Read an Excerpt


I believe one of the reasons many believers are afraid of the idea of brokenness is that they have misconceptions about what brokenness really means. As is true in so many other areas, our idea of brokenness and God's idea of brokenness are usually quite different. For example, some people think of brokenness as always being sad or gloomy. Others think of brokenness as being morbidly introspective: "Oh, woe is me! I've confessed every sin I can possibly think of; but surely there must be something I've missed. Oh, what a worm I am!" False humility and morbid introspection are, in fact, the opposite of brokenness, as they reveal a preoccupation with self, rather than Christ. So what is true brokenness? Someone has said that brokenness, like a fragrance, is easier to detect than to define.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

"I am convinced that there is no way to have an intimate, dynamic, and fruitful relationship with God, apart from the truths Nancy presents in this book.  I saw this firsthand when, in the summer of 1995, He used her message on brokenness to impact the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ in a way I could never have imagined."
-Bill Bright, Campus Crusade for Christ

"Nancy has my enthusiastic applause and heartfelt blessing as she seeks to fan into flame the fire of revival through her teaching on brokenness."
-Anne Graham Lotz, AnGel Ministries
