A millennial Catholic priest writes to his generation to answer their concerns with God and the Catholic Church, and invites them to discover what they may have been missing.    


Only 2 in 10 Americans under 30 believe attending a church is important or worthwhile.

Well over half of young adults raised in the Catholic Church have dropped out—with many having a strong anti-Church stance, even believing the Church does more harm than good.

Fr. Josh Johnson was one of these people.

Was.


In Broken and Blessed he tackles the harsh realities facing the Catholic Church in the 21st century.

With charity and courage he speaks to his own generation of Catholic Millennials, who often feel their needs and concerns are not being addressed by the Church; or who simply do not believe the Catholic Faith has any relevance to their lives.

Using his own experiences, both as a former struggling young Catholic and as a priest, Fr. Josh Johnson offers an inspiring witness of how he came to know God, rather than just knowing about him—and presents practical ways for us to truly know God as well.



Broken and Blessed:

  • Addresses head-on Millennials’ most pressing issues with the Catholic Faith
  • Presents powerful and inspiring stories from Fr. Josh Johnson’s own faith journey
  • Shows how one can truly encounter Jesus in a personal way
  • Offers practical insights on how to overcome habitual sins
  • Discusses the nature of prayer, as well as the challenges to prayer and how to overcome them

Broken, yet incredibly blessed!

It was a blessing to be able to read this wonderful book. A truly wonderful invitation with lots of real and down to earth annecdotes, insightful scripture and great prayer recommendations. Fr. Josh Johnson is very relatable and understands our daily struggles in a fast-paced world. This book is great for readers of any age especially for those who may feel the need to come back to God but just need that little push forward.

Broken & Blessed

When I first heard about the title and author, I was very intrigued! Millennials... at times, very difficult to have a discussion about our Catholic faith. This is an easy and open ended way to do so! Father Josh makes it very easy to understand why the Catholic church stands firm in its doctrines and teachings in spite of today’s social culture. Refreshing! Purchased several copies! Intended as a good conversation starter with my children and family. Recommending this book for my Bible study group .

Excellent read

As an older woman reading this book, I was very impressed by the style, content, message given by Father Josh. He gave personal examples of his own experiences with sin and practical ways that worked for him to overcome temptation. He also related the stories of others struggles.
The prayers, questions at the end of each chapter were a good way to reflect back on the message of the chapter.
It was our book club book for this month and was well received by everyone.
