The Weekly Hit List: May 30, 2014

A Beautiful Disaster by Marlena Graves (June 2014) was reviewed in the June 14, 2014, issue of CBA Retailers + Resources.

A Beautiful Disaster examines the many and varied “disasters” that Graves endured from childhood to adulthood. She transparently shares numerous life-altering events that compelled her to seek Jesus more intimately.

“Because life is fraught with difficulty and pain, Christians must make peace with that truth and build their faith upon the foundation of God’s love and His Word. Graves tenderly opens the deepest of her own heart’s wounds while demonstrating that God is always present in our pain, always attending to us in our troubles, and always at the ready to provide us the strength and grace to endure.”

The text of the full review is available to subscribers of CBA Retailers + Resources.
