Publisher's Summary

Find freedom and healing from painful memories and relational struggles and learn how your past has uniquely prepared you to experience more joy. 

Tragedy and pain inevitably touch our lives in some way. We long to feel whole, but more often than not, the way we've learned to deal with our wounds pushes us away from the very restoration we need most. Renowned psychologist Dr. Dan Allender and counselor and teacher Cathy Loerzel present a life-changing process of true connection and healing with ourselves, God, and others. 

With a clear, biblically trustworthy method, Allender and Loerzel walk you through a journey of profound inner transformation - from the shame and hurt of old emotional wounds to true freedom and healing. Drawn from modern research and their pioneering work at the Allender Center, they will help you identify your core trauma in one of the three outcast archetypes - the widow, orphan, or stranger - and chart your path of growth into the God-given roles of priest, prophet, or leader. This book will help you learn: 

  • What to do about feeling out-of-place and directionless
  • How your coping mechanisms create a false sense of health
  • How to embrace your divine calling and find lasting reconciliation
  • How your heart wounds are your unique invitation to true strength and purpose

Your past pain does not dictate your life. Answer the call to healing and discover your life's beautiful story and a future of hope and freedom.

Application questions are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A little too political.

I have been a huge fan of Dan Allender and Cathy Loerzel. I listen to the Allender Center Podcast and also Adam Young's podcast The Place We Find Ourselves. I have read The Wounded Heart twice -- it is brilliant work. I listened to How Children Raise Their Parents twice. I loved the Healing Path. I have considered signing up for an in person certificate program and for the Story Sage workshop. All of that to say: I am a big fan.

I heard about this book on the podcasts I listen to before it came out, and I really appreciate the concepts behind it. Unfortunately, I don't feel like I can recommend it to friends or family members. It really crosses a line into being too political and having a political agenda. I don't mind having people in my intellectual circles that don't share my politics and are more liberal. I have good friends that don't. I just found it to be too much with this book -- naming names, only seeing fault on one side of the aisle, etc. I feel like people on the other side tend to lack empathy and punch down at those of us in flyover country. Hillbilly Elegy touches on some of this.

Allender's message is a great one. It is a shame his increasingly political stance is saying "If you are a deplorable, this message isn't for you." I feel like this is bad counseling technique, and it lacks empathy for those with different sincerely-held views.

this audiobook doesn't work

I'm sure the book is great but it isn't working, at first I thought it was just my app but all my other books work, I'm not sure what's wrong.

Listened in one day

I purchased the audio version this amazing book and now want to buy the hand copy to go through it at a slow pace to really take in the beauty and thoughtfulness of the authors thoughts and words. I agreed with much and have questioned several things to want to sit with the authors and ask more questions.

Just what I needed to hear at the right time

It's an interesting way of looking at things about emotional pain and how we can understand it, categorize it and turn it into something beautiful and helpful for the others around us. As a mother I liked the woman's approach on the subject. I will listen to it again.
