I was the cause of my world being broken. Within days of this terrrible implosion a friend told me to read this book. God absolutely used this book in rebuilding my broken world. Now I have a life that is much more than I ever thought I could have. The road was long and not easy but you can rebuild your life again.
Outstanding Insights for All Avenues of Christian Life Aug 22, 2001
MacDonald offers painfully insightful looks into the lives of "broken world people." I have witnessed many persons of great faith whose personal worlds have crashed down around them, and MacDonald's book offers hope and practical advice for rebuilding their lives. I especially appreciated the chapter devoted to strategies on how to avoid "broken world experiences." Great insights for every Christian!

This book offers hope and inspiration for those who have been broken....It leads the reader to a clear understanding of God's unbelievable grace. I thank God that Gordon MacDonald and his wife, Gail, are willing to share from their pain and experience. Their writings have been a true gift.
Not as good as first book. May 25, 2000
This is a very good book, but pales in comparison to "Ordering your Private world.
