Book Summary of Whole by Steve Wiens


Brokenness is all around us. Shards cover the world and people who are in desperate need for peace and wholeness. God intends us to be whole and to make things whole. We can see the jagged edges made smooth as we move from brokenness to wholeness for a better life, for a better world, and for seeking restoration in ourselves and our communities.

Broken pieces manifest inside of us, causing pain. What we need is shalom, peace, and to be made whole again. Scripture reveals an overarching story leading to wholeness. It speaks of people with heartbreaking brokenness being restored and made whole. “We prolong our pain when we try to fix the brokenness without going on a journey of restoration, which includes additional heartache, questions, and long periods of waiting.” (p. xviii)

Our journey to wholeness asks us five questions:

  1. “Where are you?” (p. xix)
  2. “Am I my brother’s keeper?” (p. xx)
  3. “What are you seeking?” (p. xx)
  4. “Where are you going?” (p. xx)
  5. “What will you bring?” (p. xx)

When we reflect on these questions as we move from slavery to the wilderness to the Promised Land, we will, at last, discover what’s inside of us “to restore what’s broken, in me, you, and the entire world” (p. xxiii).
