Book Review: The Broken Way by Ann Voskamp

The Broken Way
Ann Voskamp: The Broken Way


What if you really want to live abundantly before it’s too late? What do you do if you really want to know abundant wholeness?

THOUGHTS: Ann Voskamp has a way with her words that never fails to touch my heart and in this case, to break my heart — in a good way. Her first book, One Thousand Gifts, remains one of my favorites. The Broken Way became a favorite the moment I started reading the book.

There is so much brokenness in this world, and in my heart too, and Ann Voskamp gives a whole new meaning to our brokenness: to be in true fellowship with others, to truly give our hearts to the Lord and to know His, we must learn to give our one broken heart to others. It is the foundation of love: facing our own brokenness and giving our hearts away to those who are broken just like us. It is in this giving, that we become more like the givenness of God Himself and our hearts are changed to become more like His.

I started reading this book while going through a season that had my heart breaking. There was suffering, so much hurt in my heart — and The Broken Way carried all this hurt and brought meaningful purpose to it. Ann Voskamp has with her words moved my heart once again in a big way, to draw close to the heart of God and serve Him with the little that I have.

This book is for those of us who carry a heart that has been bruised and broken, yet want to reach out in love. This book is for those who dream of a world more beautiful, and want to take steps of faith towards that. This book is a must read, for all of us.

A QUOTE: “Who knows why God allows heartbreak, but the answer must be important enough because God allows His heart to break too.”

    1. I myself love the way Voskamp writes but I know many who have a hard time with it.
