When the reality of your pain doesn't line up with what you've been taught in church, then what? While many abandon their faith or embrace hopelessness, it is possible to discover the God who heals your heart in the midst of the pain.
Matt Bays has been where you are. His unforgettable stories of loss and healing will usher you into a life where gratitude overpowers anger, hope overcomes despair, and hunger for God replaces indifference to God. With a fresh and original writing style, Bays demonstrates that true redemption is far more powerful than the temporary fixes of sanitized Christianity.

Thank you so much Matt Bays. I found this book just when I was struggling in my journey of conception after 3 years of marriage. Now I know that God is with me all through and all I have to do is trust in him and believe that he is with me. Thank you so much. Olayinka Layi-Adeite, Lagos- Nigeria.
"Finding God in the Ruins"
This book has really brought me through some very dark times including suicidal thoughts It has brought me to my knees in tears so that I could surrender myself 100% to God allowing him to make me into the person He wants me to be.
This book was referred by a friend. I think the author offered a good perspective on the old problem if evil.
"Outstanding!!! Spiritually Life Changing!"
Matt Bays is raw, honest and real. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Whether you struggle with cancer and/or emotional pain, abuse, he shows you a different way to view God through it. His writing is visually stimulating and it truly changed my healing process.
We all make a pilgrimage, I am glad God directed yours. At times I wanted to shake you and scream " God IS love". Several times I thought I would quit reading because it felt like the blame game. I don't want my God not to be glorified. I read on, glad I did because as I knew God would be stronger than your weakness. It is my prayer that he continues to grow you in his love and grace. I will reread this again, it's heavy. Bless you and thank you for a look through your glasses.
"Freedom to tell God your truth"
So refreshing and real . Must read!!! The experiences and stories were so impactful. I will highly recommend.
"great book in understanding pain and suffering."
this is a great book for anyone seeking to understand where God is in our pain and suffering
"An honest look at brokenness and God's love for us."
I'm grateful to Matt Bays for sharing his story; his anger, his loneliness, his hope and his journey through redemption in this book.
Also, thank you sharing the truth: God is bigger than our circumstances and doubt. He's a good, good Father. And I am loved by Him.
I recommend this book to anyone who has experienced great loss and wrestles with the question, "Why, God, why?" You are not alone.
