Product Description

Brokenness doesn't only find us in the big things--things like illness, hardship, or grief. It also finds us in the every day stinging moments when we feel forgotten, or under-appreciated by our loved ones, or sense the inevitable change years of living has marked on our hearts. We are fragile and we know it. Sometimes, living with Christ in a messed-up world feels less like victory and more like walking uphill. How do we walk in a way that both glorifies Jesus and bears witness to our weakness?

From the best-selling author of One Thousand Gifts comes an impassioned message: We are desperately loved by Jesus just as we are, and his love compels us to be broken open for others! You'll be deeply encouraged by Voskamp's thoughts on how God takes flawed and imperfect sinners, redeems us, and makes us useful in his kingdom.

Publisher's Description

New York Times best-selling author of One Thousand Gifts Ann Voskamp sits at the edge of her life and all of her own unspoken brokenness and asks: What if you really want to live abundantly before it's too late? What do you do if you really want to know abundant wholeness? This is the one begging question that’s behind every single aspect of our lives --- and one that The Broken Way - also a New York Times bestseller - rises up to explore in the most unexpected ways.  

This one's for the lovers and the sufferers. For those whose hopes and dreams and love grew so large it broke their willing hearts. This one's for the busted ones who are ready to bust free, the ones ready to break molds, break chains, break measuring sticks, and break all this bad brokenness with an unlikely good brokenness.  You could be one of the Beloved who is broken --- and still lets yourself be loved. 

You could be one of them, one who believes freedom can be found not only beyond the fear and pain, but actually  within it.

You could discover and trust this broken way --- the way to not be afraid of broken things.

Endorsements

"Rich. Gritty. Intimately vulnerable. A wise way forward to help navigate our broken world. This book is worth the wait. So many writers of faith do not do the hard work of literary incarnation: expressing spiritual truth in the material world of daily life. Ann Voskamp does this brilliantly." -Philip Yancey

"I read The Broken Way with tears streaming down my face, my Spirit crying out YES, YES, YES, YES! Few authors have impacted my own life like Ann Voskamp. If we can live out the truth contained within The Broken Way, I believe we will reach & impact our generation like never before. So powerful. So prophetic. So profound. Please read this book."
-Christine Caine

“Just had a marvelous, rich phone conversation with Ann. Wow; just wow. Sometimes in my professional life I am fortunate enough to cross paths with someone who has a good word not just for some vague "audience" out there, but also for me personally. This was one of those moments. What a gift to be able to visit with Ann by phone, and how generous of her to give me a little extra time to cover each question thoroughly.
---Publishers Weekly

“The interview was rich and profound, and I can't wait to write an article that highlights this book.”
---Relevant

“Ann and I had a rich time together this morning. The interview was a blessing! Blessings on you and your team as you prepare for the launch of The Broken Way this fall!”
---Life: Beautiful Magazine

    A few years ago, in 2011 to be exact, this writer named Ann Voskamp showed up in all our lives and taught us how she learned to live fully by counting One Thousand Gifts. Maybe you took the dare that year, or one of the years that followed. Counting out One Thousand Gifts of your own and recognizing God in the tiniest of moments. My counting came in the year after my deep, dark desert, and my one thousandth gift transcribed in the notebook was my husband, who arrived in my life that year.

    In these years since, Ann's been writing away on her blog, teaching us from her well of wisdom in her recognizable, lyrical voice. And as you might have heard, just a few weeks ago, she released a new book: The Broken Way.

    I was eager to see this new book and discover what Ann had been learning in this meantime between books, and I wanted to read slowly so I could fully digest and savor. This wasn't a book to fly through, and I knew that going in. Ann's style is careful and thoughtful, and to read too quickly is to miss out. So I've been snacking on a chapter at a time, underlining, considering, contemplating, and learning.

    The first words I underlined were from page 15: "Maybe this broken way is making something new. He is making all things new." And oh, how I learned that firsthand in my desert. That brokenness doesn't lead to the end, but it leads to something new. And if He could make all things new for me, I know He can do it for you. {And probably He will do it for me again after a desert I haven't yet walked.}

    Here's the thing.

    Most of us avoid brokenness. We don't want to look broken and needy in front of others. We don't want to look broken and needy to God. We don't even want to see broken and needy in the mirror. So we avoid our brokenness.

