Odds are, these sins are on your "never" list--things you would never, under any circumstance, do. You love God; you read your Bible, pray, go to church; maybe you're even involved in ministry. As such, you're convinced there are certain sins and behaviors that will never touch you. You're too faithful. You're untouchable.

Yet this is the kind of thinking that sets you up for failure--for doing the very things you think you'll never do.

Pastor and author Brittany Rust was one such person--until she found herself in the middle of moral failure and a church correction. She was bewildered, humiliated and ashamed, but God's grace met her on the ground. Here she unravels the myth of being "untouchable," showing how we start to believe the lie and how we can protect ourselves from temptation. Only when we're willing to admit weakness and lean on Jesus can we truly flourish in this life.

"Brittany's story and her dynamic biblical insight offer a fresh and much-needed perspective on failure and restoration that everyone needs to hear!"--DEBBIE LINDELL, lead pastor, James River Church; author, She Believes

"A beautiful and courageous cautionary tale of how easy it is to fall, precisely when you think you are standing firm. Read it. You won't regret it."--CHAD BRUEGMAN, directional leader and teaching pastor, Red Rocks Church

"In Untouchable, Brittany takes Ernest Hemingway's idea, to write hard and clear about what hurts, to the limit. In doing so, she exposes her greatest struggles as a harbinger so others can avoid the traps of ignorance and unpreparedness--and instead experience God's unflinching protection, grace and love."--KIRK NOONAN, chief visioneer, Left Field Innovation Lab

"I am honored to know Brittany and to have had the privilege of being a part of this beautiful story of hope and redemption. As she opens up the secret places of her heart to touch yours, the rawness and honesty of her words will captivate your attention. The message of this book is so needed, not only for those who are experiencing the pain and consequences of sexual sin, but for those who desire to keep from experiencing that pain. I believe Brittany's story and her dynamic biblical insight offer a fresh and much-needed perspective on failure and restoration that everyone needs to hear!"

Debbie Lindell, lead pastor, James River Church; author, She Believes

"I love courageous people! I (probably like most of you) am a sucker for stories of unbridled courage. As I've gotten older and have become a passionate student of human behavior, I've come to this conclusion about courage: The highest form of courage is vulnerability. Untouchable is a beautiful and courageous cautionary tale of how easy it is to fall, precisely when you think you are standing firm. Brittany's vulnerability about her own struggle and weakness is refreshing. It's a cup of cold water to a dry and weary soul. Read it. You won't regret it."

Chad Bruegman, directional leader and teaching pastor, Red Rocks Church
