Publisher's Summary

Includes a bonus track featuring Lecrae's song "Still"!

The untold story of how Lecrae's past nearly ruined his life - until he learned that the wounds we carry point to the healing and freedom we all desperately need.

When all you've suffered threatens to destroy your life, how do you get back to the truth you thought you believed?

I Am Restored is the shattering yet hope-filled story of how Lecrae faced the buried wounds of his past - sexual abuse, physical trauma, addiction, and depression - and emerged more fully human than ever before. With remarkable transparency and vulnerability, Lecrae reveals how at the height of his professional success, his life was spinning out of control, driven by a past that he had never confronted and a religious perspective incapable of meeting the challenge.

In this powerful, deeply personal account, Lecrae provides an unflinching look at the personal and public spaces that are too often places of pain and heartache - culture, politics, family, church - and reminds us that letting go and forgiving is the birthplace for the life of creativity and freedom God has for us. In addition, he shares the transformational yet simple practices he uses daily for mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

I Am Restored is a hopeful, inspiring charge to embrace the lasting healing and restoration available now, because no matter what you've experienced, God is near, he hears, and he's not done with you yet.

Tears!

As a writer, father, son, in ministry for Jesus, this book speaks to a place untouched by any but God, through the person presence and power of The Holy Spirit. My Pastor strongly urged me the give myself the time needed to read this book, Saying that it is a miracle to have even come by it, indicating that this man is telling your story. I am in awe, and humbled by the power of Jesus. Visceral transparency, honesty and just good diction. Hope to meet this Brother one day.

Redemption Through Personal Reformation

I have been following the work of Lecrae for a decade now. Seeing (hearing) his story and reading his books have really given me insight into who God has called him to be (and introspection into my own story). This book is what true transparency looks like. I have so much more respect for Lecrae as he has taken this step in vulnerability and chosen to walk in restoration. Thank you for continuing to be a light to help guide the way to a closer walk with Christ. "Who I follow, is who they follow, when they follow me." - Lecrae

The Last Dance

This book was awesome! It is refreshing and eye opening to the Journey Of Lecrae.it reminds me of “The last dance” tv show which he coincidentally happened to also mention in the book. But it is really informative to the struggle you’ve seen or assumed on the outside and brought light to the things you’ve seen from him. It also helps you understand where the songs come from without calling out the songs. I really appreciate the story. I connected on many different levels. Different lives but still connects on a familiar level. I think it’s a must read, better yet a great listen because he is actually the reader and it comes across a lot better than reading in my opinion. God bless you Lecrae I can totally relate.. a masterpiece that is unfinished. On of my favorite quotes from the book “what is the point of my theology if it is not shown in my ethics and what is the point of my knowledge if it does not show in my actions!” Not word for word but that’s what he said. Great work!! Selah-

Christianity in its purest form

Many times people think to be a Christian means to be free from sinful desires, or lust, or anything that's bad or even to be at peace and that is just not the case. Lecrae bears his soul, even at the risk of scrutiny, to talk about a familiar situation many young, Black, educated Christians find themselves lost in. His journey is a story that needs to be told, and I'm glad someone of his statue is able to tell it. I don't know how someone could read/listen to him and not be moved not just off of preconceived notions but moved to action to create equity around the world.

For a Struggling Soul

I have been struggling with my faith and relationship with Jesus and just sadness towards the world and the way everyone is treating each other. I have felt lost in my democratic and "liberal" beliefs, often being ostracized by others. I have been searching for others who have found their way through the pain. It was so uplifting hearing the testimony of "someone who has beaten the disease" thank you for showing the light at the end of the tunnel and the reminder that we can find our brothers and sisters in Christs, but most importantly we can find our peace in Him.

Eye opening

So good! Good to hear someone talk about all of this stuff. Gives you a deep appreciation and better understanding for what people who are "famous " and well known go through. At the same time it makes you look at your own life regarding whether there are places God needs to move in and edit stuff our or in. Loved this book!
