Broken: Picking Up the Pieces After the Fall, by Dr. Paul Murray, is an inspirational book designed to help anyone who has experienced failures in life. Containing sixteen chapters and a conclusion, it is a guide on how to deal with your personal disappointments and letdowns, which are mostly the results of your own actions. Using his own failure as an example and the Scripture as inspiration, the author relates how we should deal with our own shortcomings. There are a number of steps that one has to take to overcome failure and the first critical step is to rise up and acknowledge your own actions. It is also important to know that no one is immune to failure. The book encourages the reader to write down their own thoughts and provides extremely helpful ideas for those who want to take the road leading to restoration and success.
Dr. Paul Murray’s book, Broken: Picking Up the Pieces, is a must-read for everyone and this is because we all experience failure in our lives at one time or another. What makes this book credible is the fact that the author writes candidly about his own mistakes to drive his point home. Although inspired by the Bible, he does not sound preachy and righteous, and this should make the book appealing to believers and non-believers alike. The chapters relating Bible stories like that of Samson and King David, as well as accounts of how some historical figures like Lincoln and Churchill dealt with failures, are interesting and inspiring to read. This is a book that offers essential and helpful information for those who need it the most - people who believe that they have failed in their lives - and it could be your wife, husband, child, friend or even yourself. This book is for all of us!
