New beginnings are possible no matter how broken, devastated, messy, or crazy someone’s life may be.

About the Book

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.
