Jim Daly | David C. Cook

Jim Daly, who serves as president and CEO of Focus on the Family, writes about one of the paradoxes of the Christian—the blessing of brokenness—in Stronger: Trading Brokenness for Unbreakable Strength.

No stranger to suffering, as a boy he was abandoned by his alcoholic father and then lost his mother to cancer. He not only shares vignettes from his own life—his marriage and his wife’s struggle with depression—but also relays the stories and struggles of others who’ve crossed his path, offering no easy answers to the “Why, God?” question.

Drawing from David’s Psalms and Paul’s writings, Daly explains that life’s tribulations cause people to become beaten, bitter or broken. The path of brokenness is the preferred road, he says, reminding readers of Paul’s signature philosophy in 2 Cor. 12:10: “For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

Believers will especially appreciate Daly’s teaching on the different facets of hope. Ultimately, he steers readers’ attention to the source of eternal strength, closing with a quote from Psalm 62: “Find rest, O my soul, in God alone.”
