Have you ever felt the loneliness that overwhelms the soul—the longing to be loved and truly accepted? In this rich parable, a sad boy named Willie Juan finds belonging in the eyes of the mysterious Man of Sorrows. But as Willie Juan grows into a man, he discovers great success in the world, and loses what matters most.
"In the end, only one thing remains—Abba's love."
More than a charming tale, Patched Together is the parable of a man broken and restored, a man who is healing even as he embraces the beauty of his scars. This is a story in which you will see yourself, see hope in darkness—and see the joyful Man of Sorrows who calls you home.
