Some reviews. 

Barry emphasizes the critical need of having supportive people alongside us at the same time he keeps emphasizing connecting with God in prayer. Leah Chang 

‘Broken to Built’ will interest those who are intentionally seeking to build community and safe places for people to become empowered. Janice Corbett 


As a man who has struggled personally with mental health, has worked supporting others in this sector and has had a lifetime of Biblical study and reflection Barry has woven together a very usable, grounded and relevant resource for anyone in recovery or rebuilding their life. 
His emphasis on inviting “alongsiders’ to assist in the rebuilding is pertinent and a great antidote to western individualism and the isolation that often fuels addictions and exacerbates mental health conditions. 
Short chapters, relevant quotes, and a practical encouraging style make it an easy book to dip into or use as a daily reflection. Andrew Connolly M. Ed (Hons) Couns., B Min, Grad Cert. Teacher Ed., Cert HRD, Advanced Certificate in Supervision (NZAC and University of Auckland)
