When it comes to Christ-centered recovery, we, the church, have work to do.
Our legalistic, box-checking, one-size-fits-all programs produce astonishingly high failure rates—which means far too many people are left to fight addiction, mental health problems, and suicidal thoughts on their own.
This begs some critical questions of the church:
• Do we really believe transformational recovery and healing is possible?
• Do we really have the right systems and structures to support struggling people?
• Do we really carry a kingdom responsibility to restore people gently?
This book is for anyone who can’t offer a resounding yes and amen to each of those questions.
With hearts that beat for those struggling with addictions and mental health issues, authors George A. Wood and Brit Eaton present:
• Powerful supernatural testimonies and stories of hope, healing, and life restoration as a result of embracing The Uncovery
• Practical strategies to help Christ-centered recovery leaders bridge the gap between spiritual and scientific communities to better serve struggling people
The goal of The Uncovery is to help the church—and the world—see recovery through a grace- laced, gospel lens. Some say recovery is the civil rights movement of our generation because believe it or not, recovery is for everyone. And if that statement bothers you? Recovery might be for you, too.
The Uncovery Journey
In their unapologetically raw, real, and restorative way, Wood and Eaton challenge Christian leaders to go beyond traditional addiction, mental health, and suicide recovery programming as led by the Holy Spirit to embrace The Uncovery Journey—a unique, authentic, powerful path toward a promised-land life that’s worth staying sober for.
Meet George's co author Brit Eaton, a writer, speaker, discipler, and all-around pursuer of the Kingdom of God. She helps nonprofit, and ministry leaders find the words to say to move people to action
All of us are recovering from something. Whether it’s an addiction, a painful incident from our past, or a daily challenge just to get by in this world, something is holding us back from the promised-land life God wants for us.
Real recovery isn’t a one-time event or a process that fits into twelve steps or a preset length of time. Uncovering how to live free of what holds you back is a lifelong journey, and one that is best traveled with others.
The Uncovery Devotional: Rethinking Recovery One Day at a Time will help you take those steps toward a better, healthier, happier you. The authors, George A. Wood and Brit Eaton, know that battles with addiction, mental health, suicidal thoughts, and past trauma cannot be won overnight. They’ve been in your shoes. And they provide the love, commitment, and compassion that will help you uncover and heal the bottom-line issue that causes you to struggle in the first place.
Each month follows a theme, such as reflection, relationship, and reconciliation, while each day provides a short Scripture and prayer.
Wild opportunities for hope, healing, and transformation exist for you in the Christian recovery space because you’re not working to recover an old, broken life—you’re going after a brand new one.
You’ll discover the truth about who you really are and Whose you really are so that you can reach deep levels of healing and deliverance.
