This book is a must read for followers of Jesus. The church is called to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world, walking with people in their struggles. It will help us to walk with people if we understand them and the origin of those struggles and what may be helpful. This book is a readable, practical guide for the faith community. Readers will learn how early adversity may explain many struggles that they themselves and others have. That is not where the story ends, though. Readers will be equipped with tools that can reduce addiction and mental health struggles.
Not only is Dr. Clements is a "sold out follower of Jesus," but she is also a university researcher who studies addiction, child development, and the effects of adversity. This book combines science and scripture to equip the church. Understanding the connection between past adversity and life struggles such as addiction, anxiety, depression can help us to move ourselves and others toward flourishing.
