This Lent, Look at Your Mess Through the Eyes of Christ

Often we make a mess of our lives and wonder if there is any redemption. In this book, pastor and author Tom Berlin helps us see our mess through the eyes of Christ to find redemption and restoration. Using Scripture, devotional tools, and the writings of Ignatius of Loyola, John of the Cross, St. Augustine, John Wesley, Evelyn Underhill, and others, Berlin encourages reflection and meditation through our own brokenness. Only then can we focus on the cross as the place where we truly surrender control, leave our mess, and find redemption.

Chapters include:

This Is a Real Mess
Who Left This Mess?

Bless This Mess
No Messing Around
Address This Mess
The Message in the Mess
