XEALOTS offers a different way of looking at God, ourselves and others. Dave Gibbons shows how God shapes us through pain and how our greatest failures may actually be God's greatest gifts. He illustrates how our culture's emphasis on power, strength, and giftedness is often misguided. In our efforts at gaining power and living out of our strengths, we fail to deal with our suffering in a way that is honest. God's power is perfected not in our strengths but in our weakness and pain. As a XEALOT you'll learn to fight with weapons of love, not destruction, as you follow the path first trod by Jesus--the way of suffering that leads to God's glory.
