Matt Bays in his new book, “Finding God in the Ruins book coverFinding God in the Ruins” published by David C Cook gives us How God Redeems Pain.

From the back cover:  If God is LOVE, why do we hurt so much?

When the reality of your pain doesn’t line up with what you’ve been taught in church, then what? While many abandon their faith or embrace hopelessness, it is possible to discover the God who heals your heart in the midst of the pain.

Matt Bays has been where you are. His unforgettable stories of loss and healing will usher you into a life where gratitude overpowers anger, hope overcomes despair, and hunger for God replaces indifference to God. With a fresh and original writing style, Bays demonstrates that true redemption is far more powerful than the temporary fixes of sanitized Christianity.

Have you ever hurt? Some of us have deep emotional trauma, some of us have deep physical pain and, then, some of us have both emotional and physical pain. And for some of us it never goes away. What if you lose a child? How about losing a spouse? What if the doctor says it is cancer and cannot cure it or perhaps you lose a leg? This kind of pain can be crippling so how do you handle it? Matt Bays has looked for answers and this book is his response. He does it in four parts. Part One:  The Backstory, Part Two:  Compathy, Part Three:  Storytold, Part Four:  Redemption 2.0. It seems our first reaction when this kind of pain occurs is to blame God. If we take the contents of this book to heart, thanks to Matt Bays, our new first reaction will be to run to God. When we are in disaster and at the bottom and all we see are ruins we will have new eyes to find and see God. And then we will rejoice with Him and let Him heal us. I recommend this book highly.
