Lost the Plot: Finding Our Story in a Confusing World


By David S. Wisener

How do we make sense of life? What’s our identity? Mixing memoir with theological and philosophical reflections, author David Wisener explores his struggle to understand God’s love and acceptance in his heart and how to find his place in the world when life didn’t go according to plan. Exploring the postmodern critique that we live our lives according to stories, Lost the Plot helps us realize how many of the stories we cling to aren’t part of God’s Story. Weaving deeply personal experiences of shattered dreams, bouts of depression, and disillusionment with the church, the book also explores concepts like perception, reality, and love, offering unique insight into the struggles and questions we face in understanding what life is about and what it means to be human.
