About book Glorious Ruin: How Suffering Sets You Free (2012)

If you are a human being; you will suffer. If you are a Christian; you will still suffer.Tullian Tchividjian allows us to see that it's okay to say that the suffering that we endure is very hard- no sugarcoating Christian speak- it's hard and we don't have to minimize it just because we claim Christ as our Savior.The other point Tchividjian encourages the reader about is that suffering is not always a result of bad morals, bad decisions, sin.And as the great title suggests, God even uses the suffering we endure for our good. Really. While I appreciate Tchividjian's analysis of suffering, and think he has done a great job of expounding the downfalls of a "theology of glory" in suffering, I found him to be very repetitive; what was of import could have been said in just one chapter. Overall, I feel that the strength of this book is in his explanation of the gospel, and how our identity is found in Christ alone, which wasn't really the point of it all. 3/5.
