Overview

Why is God silent in my illness?



Living with a chronic illness is tough enough on its own, but it can become an overwhelming burden when we believe widespread myths about chronic illness. Without a strategy to overcome these lies, we can descend into a listless existence, even as people of faith.

In Perfectly Abnormal, Chris Morris tears down the erroneous and misinformed beliefs surrounding chronic illness. From the unique standpoint of being both a parent of a special needs daughter and having a seizure disorder himself, Chris guides readers through difficult terrain as he shreds the eight most common myths the chronic illness community faces. Then he begins the conversation of developing a better theology of illness, with the intent of bringing his readers to a place of intentional excellence in spite of their conditions.
