Sometimes it's hard to see grace. And even harder to receive. When you're hurt or angry or confused or doubtful, grace can seem as hard tograsp as the sky.
But actually, it's as real and solid as stones: tangible, weighty, something to hold on to, a way through streams of pain, shame, abuse.
In these pages L.L. Barkat shares her own painful, powerful story with us. Weaving in truth from Scripture, words from other writers and stories of people who've come alongside her in her journey, she shows us the unexpected ways and places she's discovered grace: grace that has helped her open her heart to love, discover a way past fear, find freedom from shame.
Her story will help you find the rock of God's grace in the midst of your own broken, hard places. And his grace will give you a new story to tell.

Grace. That's the centerpiece of Stone Crossings, shared through the hard and hidden places of my life and the bible.
In sun-dappled creekbeds and strawberry fields, in the dark belly of a whale and on parched desert plains, grace makes surprising appearances. Along the way, it calls, "Where have you been, where are you now, where do you want to be?" Then it gives strength to answer, to hope and to heal.
L.L. Barkat is a speaker and writer for WTW Ministry in New York. She is a former magazine designer, art director, editorial consultant and ad copywriter. Barkat also manages Social Issues Reading Clubs for persons who want to be informed about social issues and ways they can benefit the world community. Stone Crossings is her first InterVarsity Press book.