    I did.

    Before my desert, I avoided it. I wanted to be the strong one. The rock. The invincible one. But after the desert, I learned to own broken. I was incapable of hiding how broken I was, so instead of avoiding it, I embraced it. And the craziest thing happened: I learned that other people identified with my brokenness far more than they identified with my pretend wholeness. If I was brave enough to admit my broken places, they felt safe enough to join me there, and healing began. Broken people, gathered together to hurt over similar wounds began to heal together through seeking God's Face and receiving God's grace.

    But it only happens when you are willing to let people see how and where you're broken.

    And that's what Ann does in this book. She opens the doors to her heart and lets you see the things that have broken her. The pain of cutting. The disappointment of family dysfunction. The unrelenting sting of death. Watching her kids wrestle with hard things. Facing fears. Much more.

    She says the things most people want to, but are either afraid to or don't know how to say. She gives permission to hurt. Permission to grieve. Permission to be broken.

    A few other thoughts I underlined:

    "Who knows why God allows heartbreak, but the answer must be important enough because God allows His heart to break too." - p. 55

    "Don't waste a minute on anything less than what lasts for all eternity." - p. 95

    "Love pries open your chest and pulls open the door of your heart so someone can walk right in and make this mess that remakes you into something more beautiful." - p. 131

    "Be brave and do not pray for the hard thing to go away, but pray for a bravery that's bigger than the hard thing." - p. 167

    "Don't we all have to unlearn fear before we can truly learn to love?" - p. 214

    I had two main lines of thought as I read this book. The first was how I wished it had been written back when I was walking my own broken way. Seeing these words might have given me the courage to be braver sooner. At the very least, they would have given me comfort that I was not alone in my brokenness.

    The second thought was that even though I'm not walking the most broken way right now, these words still break me. There are still things about my heart that are too calloused and need to be more tender.

    So...if you are in a place of deep brokenness right now, and you need to know that it's okay to break, and you need to know that someone has walked a broken road and lived to tell about it, this book is for you. If you know someone who is broken in two right now, and you want to understand them, but their own words fail them, read this to get a glimpse of how they might be feeling.

    And because we never live free from a future of brokenness, if you want to know how to break better next time, read this book.

    I want to pause to say that I think there's a need to be careful with books like this...books that sail to the top of charts and are gobbled up by readers simply because the authors are best-sellers and are put on pedestals of faith. I've pulled back from reading some authors I previously read without question, because I've felt a conviction to be more careful about just automatically accepting teaching. I read this book with a guard up, hoping I wouldn't find anything untrustworthy from Ann, whose writing has taught me so much. I asked for discernment as I read, too, praying for the Lord to show me if there were patterns of thought taught within that I shouldn't adopt.

    Personally, I did not find that to be the case with this book. I came away convicted about a handful of things that I need to work on, comforted in knowing I did some things well in my own previous brokenness, and I learned things about the Lord I'd never before considered. That was my experience with this book. But I urge you with this and all books you read, to read with discernment and not just accept ideas as truth because the person who wrote them has been given a platform. The Bible alone is the measuring stick for every word authors write.

    I also want to pause and say that if you've never read Ann Voskamp before, her writing style is very distinctive. She crafts words in such a lovely and poetic way, but the style doesn't let you speed through the pages and grasp every word to its fullest. So, read slowly. Don't let the poetic nature push you away.

    Another great book by Ann Voskamp. Written in her poetic, thought provoking style. She explores what it means to be broken, real, and vulnerable. I'm not sure I'd call it truly "daring" as Jesus said it years ago but it still holds true today that the more we try to get things, the more we try to hide our broken, the more we want to appear perfect, and the more we refuse to be real about are pain the less abundant our life will be. It's not what you do for God, how positive you are, how much you "name it and claim it" that leads to abundant living but rather how much you are poured out and willing to let God make all those broken pieces into something beautiful.

    (I received a free copy of the book as part of Ann's "Launch Team").

    "The Broken Way" is so rich, so deep, so enlightening. Ann has an inspirational, poetic way of writing that causes me to read slow and underline often, to soak up all the beautiful truth she speaks. This book has been an eye-opening part of my journey to finding the beauty of being broken. I am truly grateful to Ann for being bold and brave, for getting this book into our hands, for such a time as this!
