Recreatable


Description:
ReCreatable begins with the story of a glass baking dish, the delectable aroma of tantalizing brownies, and an unseen defect that turns the promise of something delicious into a minor disaster, leaving glass fragments and brownies irretrievably intermingled. Both the dish and brownies are irrevocably lost.
The implications for us are inescapable: created by God to reflect his glory and for his pleasure, we have been broken by sin to the point that we are completely useless to accomplish the purpose for which we were made. But, unlike the shattered brownie dish that gets discarded as worthless, God takes the shards of our lives and does the miraculous. He does not simply fit us back together. He takes those splinters of our destruction and uses them to re-create us: complete, restored, redeemed, and fitted to do and be all that he ever intended for us.
ReCreatable leads us progressively through the impact of the creative genius of God in our lives. It points us to the reality of restored relationships, the resurrection of our role as true reflectors of God’s glory, and the revolutionary life that can be ours when we learn to be true disciples—re-created to live well for 
 God.

This is a great book for anyone who feels "broken" or lost, has gone through major things in their lives or feel that they can't be used of God.  

The author takes us back to the beginning, (Genesis) to explain brokenness, and how brokenness came about; and how brokenness can ruin our relationships.  He then brings us to the next chapter on Glory, and how God restores us.

This is a great book on discipleship, it would make a great read for pastors, leadership, and anyone interested in discipleship.   It has questions at the end of every chapter, and a study guide in the back, so that one can use it one on one or even in a group.

I  received this book free from the publisher . I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
