Abstract:

Many men and women are apparently dropping off the edges of our horizons because of deep personal tragedy or even dramatic failure. They sink into a quiet personal despair, a "robotic lifestyle" where each day becomes aimless and survival-oriented. Sometimes silently, sometimes loudly, they cry for help, and they're not heard in or out of the church. So, bewildered and confused, they wander off to the side, and we ignore them - deliberately. We don't notice they're not around any longer until it is too late. The sadness is compounded because the Bible, along with God's people living out biblical principles, offers a remarkable promise of rebuilding and renewal from which no one is ever exempt. Rebuilding Your Broken World offers the strength and compassion of biblical hope to those who struggle with shattered ideals.
