"The Creaking on the Stairs: Finding Faith in God Through Child Abuse" by Mez McConnell
The terrible reality of abuse in this world is a topic we too often shy away from in the church. It is confronted head-on through the life of Mez McConnell. Truthfully, this is a book that has no easy answers. This is a book that tries to get behind the tough questions of why God permits such abuses to occur in this world. Using his own story of childhood abuse and his unlikely faith in Christ, Mez tells us about a God who is just, sovereign, and loving. A good father who knows the pain of rejection and abuse, who hates evil, who can bring hope even in the darkest place.
