Review: Whole: Restoring What Is Broken in Me, You, and the Entire World

33216020 Whole: Restoring What Is Broken in Me, You, and the Entire World by Steve Wiens
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Look around, and you'll notice: The world is covered with jagged edges. People and places are broken all around us.

We were made for better than this: We were made to be whole, and wholly human, to tend a world that is wholly humane. We were made in the image of God. This book is a quest to recover that image in ourselves and our neighbors, to help us all become human and humane again.

For Christians who lament the brokenness in themselves, their neighbors, and the world around them, Whole offers a rallying cry to pursue wholeness together.

*I received a copy from Tyndale House for review*

Quite possibly the most powerful book I have read to date! Filled with rich imagery, and the author's personal experiences, Whole is a reminder that we all long for something not yet realized. That until we fully know God, until that day we see Him running to meet us like the father of the Prodigal Son, until that day we are slightly less than whole, and filled with a longing for something that is not yet. I love the author's use of vivid descriptions, and everyday events to tell a story that will resonate with people from all nations, and all languages. Such a beautiful, and powerful reminder of God's unfailing love, and promise to restore those who seek Him, as He restored Job.
