Publisher's Summary

Nearly everyone has someone in their circle of acquaintances who struggles - an out-of-control friend or relative whose habits or relationships are in chaos. Is there any hope, or is he or she doomed to self-destruction?

Pastors Rob Cowles and Matt Roberts say God is equal to the challenge! New beginnings are possible, no matter how broken, devastated, or crazy someone’s life may be. Yet, today’s churches don’t do messy very well.

The Genesis Project is a network of believers whose goal is to plant churches in dark places, targeting people who don’t normally “do” church. Reaching drug addicts, convicts, strippers, and gang members, they’ve seen God do some amazing things with seemingly hopeless lives. The God of New Beginnings tells these dramatic stories, offering practical wisdom for breaking through the darkness in a person’s life:

  • Pursuing real relationships    
  • Opening up true stories    
  • Pulling together safe communities    
  • Getting honest about sin    
  • Extending God’s forgiveness and freedom    
  • Helping people reset their lives and habits    
  • Coping with ongoing complications    
  • Not giving up when setbacks occur    
  • Freely sharing the victories    
  • Keeping the faith life simple 

Love never fails. And when we incorporate God’s love into our lives and relationships, redemption is possible.

Truth

This is the honest truth. These are not just stories but honest lives changed in Gods love by amazing people. They don't just talk the talk, they have shown us how to truly love as God would love us, as is humanly possible. I listen over and over to this book, I carry one in my purse to read at every chance and an extra in my car to share with whomever might need it. I am forever grateful to a "God of new Beginnings"!

compelling discussion on ministry

the book challenges "cul-de-sac" Christianity by doing more than writing checks or just relating to people with common social economic. focusing on relationship and the gospel. must read!
