At twelve years old, James Carroll became the collateral damage of his pastor father's infidelity and his parents' divorce. With his world completely shaken and identity in shreds, he could hardly process what was happening, let alone begin regaining normality. In Collateral Damage, Carroll, now a pastor himself, presents the specific ways in which God has worked in his life during and since that time - healing wounds, revealing sin, and restoring life. This is a highly practical book, showing the gospel as the power of God to save, to restore, and to heal.
James B. Carroll has been the Senior Pastor at Parkway Baptist in Bardstown, Kentucky since 2010.
This work is solid gold. Read it. Apply it. You and those around you will be glad you did.

Every soul is broken by personal sin and the consequences of others' sin and every Christian is called to minister to broken souls, beginning with his or her own. Carroll's book is a consecrated prescription to follow.
