Heidi McKendrick’s Secrets of Broken Pottery: Seeing the Great Potter — Being Seen by Him is a wonderfully written, well-researched book with a message that is central in the Bible: God doesn’t abandon His own. The author uses the relationship between the potter and the pottery (God and humanity) to show the solicitude with which God loves His children, even when they feel unworthy and suffering. Even when the pottery is broken, God doesn’t abandon the broken pieces; in fact, He goes after the broken pieces to fashion a purpose, a new creation. Those broken pieces are our hurting humanity, the betrayals we experience, our lack of love and appreciation, our inability to free ourselves from sin, our longing for fulfillment, our inner pain, and the pain we cause ourselves or the one we receive from others. This book shows that the way God sees and loves us is far different from the opinion we have of Him.

I felt showered with grace as I read this book and was thrilled to discover that God called and embraced biblical characters who were not that different from me — Abraham, Job, Hagar, Leah, the Blessed Mother of Jesus, and many others. The author writes in a style that is engaging and conveys a message that touches readers at the very core of their being. There are readers who have been misled to see God as a vindictive person who doesn’t tolerate evil, but this book portrays Him as one filled with compassion and whose inscrutable ways lead us with tenderness back to His heart. This book is filled with spiritual wisdom and insights that will completely change the way most people view their relationship with God. Secrets of Broken Pottery: Seeing the Great Potter — Being Seen by Him is a gift to be received with gratitude and shared with others. It has a nugget of wisdom for everyone.
