Shattered: God's View through Life's Broken Windows (Rachel & Tim Wright)
Paper Back BookCWRA9781782598961
When our son was born with severe and complex brain injury our hearts and dreams lay broken. We were shattered.
For many others like us, life events arrive accompanied by a deep sense of loss, grief or heartache. Maybe it’s a relationship breakdown, death of a loved one or the collapse of a dream.
Our journey as the parents of a child with a life-limiting condition has shown us that quick fixes remain in the DIY shop. Transformation however, from within our circumstances, is not only possible but the very nature and heart of God.
Through this 40-window devotional we will share how brokenness became our invitation into wholehearted living. How we discovered that brokenness doesn’t necessarily need fixing but rather growth, transformation and abundance happens in the broken edges of life.
The life of Jesus shows us the heart and character of God. He entered humanity by sitting in the mess with us. He was laid in a manger, walked the dusty streets, died on a cross and rose again with the scars of suffering etched on His hands. Those at the time were shocked and baffled by this humble, broken demonstration of God.
Join us in discovering how God has and will always give us the greatest view through the broken windows of our lives.
Tim: If you’re a bloke (or someone who thinks like me) and you’ve picked up this book, then well done. I probably wouldn’t. For some reason, while being aware a book like this would help me; I’d rather sit on a fork than admit it.
I’d like to complain that men are not well served in the ‘Christian devotional’ genre, but it’s more likely that I am simply very bad at serving myself. So, go on, take a little serving of ‘Shattered’, what’s the worst that could happen?
Rachel and Tim’s corny childhood romance blossomed into full-blown Christian cliché when they married and started work in Africa as a doctor (Tim) and nurse (Rachel). Now living in Essex with three children, their eldest son’s life-limiting disabilities have injected dramatic twists and turns to the rollercoaster of family life.
