In what has to be one of the finest books I have ever read, Wellspring’s founder, Naomi Zacharias, examines the issues that surround some of the darkest, most brutal circumstances in our world today. I encourage you to read it; to pray through it, to mark it’s pages with compassionate tears, and finally, to examine your own heart and life and position before the Cross.You can download an excerpt here.
Tolle lege my friends. It’s just that good.
“Follow Naomi as she talks to women working in brothels in Mumbai; survivors of an Indonesian tsunami in which more than 160,000 lives were lost; a young girl waiting on an operation to save her life; and victims of domestic violence horrifically burned by fire. Be still with her when she realizes the pain she feels in the face of these extreme injustices reveals a common struggle that exists within all of humanity. And rise with her as she wrestles with confusion over her identity, comes face to face with redemption, and then begins to understand her own story … and to find her calling. The Scent of Water will open your eyes to the complexities of the world, showing you pain can also be beauty, and how each are found in the unlikeliest of places. Zacharias doesn’t have all the answers. But she has hope and encouragement that will empower you to find and begin the adventure of your life.”
