Acclaimed worship leader, musicin, and speaker Chris DuPre tells the story of growing up in small-town, upstate New York with his abusive dad, a WWII vet struggling with PTSD before PTSD could be diagnosed. Even amid financial frailty and a broken family, Chris traces the finger of God that, against all odds, led him through emotional and physical abuse in childhood to a miraculous conversion in adolescence, and, years later, to a pivotal decision in a garden between two options: love, or bitterness.
With candor, humor, and grace, Chris writes a narrative of forgiving those before us and loving those around us that every Christian will instantly recognize. Although names may change, the cosmic story remains: we can love because He first loved us-with a wild, cleansing, transformative love.
Includes discussion questions for group study.
