When Your Twenties Are Darker Than You Expected explores the darkest, most unmanageable emotions that your twenties grow in your gut: Depression, Suicidality, Regret, Grief, Doubt, Dissatisfaction, Anxiety, Loneliness, and Lust.

You may not know any of these words intimately. If that's the case, I recommend you don't purchase this book. This is a meeting place for those who are desperate in their darkness, with the clear conviction that God and humanity have abandoned them.

"Paul's writing is like Tim Ferris meets S ren Kierkegaard - the tactical colliding with the existential."
-Stephen Christian, lead singer of Anberlin

""Paul Maxwell is the Kierkegaard of our generation. ... If you know what I mean when I say 'Darkness, ' then you simply must buy this book."
-Daniel Montgomery, Founder of Sojourn Network

"This book ... is exemplary, as well as unique: raw, confessional, and devotional; something like Augustine meets Sylvia Plath."
-Eric Johnson, Lawrence and Charlotte Hoover Professor of Pastoral Care, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Paul is one of the most intelligent people I know, fiercely honest, and genuine. That's the kind of companion and guide you need. ... His writing is studded with thoughtful allusions, poetic phrases, and images. Mine them for their riches. Meditate on them."
-Winston Smith, CCEF Faculty, Episcopal Priest
