Description

Where is God when the story of your life falls apart?

'On the morning of December 31, 2000, I watched a white, cardboard coffin travel up a conveyor belt into the belly of a Boeing 757, along with the other baggage. The body in that coffin had belonged to my son. But he had loaned it out once too often.'

So begins the memoir of Jack Deere, born in a rural Texas town east of Forth Worth who rises from poverty and obscurity to become a professor, pastor, and bestselling author only to have his future unravel with the tragic loss of his son. A modern-day story of Job, Deere weaves glimpses of God's surprising and unexpected beauty throughout his experiences of suffering and loss. From the suicide of his father and son to the disintegration of his marriage and his wife's battle with alcoholism, Deere writes honestly about his own struggles with sin, selfishness, and pride as he walks through 'tragedies no one should endure.' Through suffering and pain we learn what it means to have friendship with God - as God makes sense of our broken stories, rewriting them into something beautiful.

In Even in Our Darkness, Deere helps readers see the beauty of God through his unconditional love for us as he brings harmony to our broken stories of darkness and destruction.
