My review on Goodreads:
Even in Our Darkness: A Story of Beauty in a Broken Life by Jack Deere
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
There are many reasons why Jack Deere is my favorite author and teacher. Jack lives life as it really is and receives deep satisfaction in pursuing friendship with Jesus in spite of the deeply disappointing realities of his life on this planet. He encourages me in this pursuit. There really is joy to be found in this life but it’s not always pretty. It’s excruciatingly hard and ugly at times. This book is a look behind the scenes of a man I deeply admire and even more so after reading his book. He is truly unique. Jack is not afraid to face difficult issues in theology or life and he does so with honesty and transparency. He is brutally honest in this book. It will challenge you. It will disturb you. But like I mentioned before, it will also encourage you to pursue friendship with Jesus and live with more courage. Some passages are written so skillfully you’ll want to read them again. Some passages are so raw that you’ll have to stop to absorb what you’ve read. And you may weep as I did. But I encourage you to read this honest and gripping account of a remarkable man who has truly found beauty in a broken life.
