About the Book

Why is God silent in my illness? 

Living with a chronic illness is tough enough on its own, but it can become an overwhelming burden when we believe widespread myths about chronic illness. Without a strategy to overcome these lies, we can descend into a listless existence, even as people of faith.

In Perfectly Abnormal, Chris Morris tears down the erroneous and misinformed beliefs surrounding chronic illness. From the unique standpoint of being both a parent of a special needs daughter and having a seizure disorder himself, Chris guides readers through difficult terrain as he shreds the eight most common myths the chronic illness community faces. Then he begins the conversation of developing a better theology of illness, with the intent of bringing his readers to a place of intentional excellence in spite of their conditions.

Endorsements
Perfectly Abnormal is one of those books that should be required reading for churches longing to provide a welcoming environment for all their members. And it should be required reading for any human who wants to love, empathize, and walk in the shoes of another. I so appreciated Chris Morris’ wise theology of suffering and his keen insight into those who don’t fit the straightjacket of what society calls “normal.” An excellent book, well written.
I highly recommend this book to any person or family trying to deal with a chronic illness. In its pages you will find practical help to move forward, and hope to experience a life worth living. Over the past few years I have witnessed the pain and sorrow experienced by Chris and his family. Chris struggles not only the affects of his own physical illness, but the emotional pain of watching his children wrestle with their own sickness. Add to that the silent frustration and distress caused by well meaning individuals, friends and doctors, who question the reality of his sickness. Through all of this, I have seen his family dust themselves off, pull together, cling to hope, and refuse to give up.
