Broken and Redeemed is the story of one man’s journey, beginning with John Jarman’s troubled childhood and challenges as an adult, and resolving as he finds redemption in the grace of God.
John Jarman openly writes his challenges, failures, losses, and blessings on the pages of Broken and Redeemed. While exploring himself through counseling and mentorship, John was led to completely surrender his life to Jesus, finding strength in faith and power through the presence of the Holy Spirit in his life. He shares with readers what helped him reach this critical juncture and transformation in his life, along with relevant self-reflection and discussion questions for group or personal use.
It is John Jarman’s desire that Broken and Redeemed guides readers through a deeper examination of their faith—one that exposes how accepting Christ is easy but walking in true obedience will place them in situations they never thought they would encounter. John knows that listening to God’s voice and following it will lead willing believers on the path He wants to take them; when they get on board with Him, that is when they truly begin to live!

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.
