Editorial Reviews


"Biblically saturated and faithful, Glorious Ruin is a gift to the hurting, confused, and curious and will prepare many to marvel at the goodness and grace of God in all circumstances."
Matt Chandler, lead pastor of The Village Church and president of Acts 29 Church Planting Network

"Like you, I'm a sufferer. For the last three years I have watched my eight-year-old daughter suffer with cancer. The why and how of suffering have been of little value to my family and me. The truth of the Who and grace, so wonderfully presented in this book, has been our life and only hope."
Britt Merrick, founder of the Reality family of churches, pastor for preaching and vision at Reality Santa Barbara, author of Godspeed and Big God

"Glorious Ruin is a gospel-driven tour de force. Tullian shows how no matter what you're going through, God stands with you in your suffering and is everything you'll ever need. I couldn't recommend this book more highly!"
Mark Batterson, lead pastor of National Community Church, Washington, DC, and New York Times best-selling author of The Circle Maker

From the Back Cover

In this life, one thing is certain: we will all experience pain and suffering, and most of us experience some form of it daily. Best-selling author Tullian Tchividjian shares in "Glorious Ruin," which takes a hard look at the book of Job and the nature of suffering, thatit's not about getting over it, getting out of it, or getting better afterwards. Suffering is truly about God's presence in our lives in the midst of the pain. We may not ever fully understand why God allows suffering to devastate our lives. We may not ever find the answers as to why, or discover how we'll dig ourselves out of the pit. But we don't need answers as much as we need Him. For the life of the believer, one thing is beautifully and abundantly true: God's chief concern in your suffering is to be with you and be Himself "for" you. In other words, our ruin may not ultimately spell our undoing. It may even spell our beginning. It certainly did for Him.
