Publisher's Summary

How can it be? When we're naked and ashamed and alone in our brokenness, Christ envelops us with his intimate grace. When we're rejected and abandoned and shattered beyond wanting, Jesus cups our faces: "Come close, my beloved." When we're dirty and tear-stained and despairing, Jesus Christ proposes undying dying love: "All that you painfully are and are carrying - I'll take. All that I perfectly am and have is yours. Just take me."

There is a wooing that washes our wounds. Falling into this intimacy with him is the one thing we pray to never recover from. This kind of intimacy can only be tasted and swallowed, and it burns a holy yes through our begging veins.

Am I willing to take all that I have, break, and give to him?

Because all that he is he broke and gave to us.

    "Book is probably excellent but narration is awful"

    The book is probably amazing, I love Ann Voskamp but the narrator is painful to listen to. She has loud, sharp intakes of breath every 3 words. It is completely louder than her reading & doesn't give any more feeling to the narration but just distracts. I couldn't even get through the first chapter. Get the book on Kindle.

    "So disappointed"

    If you've ever heard Ann read her own writings or even speak, you won't be able to listen to this audible version. The narrator rips it to shreds. I couldn't even make it through the first chapter and I cringed the entire way.
    Ann writes like liquid, silk poetry.
    I'm sure the narrator did her best but Ann's work should only be read by her.

    "Over the top dramatically read"

    It was so over the top dramatically read that I was not able to listen to it. A shame because I suspect the content might have been quite good.

    "Read the hard copy book only"

    The content of this book is wonderful so I plan to buy the tangible version. The audiobook suffers. I cannot get past the preachy voice to the content. I have tried to suffer through it because I love listening to books while I work. But the constant preachy tone and lack of sentence cadence is like listening to scratching on a chalkboard. The author is awesome, but please redo the audiobook.

    "Life Changing"

    Ann Voskamp took me deep into the beliefs I held about brokenness. She has challenged the very core of the idea that we need to "heal" from our brokenness and instead challenges us to LIVE from our brokenness. In doing so, she also challenges the way we approach the brokenness we encounter in this world and in others. Jamie Paul's narration of this book added even more meaning to the words and the heart of Ann. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to discover more meaning and depth in this life we live.

    "Excellent, Humbling and Real"

    Few books keep my mind attentive and soaring to meet the reality of my Beloved Savior as Ann Voskamp book, The Broken Way, has. My heart rejoices at the heartbeat of communion and blessed ability God has entrusted Ann with words.

    I highly recommend this book if you desire to take your Christianity from being nominal to phenomenal by the power of our gracious God. To GOD be ALL the GLORY

    "Thought Provoking"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this is a thought provoking book. I loved the narrator in this book.


    What about Jamiee Paul’s performance did you like?

    Her voice lent itself to the story of learning to live in The Broken Way.

    "What???"

    This was my first Ann Voskamp book. I was so excited. I understood the words to be English but I still have absolutely no idea what she was trying to say. It sounded lovely, but it felt like I was missing the whole point.

    I know many love her, but this was my first and last book by her.
