Item description for Wounded Hearts, Broken Minds by Jm Kane...
Overview Cane disentangles the web of deceit that teaches believers to be content with the mediocre, narrow-minded life they imagine for themselves in favor of the exceptional existence God has for them. (Practical Life)
Publishers Description Jesus came to bring abundant life. Yet the burdens of the world and the desires of sinful man often cloud the freedom and joy that are supposed to be hallmarks of a Christian life. This book disentangles the web of deceit that teaches us to be content with the mediocre, narrow-minded life we imagine for ourselves in favor of the exceptional existence God has for us. It is a journey that forces the Christian to examine his beliefs about truth, faith, God, freedom, the self, media, education, family, and more. The liberation from this bondage lies in selfless commitment to God expressed through personal growth in the daily life of the family. Sustaining an abundant life hinges on a lifelong learning process that tests everything and holds to what is good. JM Kane was born in Portland, Oregon. Soon afterwards, his family moved to Thailand as missionaries. He spent 16 years split between Thailand, Malaysia, and the Philippines before returning to the United States to obtain a BA in Bible and Recreation from Houghton College. He has worked extensively with hurting youth for the past six years and has temporarily set that aside to hone his skills in business. He currently resides in Lemoore, CA with his family.

The Old Testiment Prophets Were Unpopular, Too! Oct 15, 2008
While on an online forum, I was drawn to a conversation in which the author of this book was taking an unpopular stand on an issue being heatedly debated. Not only were his views often different than the others on the forum, but he always had an answer for why he believed what he believed. I began to greatly respect his opinions and his willingness to stand for truth. When heard that he had written a book, I decided to check it out.
"Wounded Hearts, Broken Minds" covers a wide range of topics, with the all encompassing theme of embracing truth and exposing deception. Many of the things discussed were from a perspective I had never before considered. Some would call him too radical, but while I didn't agree with him on every point, I admire his desire to pursue righteousness. JM is a modern day prophet, a "whistleblower" in a dark and depraved generation.
If you want to be challenged in your thinking about education, media, politics and a host of other topics relative to Christian living, definitely check out this book. If you don't want to think, don't bother. As JM himself said, "I consider my book, not as a book of answers, but as a very personal journal...a documented journey through the realm of thought." Approached as such, it can be an encouragement to other believers.
truth... May 16, 2008
If the adversary can keep you from believing the truth - any truth - he will. I am convinced that he would not want you to read this book either. There is too much truth in it - too many lies revealed for what they are. Wounded Hearts, Broken Minds is a book for those hearty souls who are willing to see things as they are. Using scripture to back his writing, JM Kane, skillfully points out the realities that young people and old alike are facing in this world. His views on media, education, culture, politics, health, religion and society are thought provoking and sobering. A must-read for every truth-seeker.
Prepare to be Stretched! Dec 20, 2007
"JM Kane has launched out into waters less traveled with the publication of his first book, Wounded Hearts, Broken Minds. Not for the faint of heart or dull of mind, this personal volume will enlighten and challenge its readers on many of our cherished institutions, our notions about life, and of God. Some may set is aside, labeling the author a 'pessimist'. Others won't put it down until they're finished, claiming the voice of a 'prophet' has spoken. Rest assured, there's no middle ground or neutral territory here. So whether you're new in the faith or you've walked with the Lord for some time, prepare yourself for a journey that will prod you to take action."
