Publisher's Summary

If you've ever been there, you've never forgotten. The feeling is as haunting and familiar as the smell of a junior-high-school locker room. It's the feeling of being undersized or oversized...or klutzy or less than beautiful. Of being a nerd...or a geek or just, somehow, different. It's knowing you are vulnerable - and someone is ready and willing to take full advantage of your weakness by making your life miserable. It's the fraternity you never wanted to join - the fellowship of the wounded spirit.

In Frank Peretti's first nonfiction work, he examines the pain from his past and helps us uncover the scars in our own lives. Drawing from tragic news stories like Columbine, he illustrates how ridicule and rejection can push people beyond the brink. Then, with poignant insight, he shows us the way to heal the wounded spirit that lies within us all.

    "Excellent Lessons for us all"

    This isn't a book per se. It is a tape of a speech he gave at a conference. He talks first about his life growing up. His life parallels what is going on today. The subject is so applicable to today's situation, especially in schools, where kids torment other kids. But the bigger lesson is that for all of us, words can hurt! I would recommend this to anyone, and if you can get your kids to listen, even better.

    "Heart Wrenching"

    An excellent presentation for those who are the abuser and those who have been abused. I am going to present it to our adults and young kids who work with abused kids. One thing I would like to say, the bullies are not just the young people they are also adults.

    Story
    "A gripping, personal story that will change you"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Wounded Spirit to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, but hearing the author tell this intensely person story in his own voice makes it even more impactful.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wounded Spirit?

    When Frank Peretti pleads with his live audience to pledge that THEY will stop bullying others.


    What does Frank Peretti bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I would have missed the passion and the hurt in his voice of growing up with a birth injury that made his face and tongue the object of ridicule by his classmates. It wouldn't have had the same impact if I just read the words on the page.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Look at me -- Look at yourself -- Now look differently at others.

    the Truth, Im not alone, and a broken/wounded spirit can only be repaired by ONE.

    emotion, hearing his voice
