Wrecked: When a Broken World Slams into your Comfortable Life
If you feel like something is missing in your life then Wrecked was written for you. Jeff Goins speaks passionately of how God “wrecked” his life and the lives of others by giving them an unquenchable compassion for the lost and hurting of this world and then he tells you what to do about it. In his own words,”This is a book about brave choices, about ordinary people helping beggars and moving to foreign countries, about listening to that still, small voice whispering, “Life is not about you.’”

Wrecked is a call to mercy, passion, and unreserved dedication to the command of Christ to minister to the homeless, broken, pained, and lonely. It had me in tears by the end of chapter one. It resonates deeply with the pull in your heart to make a difference, to forget about yourself and to impact the world around you. It is a call to love as Jesus loved and serve as He served.

“If we are to follow the Jesus who suffered with us and bled for us, we too must suffer. We must hold the dying in our arms. We must shed tears for hungry stomachs, trafficked children, and wandering souls. This is what He wants for us. It’s the reason we are called to lay down our nets and take up our crosses to pursue the Suffering Servant.”

-Jeff Goins, Wrecked

If you like being comfortable, don’t read this book.

If you’re afraid of sacrifice, don’t read this book.

If you have no desire to make a difference for Christ in this world and you want to stay that way, don’t read this book.

If you want to keep your heart sheltered from the hurt of others and the overwhelming compassion that makes it hard to sleep at night, don’t read this book.

This book gets in your mind and heart and stays there. It challenges the reader to get off the couch and be more for Christ in such a way that you can’t wait to get started. You absolutely cannot read this book without it changing you.
