Description

This provocative, inspirational, and heartbreaking collection of true-life tales from megachurch counseling centers, drug rehabs, and graveyard shifts on the crisis-response team explores the toughest and darkest times of people’s lives. J. M. Blaine—a semiagnostic, evangelical absurdist, existential Christian, and licensed psychiatrist—writes with deep concern for the depressed, the discouraged, and the disillusioned in this gritty, ragged memoir of his time spent guiding those through messy lives. The personal insights, parables, and often unbelievable stories offer a street-level vision of charity, as Blaine discovers that there are no easy answers for those struggling to find meaning, attain peace, and live in grace.
