Quick Overview:

In Wounded by God’s People Anne Graham Lotz draws on the biblical story of Hagar to show those who have been hurt by God’s people how to move past their wounds into the joy and fellowship of His presence, claiming the fullness of the blessings God has for them.

God loves the wounded.  And the wounders.

Tucked into Abraham’s biography is the story of Hagar, a young Egyptian slave with whom Abraham had a son named Ishmael.  Hagar stood out because she was wounded—not physically, but in ways that were as emotionally and spiritually painful as any injury to a body would be. Some wounds were provoked by her own bad behavior, but others were inflicted by those who considered themselves God’s people.

Anne Graham Lotz too has been wounded by God’s people. Some wounds have been deeper than others, some have come out of nowhere, and still others have been provoked by her own behavior, but all of the wounds have been deeply painful. They seemed to hurt even more when the wounders wrapped their behavior in a semblance of religion or piety.

As Hagar’s story unfolds, you will discover that wounded people often become wounders themselves. While Anne identifies with the wounded, the unpleasant reality is that she also identifies with the wounders, because she has been one, too.  She knows from experience that wounding is a cycle that needs to be broken.  And by God’s grace, it can be.

Many have had similar experiences. And perhaps you are among those who have been so deeply hurt that you have confused God’s imperfect people with God. Maybe you have even run away from God as a result.  Or perhaps you have been a wounder to the extent that you are living in a self-imposed exile, believing you are unworthy to be restored to a warm, loving relationship with God or with God’s people. Whatever your hurts may be, Wounded by God’s People helps you to begin a healing journey—one that enables you to reclaim the joy of God’s presence and all the blessings God has for you.

Praise for the Book

I so appreciate Anne writing these honest words about the deep hurts of being wounded . . . betrayed . . . rejected . . . and accused. But we don’t have to just stew and suffer alone. With great wisdom and deep empathy, Anne has given all of us wounded warriors a place of sweet grace to turn to when we get knocked down.

Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and President of Proverbs 31 Ministries

When Christians cause harm to other Christians, there is often a ripple effect: you have the injury itself, then an inability to trust God’s people, and then even an inability to trust God Himself. Anne Graham Lotz provides hope and transformation for this issue in her book. I highly recommend it.

Dr. John Townsend, leadership consultant and psychologist, coauthor of Boundaries

Enemies cannot betray you. Only a friend can. And sometimes, that friend can emerge from your inner circle of closest confidants. It’s why the wounds we suffer at the hands of other Christians always run deep and leave scars. Thankfully, my friend Anne Graham Lotz provides wise words of comfort and encouragement in Wounded by God’s People, one of her finest works. She answers the prophet’s age-old cry “Is there no balm in Gilead?” reminding us that Jesus restores, heals, and gives us the heaven-sent ability to forgive. I heartily recommend Wounded by God’s People for every follower of Jesus!
