Life never lacks for improvement - in ourselves, in our relationships, in just about everything. But all our brave stabs at getting better, if they ever change anything, are incomplete at best, complete failures at worst. Sometimes much worse.
Unless . . .
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the great "unless" of life - both for those who already believe (but can't believe the messes they're still capable of making), as well as those who don't yet believe but just know their way isn't working.
Recovering Redemption, written with a pastor's bold intensity and a counselor's discerning insight, takes you deeply into Scripture to take you deeply inside yourself, discovering that the heart of all our problems is truly the problem of our hearts. But because of what God has done, and because of what God can do, the most confident, contented person you know could actually be you - redeemed through Jesus Christ.
None of us, really, can do what's required to change our lives for the better, taking what's persistently frustrating and making it perfectly satisfying. Yet as hopeless as that may sound, it is the flat-line truth in which good news comes to life . . . to your life. For just as what's lost can be found, what's wrong can - even now - be recovered.

Matt is currently involved in church planting efforts both locally and internationally through The Village and various strategic partnerships. He serves as president of Acts 29, a worldwide church-planting organization. Over the last 10 years, Acts 29 has emerged from a small band of brothers to nearly 500 churches in the United States and around the world. Beyond speaking at conferences throughout the world, Matt has also written several books, including The Explicit Gospel, published in April 2012, and Creature of the Word, released in October 2012. His greatest joy outside of Jesus is being married to Lauren and being a dad to their three children, Audrey, Reid and Norah.
"Matt Chandler is one of the best Bible preachers on the earth and one of the godliest men I know." -Mark Driscoll, Founding and Preaching Pastor, Mars Hill Church
"Matt Chandler presents the gospel in a way that is balanced, hope-filled, and very, very serious, all the while presented with Matt's trademark humor." -Mark Dever, President, 9Marks
Because we have a tendency to drift from the gospel, we must be reoriented back to the gospel. We must recover a right understanding and application of the gospel. We must see that the gospel is the fuel for salvation and sanctification and the panacea to fix all things.
The heart of the problem is the problem of the heart.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? Jeremiah 17:9
I can't. God can.
I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5
God meets you where you are.
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
