Glorious Ruin

Tullian Tchividjian is pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, a visiting professor at Reformed Theological Seminary, and the author of Glorious Ruin: How Suffering Sets You Free.

the book is excellent. it’s insightful and grounded firmly in the Bible.

our natural instincts tell us to avoid suffering. the world tells us to avoid suffering. a lot of popular and shallow Christianity tells us to avoid suffering.

suffering cannot truly be avoided, though. it happens. it’s a part of life.

“This book,” writes Tchividjian, “started out as a series of sermons I preached through the book of Job following a very painful season of life… But this book is not the sermons…” (pg. 13).

Tchividjian is a storyteller; a wonderful theologian; and a great writer.

Glorious Ruin is great for personal reflection and could spark some interesting conversation in small group settings and/or reading groups.

“David C Cook has provided me with a copy of Glorious Ruin for review on my blog.”
