Pastor Jon Weece, author of Jesus Prom, shows readers how God makes safe, loving, open places for people who have been wounded by the world.
Violence, racism, child abuse, addiction, war, starvation, disease--pain is easy to come by in this world. Yet sometimes Christians feel pressured to ignore evil or even attribute it to God's hand.
In the tradition of C.S. Lewis's The Problem of Pain, Jon Weece's Me Too is an unflinching look at the heartache of life in a fallen universe, and a welcome message for Christians who are tired of having the pain in their lives dismissed.
The lesson of Me Too is as simple as it is rare: it's okay to feel bothered by pain. It bothers God so much so that he came to take it on face-to-face.
We have a Father who paid the highest possible price to rid the world of suffering--suffering he didn't create and suffering he doesn't cause--that breaks his heart. It is as right for us to mourn with those who suffer as it is for us to help them heal. Me Too is an invitation to do both.
