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. 

Now avialable in paperback, 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.

From the Back Cover:

In this life, one thing is certain: we will all experience pain and suffering, and most of us experience some form of it daily. Best-selling author Tullian Tchividjian shares in "Glorious Ruin," which takes a hard look at the book of Job and the nature of suffering, thatit's not about getting over it, getting out of it, or getting better afterwards. Suffering is truly about God's presence in our lives in the midst of the pain. We may not ever fully understand why God allows suffering to devastate our lives. We may not ever find the answers as to why, or discover how we'll dig ourselves out of the pit. But we don't need answers as much as we need Him. For the life of the believer, one thing is beautifully and abundantly true: God's chief concern in your suffering is to be with you and be Himself "for" you. In other words, our ruin may not ultimately spell our undoing. It may even spell our beginning. It certainly did for Him.

About the Author:

Tullian Tchividjian is bestselling author of Glorious Ruin, One Way Love and numerous other Christian books. He and his wife Stacie reside in Texas.
