ReCreatable begins with the story of a glass baking dish, the delectable aroma of tantalizing brownies, and an unseen defect that turns the promise of something delicious into a minor disaster, leaving glass fragments and brownies irretrievably intermingled. Both the dish and brownies are irrevocably lost. The implications for us are inescapable: created by God to reflect his glory and for his pleasure, we have been broken by sin to the point that we are completely useless to accomplish the purpose for which we were made. But, unlike the shattered brownie dish that gets discarded as worthless, God takes the shards of our lives and does the miraculous. He does not simply fit us back together. He takes those splinters of our destruction and uses them to re-create us: complete, restored, redeemed, and fitted to do and be all that he ever intended for us. ReCreatable leads us progressively through the impact of the creative genius of God in our lives. It points us to the reality of restored relationships, the resurrection of our role as true reflectors of God's glory, and the revolutionary life that can be ours when we learn to be true disciples re-created to live well for God.

bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5God re-creating the broken placesFebruary 20, 2014bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5God wants us to experience life in its fullness, Kevin writes. But we are broken - some more than others. God is in the business of putting broken lives and relationships back together. Then He begins to work through us to bring healing to others.
ReCreatable is about being a disciple, becoming a person who
reflects God's glory
by living well
in a pocket of the kingdom.
Kevin unpacks that definition in this book. He writes about how God takes the broken places in our lives and restores glory to them. Christ develops in us a sustainable pattern of faith, hope and love. He explains what it means to grow in those areas and provides a strategy to do so, giving the components of each. The emphasis is on sustainable discipleship, focusing on process rather than accomplishment.
He explains how the Bible speaks to us and shapes us as we come around Scripture. We were made to worship and he covers how we do that and how it shapes us. He explores community, its functions, attitudes and ways we welcome others through Christian mission.
Kevin has added personal reflection questions and suggestions for next steps at the end of each chapter. There is also a small group discussion guide at the end of the book so it could be used individually or in a discipleship group.
We are to become mature human beings. Kevin has written this book for those who want to grow in their walk with Christ. We've been saved and justified. Now it is time to work on our brokenness. "The gospel is about redemption: God re-creating everything that was broken by sin and giving us the opportunity to enjoy eternal life in his kingdom." (201)
This is an excellent book for new believers and for Christians who have not put much effort in their Christian walk.
I received a complimentary galley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
