Undone

When Coming Apart Puts You Back Together

by Laura Sumner Truax

"Undone is both beautiful and accessible, distinctively Christian and broadly spiritual, and as wise as it is down-to-earth. And at every turn, in the best sense of the word, it is truly pastoral."

—Brian D. McLaren, author and speaker

Undone: Book Excerpt 2

To become new people, we have to be free enough to fail. And so does everyone else. The church that Jesus imagined is one where everybody gets a second chance and a third chance, and fiftieth and hundredth chances.
