Surrendering to Hope

Guidance for the Broken

In Surrendering to Hope, you'll find fifteen stories of heartbreak and tragedy told with unflinching honesty--brutal deaths of loved ones, chronic illness, mental and sexual abuse, divorce, as well as struggles with same sex attraction, dealing with the trauma of combat loss, and living under racial oppression. But the real story of Surrendering to Hope is that every story is God's story. Despite brokenness and suffering, God is lovingly, powerfully present in every life. He invites each of us to lean on him in trust and begin a journey towards peace.
