Beyond the Past

(1 customer review)

By Elaine Starner



“I’ve made such a mess of things.
Is it too late to change?”
“Will I have to carry this shame and blame for the rest of my life?”
Do those questions haunt you?
God says He is the God of all hope, but what does He say about my past? This book is for all of us who have asked those questions. Lives broken apart, deeply wounded hearts, choices that led to disaster, crushing loads of guilt—these can all be chains of the past that keep us in a dark prison.
But this book isn’t about the messes in our lives. It’s about the hope for our past that answers those questions, breaks those chains, and opens those prison doors.
Is there any hope for me?
God says, “Yes!”

    I used the chapter “New Heart, New Creation” from Beyond the Past in a Bible study—it was powerful!
