A Memoir of a Soul that Longs for Beauty
“Unmasked, unsettling, and unforgettable . . . this will change the landscape of your soul.”
A young, accomplished professor and a bestselling author, Jack Deere quickly rose to fame, speaking the world over about the ideal Christian life.
But as the story of his life unfolded, it did not lead where Jack expected.
Even in Our Darkness traces Jack’s story of growing up in the racially-divided south with his two brothers, baby sister, and young mother—who would turn to alcohol and bad relationships to deal with his father’s suicide. After years of “success,” Jack would lose his own son to suicide and his wife to addiction.
Eventually, Jack would come face to face with his own demons—an addiction to success, pride, and his need to control others. Only then would he surrender control and begin to listen.
Prepare yourself for an unvarnished look at the Christian life, told now for the first time. And discover how to deal with disappointment and find beauty, even in our darkness.
