Two-time GRAMMY winning hip-hop artist and bestselling author Lecrae will release his new Zondervan-published new book, I Am Restored: How I Lost My Religion but Found My Faith, on October 13, 2020.
"My forthcoming album, Restoration, chronicles the process of healing, and my book, I Am Restored, is about the journey toward healing," said Lecrae. "My prayer is that I Am Restored will inspire readers to embrace the freedom and healing they need and to escape the despair, anxiety, doubt, and fear so many of us battle."
I Am Restored is the heartbreaking yet liberating journey that led award-winning hip-hop artist and bestselling author Lecrae to face the unhealed wounds of his past. With a hard look at common sources that cause us pain, Lecrae offers the practices he's found for healing the pain we all carry, and stepping into the freedom God calls us to.
The never-before-told story of Lecrae's loss of faith after the experiences of his past threatened to ruin his career and life.
Lecrae had inspired millions with his redemptive and gut-honest art. But when his personal life spun into chaos, he was forced to face the buried impact of the unhealed wounds--sexual abuse, physical trauma, addiction, and depression--that threatened to tear it all apart. Along the way, he realized the wounds we all carry have the potential to be unlikely guides to healing and freedom for ourselves, and others.
With vulnerable honesty and transformational yet simple steps you can apply today, Lecrae shares the personal practices he uses in his daily life for mental, emotional, and spiritual health. With powerful prose, he gives an unflinching look at the personal and public spaces that sadly hurt us so often--culture, politics, family, church, personal failure--and reminds us that learning to let go and forgive is the birthplace for the life of creativity and freedom God has for us.
I Am Restored is an inspiring charge to embrace the lasting healing and restoration available now, and that we all desperately long for, because no matter what you've experienced, God is near, He hears, and He's not done with you yet.
