Publisher's Summary

"Unmasked, unsettling, and unforgettable... this will change the landscape of your soul." - Ann Voskamp
"Filled with the raw pain, beauty, mystery, and grace that our hearts were meant for." - Matt Chandler
Prepare yourself for an unvarnished look at the Christian life, told now for the first time. A powerful memoir of finding beauty and friendship through the pain of loss, tragedy, and brokenness, Even in Our Darkness explores what it means to know God and be known by him.
Jack Deere tells the true story of his life growing up near Fort Worth, Texas in the 1950s and the disintegration of his family following his father's suicide. In his mid-20s, Jack would rise to fame and success as a leading scholar, popular speaker, and best-selling author.
But despite being rescued and exalted, Jack would ultimately be crushed in the years that followed. He would lose his son to suicide and his wife to alcoholism. Only then would Jack wrestle with his own addictions, surrender control, and experience true healing.
An authentic story of the Christian life, Even in Our Darkness will serve as your own guide in overcoming life's disappointments and learning to hear God speak in unbelievable ways.

Even in Our Darkness is a must read

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

As I mature there are fewer and fewer books that I feel I can safely recommend to a friend without giving them a disclaimer. Even in Our Darkness is NOT one of those books. Jack has done a remarkable job in opening up and sharing what an authentic Christian life looks like - without all the socially acceptable facades that are so common in most Christian books these days.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jack showed that being a friend of Jesus, even in the midst of difficult life situations is not only possible, it is necessary.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved how Jack opened up and shared his struggles and even his failures, and how God walked with him through it all.

Any additional comments?

Jack's writings, his integrity, his teaching, and his example literally transformed who I am, how I think, and how I live. His previous three books, Surprised by the Spirit, Surprised by the Voice of God, and The Beginner's Guide to the Gift of Prophecy are on my list of must read books. Even in Our Darkness has been added to this list. In an age where so many Christians have retreated behind the mask of socially acceptable Christianity, it is so refreshing to hear one of the leading ministers in the Body of Christ lay down the mask and tell it like it is, warts and all. Even in the Darkness is honest, real, and gives hope to anyone who has a desire to know Jesus, to love Jesus and to be a friend of Jesus. God bless you, Jack!

A gritty, honest, vulnerable, hope-giving memoir

A gritty, honest, vulnerable, hope-giving memoir. The audiobook is well read and easy to follow.
