Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Praise for "The Body Broken <BR>"The pathos of God for the torn and tearing body of Christ has seized the heart of Robert Benson. This book is a pure, passionate and prophetic cry to transcend all division and discord into reverence one another in obedience to the Master. One more thing: Benson is a helluva writer!"<BR>-Brennan Manning, author of "A Glimpse of Jesus <BR>"In a time when bookstores are full of books and films about the end of the road (everyone seems to want to know), "The Body Broken takes us on a journey for the sake of the journey itself, and in the process, it teaches us about loving one another, not by imperative, but by example." <BR>--from the foreword by John Fischer, author of "Love Him in the Morning: Reflections on God's Faithfulness <BR>Jesus prayed for our unity as believers in the hours before His betrayal and crucifixion. Robert Benson tenderly pleads for all of us who follow Him to heed our Lord's petition and concentrate on what unites us instead of what divides us. In a thoughtful and beautifully written volume Benson challenges each of us to reexamine what it means to be a follower of Jesus in the diverse body of Christ. His honesty and heart for the church shine throughout this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it.<BR>-Dave Burchett, Author of "Bring'em Back Alive: A Healing Plan for those Wounded by the Church and "When Bad Christians Happen to Good People <BR>"Again and again, Robert Benson speaks to my heart. His search for authenticity and the power of his words to articulate the way stations on that pilgrim pathway resonate for me in a unique way. "The Body Broken lifts us into a new dimension of spiritual reality." <BR>-- Luci Shaw, Writer-in-Residence, Regent College and author of "Water Lines <BR>"As always, Benson's deceptively simple storytelling sneaks up on you. His style, a fusion of gentleness, raw truth, and quiet power (remind you of anyone?), is put to good use here." The Body Broken is a keeper." — Nikki Gri
