A Review: "Wounded by God's People" by Anne Graham Lotz

This latest book by Anne Graham Lotz tackles a heavy subject:  woundedness. Not just any woundedness, but wounds inflicted by those who are part of God's family. Taking the biblical story of Hagar as her base, she takes readers on Hagar's journey and explores just how relevant Hagar's story is to our modern story. She also draws on her own personal journey through pain inflicted by other Christians to help the reader engage even more.

Whether the wounds come from Christians or not, our world is full of "the walking wounded". Pain abounds in our sinful, fallen world. Lotz takes a deep look at how wounds affect people and relationships. She also explores the key role of forgiveness in finding healing from wounds that others have inflicted.

This book is a wonderful tool, especially in this day and age. With so much hurt, both intentional and unintentional, every Christian needs to read this book to help overcome the brokenness and woundedness that occurs so regularly. I highly recommend this book, both for the individual and small groups to read and discuss together.

(I’ve received this complimentary book through the BookLook program in exchange for a review. A positive review was not required and the views expressed in my review are strictly my own.)
