Sometimes ministries are shipwrecked by moral failure. But for most of us, the failure is more ordinary: disillusionment, inadequacy, declining budgets, poor decisions, opposition, depression, and burnout. J.R. Briggs knows what failure feels like, and with candid vulnerability, he explores the landscape of failure, how it devastates us and how it transforms us. Without offering quick fixes, he challenges cultural expectations of success and gives permission to grieve our losses...and permission to receive the grace of healing and restoration when we Fail (IVP, ISBN# 978-0830841110).
