Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
In this world, one thing is certain: Everybody hurts. Suffering may take the form of tragedy, heartbreak, or addiction. Or it could be something more mundane (but no less real) like resentment, loneliness, or disappointment. But there's unfortunately no such thing as a painless life. In "Glorious Ruin," best-selling author Tullian Tchividjian takes an honest and refreshing look at the reality of suffering, the ways we tie ourselves in knots trying to deal with it, and the comfort of the gospel for those who can't seem to fix themselves--or others. This is not so much a book about "Why" God allows suffering or even "How" we should approach suffering--it is a book about the tremendously liberating and gloriously counterintuitive truth of a God who suffers "with" you and "for" you. It is a book, in other words, about the kind of hope that takes the shape of a cross.

Book description

In this world, one thing is certain: Everybody hurts. Suffering may take the form of tragedy, heartbreak, or addiction. Or it could be something more mundane (but no less real) like resentment, loneliness, or disappointment. But there's unfortunately no such thing as a painless life. In Glorious Ruin, best-selling author Tullian Tchividjian takes an honest and refreshing look at the reality of suffering, the ways we tie ourselves in knots trying to deal with it, and the comfort of the gospel for those who can't seem to fix themselves--or others.

This is not so much a book about Why God allows suffering or even How we should approach suffering--it is a book about the tremendously liberating and gloriously counterintuitive truth of a God who suffers with you and for you. It is a book, in other words, about the kind of hope that takes the shape of a cross.
