I think there is real hope to be found, in the middle of our deepest traumas, in the good news about Jesus Christ. I also think that there is a place for us to find hope and community within the church. Because of these two beliefs, I truly think, distant though it may be, that we may even get to a place of peace within our souls and a place of forgiveness for those who hurt us so much

This is a book that has no easy answers and will offer none. This is a book that tries to get behind the tough questions of why God permits such abuses to occur in this world. Using his own story of childhood abuse, Mez McConnell tells us about a God who is just, sovereign and loving. A good father who knows the pain of rejection and abuse, who hates evil, who can bring hope even in the darkest place.

‘It’s not a pagan rags to Christian riches story. It’s real, raw and radical. I suspect that there will be as many people shocked by the Bible teaching that Mez wrestles with, as there will be those shocked by the abuse he suffered. With chapters like ‘The glorious, wonderful reality of Hell’ and ‘The terrible reality of Heaven’, there is no chance of this book being perceived as comfortable.’ – David Robertson, Christian Today

Relief is found in Jesus

I read many many books and I don’t recall ever leaving a book review before. As a childhood abuse sufferer, this book was difficult to read and I had to stop several times to let myself cry. Physically abused by my father throughout my childhood and sexually abused by a member of my church for years, I could relate in such a real way to Mez’s story. The most difficult part for me was the realization that I too begrudged God allowing my abusers the opportunity to receive forgiveness. Mez has written out so clearly the words that have been hidden in my heart for many years. Forgive me, Lord. What a beautiful comfort that the story doesn’t end there. I have already gifted this book to two people and I know of more that I will be sending it to. I can’t recommend it enough. Thank you Mez Mconnell for sharing your story. To God be all the glory!
