Burning Down the Fireproof Hotel: An Invitation to the Beautiful Lifeby Cary Campbell Umhau
Somewhere on the road to the American Dream, her happy Christian life had become a fireproof fortress - one that kept the world's pain at bay but left her all too safe from God's burning
Cary Umhau had everything she'd ever wanted -- beautiful children, a healthy bank account, even, she'd been told, a ticket to heaven. Yet something felt desperately wrong.
Somewhere on the road to the American Dream, her happy Christian life had become a fireproof fortress - one that kept the world's pain at bay but left her all too safe from God's burning love.
And she learned that he would do anything to break her out. Including - it seemed - breaking her.
Burning Down the Fireproof Hotel is part memoir, part manifesto for the spacious life that's waiting for all of us beyond our private prisons.
