After going to Winter Jam and hearing Tony Nolan speak, I bought his book "Hurt Healer". It is now one of my favorite books of all time. "Hurt Healer" is about reaching out to people who are hurting or lost. The thing that I love most about this book is how encouraging and challenging it is.
In "Hurt Healer" Tony breaks down the story of the Good Samaritan into three characteristic's that every Christian needs to know in order to reach out to a broken world. Tony also shares alot of his own stories in this book. Also there are alot of times when people don't get a very good impression of Christians, this book gives you alot of ways to be a good representation of Christ. Some of the ways are harder, like "In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you" -Matthew 7:12. Tony breaks that verse down in a way that I have never thought of, he explained that the verse is saying to "Treat people the same way you Want to be treated" not the way they treated you! That's a hard thing to do if you think about it!
The main message of "Hurt Healer" is that Hurting people need to see God and we need to share His love with them. "Hurt Healer" is a must read book for Christians everywhere! You can even check out Tony Nolan's Website and Facebook.
