Overview

If you are being broken, God is working with you," writes Dr. M. R. De Haan. "He is making something--something that will someday astound you with its wisdom and beauty... The things we thought were the greatest trials and tragedies we later find to be God's way of bringing us something better. We think broken things are a loss, but God turns them to gain."

Broken Things is the most popular of Dr. De Haan's many books. This is true, no doubt, because it comforts and encourages those whose lives have been shattered by illness, adversity, and painful losses. Its lessons about suffering are timeless, and the need for a proper perspective on brokenness is as relevant as ever in our world today.

Broken Things brings comfort and encouragement to those who seek reasons for their suffering. Dr. De Haan writes compassionately to those who once dreamed of living "happily ever after" but now face the harsh reality of adversity. He explains how brokenness can prepare a person for maturity in his or her walk with Christ, and why being broken is a sign of God's working to refine the potential He sees in His children.

The message of this book brings hope and peace through the healing principles of God's Word.

"My grandfather, M. R. De Haan, has been at home with the Lord for almost forty-five years. Yet the impact of his ministry continues in the lives of men and women who heard him preach and who have read his writings. As one who suffered profound brokenness, M. R. knew what the good news of God's grace meant in his own life. And because God has used the words of this book to challenge and comfort people throughout the world since it was first published, we are pleased to offer it in this new edition."        --From the Foreword by Mart De Haan
