About the Book

The life of an abused child is filled with pain and self-blame. And there is the never-ending question of why one of the people who is supposed to love you is also responsible for hurting you. Millions of children experience abuse and neglect every day. For most, their stories go untold. In author Jack Flynn’s memoir, Smash-Mouth Jesus—A Memoir: God’s Answer to Violence, he takes you on a journey of redemption through the nightmare of helplessness and self-hatred associated with child abuse. Flynn illustrates the challenges an abandoned and abused child faces when thrown into a cruel world with no direction. He shares his journey of coming to terms with a God he fears—a God who seems to be cruel and all-powerful. Each day Flynn faced the challenge to trust the God who seemed to be destroying him. Smash-Mouth Jesus—A Memoir: God’s Answer to Violence is a story of working through the past and not letting it define you. As Flynn shows, that journey is long and difficult, and the temptation to give up can be great. But if one perseveres, the rewards and love are tremendous.
