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.

Beautiful message, powerful honesty, well written

Jack Deere tells with brutal honesty his story. From the relentless pursuit of a meaningful life, to a series of disappointments, confusion and unimaginable hurt , the reader (or listener) will relate to the all too human experience. Thankfully the constant presence and unfailing love of God are waved into this tapestry, even when not noticeable, rescuing and indeed bring beauty out of the brokenness. The book is nicely written and the fact that is narrated by the author is a plus. We all read/ listened in one sitting. I am glad Dr. Deere and his wife had the courage to publish their story, it will be a great encouragement to many, particularly those looking not for platitudes but for true hope, despite the less then pretty reality of the human condition.
