Publisher's Summary

Wrecked is about the life we are afraid to live. It's about radical sacrifice and selfless service - how we find purpose in the midst of pain. It's a look at how we discover fulfillment in the least likely of places. It's about living like we mean it. It's a guide to growing up and giving your life away, helping you live in the tension between the next adventure and the daily mundane. This book is for us - a generation intent on pursuing our life's work in a way that leaves us without regrets.

Author Jeff Goins shares his own experience of struggling as a missionary and 20-something who understands the call to live radically while dealing with the everyday responsibilities of life. Wrecked is a manifesto for a generation dissatisfied with the status quo and wanting to make a difference.

The reason we do humanitarian work is to feel better about ourselves. Right?<br/><br/>NO philanthropy is not self-medication.<br/><br/>Compassion means, "suffer with".<br/><br/>"It will hurt a little, maybe even a lot."<br/><br/>We find purpose in suffering.<br/>

Goins speaks from the heart

Conversational style interspersed with stories that illustrate his points about life-alerting circumstances plus invite you into the moment. He spoke from his experience but also used stories from others which helped me identify with the people & situations of becoming wrecked for ordinary life. He gives clear direction and encourages others through their seasons of life.

Jeff I think you should have got another reader.

I enjoyed the story overall. Jeff has a good command of English and I respect his Writing. Hopefully the youth take heed of your wise words. For me personally I have been wrecked a whole lot in my Lifetime. Nothing new here for me author needs another reader.

Totally idealistic approach.

Nothing that can be followed in life, from the book. Author tries to give some vague african examples for happiness. Not relevant in today's world.
