Dry Dock of a Thousand Wrecks: How Christ Jesus Saved the Broken and Hopeless

Here is what Christ can do. Here is what Christ is doing amid all our uncertainties and amid all our controversies. Here is something to be seen. God's grace is making men gracious. God's love is making men lovely.
In the early 20th century, the Ole Jerry McAuley Mission provided a haven for destitute alcoholics and addicts who had spiritual experiences during their incarceration. Despite the failure of medical treatment for alcoholism, the mission gave hope to these broken souls through surrendering to Christ Jesus. In his book, 'Dry Dock of a Thousand Wrecks', Philip Ilott Roberts shares the stories of these thousand wrecks who were lifted out of impotence and debasement into moral strength and beauty.
This book is a testament to the power of surrendering to Christ Jesus and the transformation it can bring to those who are broken. Through the witness of grace abounding, the work of faith, labor of love, and patience of hope, these thousand wrecks were saved to save. As J.H. Jowett, pastor of the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York, said, 'Here is what Christ can do.
Here is what Christ is doing amid all our uncertainties and amid all our controversies. Here is something to be seen. God's grace is making men gracious. God's love is making men lovely.' This book is a powerful reminder of the work of Christ in the lives of those who are broken and hopeless. Listen to the full podcast episode now here on alcoholfree.com to learn more.
