Written in an easy-to-understand, conversational style, Restoring the Shattered is an account of Nancy E. Head's journey through single-motherhood and poverty. The permanent divide between her and her husband led to a shattering of their family as the children settled into separate camps. The story begins when Nancy and her children have little to eat. Through a miraculous intervention, God provides--and leads them along their way. Other interventions and more guidance came from people of different denominations, illustrating Christ's love through the larger Church.
When one of Nancy's grown children became Catholic, she became more aware of the ways her own evangelical tradition often dismisses Catholic believers and misinterprets many of their doctrines. While doctrines may differ, so many essential beliefs are the same. Restoring the Shattered looks at the causes of the Reformation and other schisms, and how the original schism in Christianity happened because of a mistranslation. Misunderstanding others' faith languages feeds so much separation today. Nancy encourages pursuing accord among evangelical, Catholic, and Christian Orthodox communities in order to lead the Church to the kind of ministry that helped Nancy's family so much and rebuild the ruins of society through obedience to Christ's call for Christian accord.
