Broken and Redeemed

Broken and Redeemed by John Jarman tells his story of redemption. Jarman wasn’t always a spiritual person and initially wasn’t even convinced that he would want to write a book about his story. But, after seven years of trying and delaying, he finally shared his story about how he was once broken and then found redemption when he was ready for it. The title Broken and Redeemed came to Jarman one day in his prayers. It means to highlight how we all are broken, and then once we are ready to come home, we are redeemed.

I really liked this honest book because of the level of self-awareness and humbleness depicted. The author constantly reminds the reader that he, too, is just another flawed and broken human being and not a pastor. This makes the author more relatable and removes the feeling of alienation that people feel in their darkest times. At the end of each chapter, readers will find a set of “Reflection or Discussion” questions that encourage them to actively engage with the book. The author does not want to just share his story; instead, he wants to help readers take steps to find their own redemption.

The overall format of the book is well written with multiple styles. It is interspersed with various quotes, poems, images and formatted with headings and bullet points. This helps keep the reader’s interest and makes the book easier to grasp while still maintaining the conversational and personal tone of the book.

Broken and Redeemed would be an excellent book for those looking for a simple spiritual read. The Christian perspective will be inspiring to those who identify as part of the Christian faith. It is also a short memoir for those that enjoy reading about others’ personal transformations.
