, Gail, live in New Hampshire.
Grace Thorne5 Stars Out Of 5April 30, 2008Grace ThorneAfter a series of significant losses (home, career, long-term friends that just weren't, church family) in a brief period of time and the sense of belonging that goes with all of that, I read this book and found solace in the realization that my feelings of invisibility were not life-threatening. Feeling adrift and alone, the comfort in this book has sustained me for the journey of rebuilding that has evolved.
Shelley Martin5 Stars Out Of 5October 5, 2004Shelley MartinI've read other books on broken world people and this was by far the best book I have ever read. I would highly recommend this book to others. We think we are the only person who has gone through what we're going through until we read about someone else just like us. Lastly, not everyone is a super-christian, there are some of us who just haven't made it yet and Gordon MacDonald has helped me to realize that.
