Esta es la historia conmovedora y verdadera de como Dios creo este quebrantamiento en otros y el asombroso renacimiento que sucedio. [The second volume in the Revive Our Hearts series for women.

This is such a hard yet impacting book! What if we all were continually broken before God and others? Nancy Leigh DeMoss thoroughly goes over the topic of brokenness showing what it truly is (not just crying and sadness), shows us how to tell if we are broken, shows Biblical examples, and also tells the benefits of it. The message of this book will change your life if you let it!

In the words of Harrison Shockley, this book will "rip your heart out, chop it into pieces, grind those pieces into powder, and then feed it to you." While that's a rather disgusting illustration, what Harrison was basically saying is that this book points out the areas of unsubmitted pride in our lives and crushes it. It realigns our heart with the LORD's by reminding us that we are ridden with pride.

Now you may be thinking, "I don't really struggle with pride that much." If you had that though

Recommends it for: people wanting to draw closer to the Lord
DeMoss begins her book recording an event that occurred in 1995 at a Campus Crusade for Christ staff meeting of four thousand people.

A wave of revival in the form of confession and repentance swept through the group for a number of days and lives were changed.

This book on brokenness and humility has changed the way I think about myself, my sin, and God's provision of Jesus' sacrifice.
She gives quite a list of the way that "Proud People" look at others, God, sin and so on. At least in my culture

Recommends it for: Christians or people who think they are christian
I really loved this book and I think it is much needed in the church. We live in a self-help culture that is constantly selling ideas on how to be happy or how to be made whole often leading people to look within themselves for answers. For the Christian, true joy and the peace of Christ come from being broken before God, that is being broken of your pride, arrogance, self-will and stubbornness. This book gives many examples of biblical figures who made mistakes doing things their way before sub ...more

DeMoss does a masterful job of unpacking the way to go up is be broken down. Want to succeed in any relationship? Be broken. Want to succeed in your work life? Be broken. Humility, hard to live out, is the most effective character trait one can have to succeed in this life. But brokenness is so hard, DeMoss isn't naive to that fact.
In her honest look at brokenness DeMoss shares personal stories of the healing and freedom that comes when a person can walk in life with humility and without entitl

This book made me rethink what I believed about brokenness and how it comes about in my life. After experiencing a time of great brokenness and growth about a decade ago, I almost longed for it again during a spiritually dry season years later. I was scared of the pain, but it seemed worth it in order to experience that kind of growth and closeness with God again. This book has broadened my view of brokenness and helped me to see that I can choose a posture of brokenness in my daily life and rec ...more

Amazing way to look at Brokenness in your Christian walk. It's a lifestyle. A continual process that should happen 24/7. There were several things that stuck out in my mind as i was reading this short book. But the main thing was a quote form Martin Luther, " God creates out of nothing. Therefore until a man is nothing, God can make nothing out of him." This in a nut shell is the essence of the whole book! You have to become nothing for God to use you completely to His utter satisfaction. Our vi ...more

Very practical read, includes a side-by-side comparison of a proud heart and a humble heart. Good to read periodically because pride is one of those things we will never completely master this side of Heaven.

Recommends it for: Everyone!
Now one of my top 5 books I have read this year, I plan on reading this at least once a year. I have a few chosen books that I pick out to "refresh" upon, and this small but powerful book will for sure help in your walk and keeping you grounded with Christ. Learn about what true "Brokenness" is and how to have a personal Revival in your life through saying No to "self" and Yes to Jesus! I Highly recommend this book!
Thomas Kinsfather
A friend recommended this. DeMoss offers an emotional plea for brokenness build around her revival theology. Like much most revivalist writings, the American revivals are wrapped in so much nestalgia and the experiences of that period are lifted up to a biblical norm. Its as if the vast majority of Christians today need more than simply Jesus and their local church. They also need revival, which is usually defined in vague terms.

Very powerful, indeed!!!! :)
As Nancy Leigh DeMoss poignantly conveys...
Brokenness is the entrance to life, freedom
happiness and true joy!

"The sacrifices of God are a broken
spirit: a broken and a contrite heart,
O God, thou wilt not despise."
-Psalm 51:17

A short stimulating, powerful and
life changing read!!
Aaron Downs
DeMoss does a good job of communicating how brokenness is manifested in a believer's life. I enjoyed the read, although at times I believe she could have dug a little deeper. Much of her content seemed to be a watered down version of "The Calvary Road" by Roy Hession. I recommend this book, but Hession's book on the same topic would prove more useful.

this is a good book. really targets the heart and compares the proud christian (pharisee) vs the broken christian. one of those books that really makes us realize no matter how "better" we might think we compare to others, how yucky we truly are deep inside and it makes us face those icky areas of our hearts. i cried in this book.
Lucia
Another great book by DeMoss!! I've read some other titles of her and learnt many things about womanhood. I hope I'd read this book earlier. Strongly rooted in biblical foundation and straightforward were probably what made me continue to read this book. It has forced me to deal with every pitfall in my life that I can find and move towards another step closer to God.

Excellent devotional on Brokenness.
I love how Nancy Leigh DeMoss brings new insight to Biblical stories that I have heard countless times, and gives personal testimony from others who have been brought to a point of brokenness in their own lives, and how this has transformed them.
Highly recommend.

A good book about brokeness, simple and practical to go deeper and deal with pride. Sometimes to easy to read through it but it will let you think about your pride, so often we don't notice how proud we are on ourselves... A good and practical book, surely one to recommend!
Elizabeth Johnson
Good meditation on what brokenness truly is, in God's eyes, and why we should strive to be broken before Him. Also includes a very helpful chart comparing brokenness and pride... convicting and in-depth!

Read as part of the Brokenness/Surrender/Holiness trilogy.

This little book will totally transform what you thought it meant to be broken. As I once heard a preacher say, "If that don't light your fire, your wood is wet!" Buy it! Read it! You won't regret it!

"True worship begins with brokenness and humility over whatever God reveals to us in His Word."

Nancy Leigh DeMoss is authentic. She has also spoken on this subject of brokenness several times. If you can find a video of one of those messages, get it today.

“Brokenness is not a feeling or an emotion. Rather it requires a choice, an act of will...not a one time experience, but an ongoing constant way of life. A lifestyle of agreeing with God about the true condition of my heart and life-not as everyone else thinks it is, but as He knows it to be.” 0 likes
