Benji Kelley is the real deal. He is a winsome and living example of the power of the Gospel to change a life dramatically and redeem it for a greater good. Wreck and Redeemed will inspire and challenge you on how God led a drug addict to jail to megachurch pastor of one of the most dynamic multisite, multi-racial churches in America. Benji tells his riveting story and the story of newhope church through an insightful exposition of the story of Jesus recorded in the Gospel of John. Read it, learn, laugh and weep.

““This changes everything” is more than a phrase for Benji Kelley and newhope church. It is a way of life. When lost people find Jesus, it changes everything! When prodigals find grace and truth and come back home to God, it changes everything. When love and acceptance are offered to everyone, everything changes. The power of God and His Word in a person’s life and in a congregation’s life changes everything! Benji personally knows what it means to be redeemed and put back together again through supernatural providence. Let the stories and the eye-witness account of the work of Jesus Christ within Wrecked and Redeemed bring about the eternal change your life and church needs. Learn to live again. Learn to hope again. Learn to love and be loved again! Wrecked and Redeemed truly does give glory to God for redeeming and restoring all kinds of people like you and me.”

“Benji takes us on a gritty dance between Gospel and Truth, between story and passion, between where the church is and where the church might be. Indeed it is a timely dance, an essential dance for all who believe the local church is still the hope of the world.”

“My friend Benji has given us a marvelous gift in writing Wrecked and Redeemed. Benji is a trophy of God’s grace.  He is living proof that no one is too far gone to be saved by the rescuing love of Jesus! This book will inspire your faith and lead others to faith in Jesus.”
