If God loves me, why does life hurt so much? "A new way to live is available to us," writes widely respected author and counselor Larry Crabb, "a way that leads to a joy-filled encounter with Christ, to a life-arousing community with others, and to a powerful transformation of our interior worlds that makes us more like Jesus." You'll see how God moves you from shattered dreams to better dreams to the highest dream and the joy that comes from dreaming it. This is a book that will... draw you to your closest Friend, help you discover your deepest spiritual desires, point you to your greatest hope, help you face your deepest pain, and invite you to your highest joy.

- Publisher Learn How to Look Through Life's Tragedies and See the Lavish Blessings God Has For You!
 
“Shattered dreams,” writes Dr. Larry Crabb, “are never random. They are always a piece in a larger puzzle, a chapter in a larger story. The Holy Spirit uses the pain of shattered dreams to help us discover our desire for God, to help us begin dreaming the highest dream.”
 
To help you understand this neglected truth in the deepest and most helpful way, author and counselor Larry Crabb has written a wise, hopeful, honest, and realistic examination of life’s difficulties and tragedies. He wraps insights around the bold story of Naomi in the Bible’s book of Ruth.
 
As Crabb retells and illuminates this sometimes disturbing and often profoundly touching story, we are shown how God stripped Naomi of happiness in order to prepare her for joy. And we gain an unforgettable picture of how God uses shattered dreams to release better dreams and a more fulfilling life for those He loves.
 
Shattered dreams have the power to change our lives for good. Forever.

Reviving
4 stars By seanb, Jan 28 2013
I guess deep down inside we've all wondered 'why' something happened. And deep down we might well have wondered why God might have wanted to hurt us when things didn't go right.

Larry Crabb doesn't shy away from the hard stuff here, and is honest about his own experiences plus his reflections on what the Bible says and then what that might mean today.

He doesn't pander to feelings, but then he is so loving and open and honest in this book that it doesn't feel like a guilt trip at all.

I was revived by reading this  I'd love you to be too.

insightful refection on suffering
5 stars By Gail :), Jul 26 2012
The best book I have read on the topic of why our dreams do shatter and God plan and redemptive purpose in that. Larry crabb's style is incredibly authentic, open and honest. You instantly lose your defences and want to hear what he has to say. It is incredibly challenging reading yet at the same time you feel a very real sense of hope. It encourages the reader that in losing some of our dreams we can if willing be part of God's greater plans for our life and a deeper level of intimacy with Him. It explains so clearly the diffrence between happiness and joy. I would recommend to anyone in a place to learn and grow in the midst of pain and loss.
