Overview


You can’t. God can.

Life never lacks for improvement—in ourselves, in our relationships, in just about everything. But all our brave stabs at getting better, if they ever change anything, are incomplete at best, complete failures at worst. Sometimes much worse.

Unless . . .

The gospel of Jesus Christ is the great “unless” of life—both for those who already believe (but can’t believe the messes they’re still capable of making), as well as those who don’t yet believe but just know their way isn’t working.

Recovering Redemption, written with a pastor’s bold intensity and a counselor’s discerning insight, takes you deeply into Scripture to take you deeply inside yourself, discovering that the heart of all our problems is truly the problem of our hearts. But because of what God has done, and because of what God can do, the most confident, contented person you know could actually be you—redeemed through Jesus Christ.

None of us, really, can do what’s required to change our lives for the better, taking what’s persistently frustrating and making it perfectly satisfying. Yet as hopeless as that may sound, it is the flat-line truth in which good news comes to life . . . to your life. For just as what’s lost can be found, what’s wrong can—even now—be recovered.

I'm a very avid reader so I usually breeze through books. But let me tell you, Recovering Redemption, stopped me in my tracks. I tried to just plow through it, but the words just wouldn't let me. I found myself reading a chapter and then having to put the book down and just digest what it contained. The description of the book says that it is intended for the unbeliever who knows that their way isn't working and the believer that still finds themselves in messes. I'm of the later category. This book made me recall how I felt when I was first redeemed. I was totally sold out. I trusted Jesus with everything. But slowly that began to slip away. I began to trust myself more and more to set things right. The beauty of this book is that it is a great reminder that apart from Christ we are nothing. Matt Chandler and Michael Snetzer make the perfect team to drive this point home. Matt is blunt in stating what the problem as well as the solution is. Michael adds the perspective of a relational aspect to the situation. In other words Matt is black and white and Michael adds different hues of color that add to the final picture.  If you are like me you are going to come away from this book with a new appreciation of the Gospel message. Recovering Redemption will allow you to again reclaim what you may have thought was lost when in reality it was there all the time. It was just buried under all the other things that you have used to find peace but instead found strife. I urge you to pick a copy up and let it help you peel back the layers that have come between you and the life giving message of Christ. I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
