Highly Recommended

  • Jul 19, 2009
This profound and touching book deepens the reader's understanding of the Bible and our view of God. It doesn't give easy, pat answers but digs deeper in search of truth and never denies your pain. It focuses on Bible scripture and on Christ, and the insights she points out will bring comfort and healing to your deep sorrows.

This book was written by someone who knows deep sorrow (through the death of two children), but the book is for anyone who has ever struggled with disappointment, heart-break, or hurt of any sort. I'd highly recommend this book to any Christian.

About this book


Guthrie, author of bestsellingHolding On to Hope, continues her theme of suffering in her newest book, written for those of us who find ourselves in places of deep sorrow and suffering. She mines with skill the many treasures found in Jesus' words that we might have skimmed over in the past, the ones we're so familiar with that they have little impact. Ten chapters tap into 10 phrases of Jesus, from My soul is crushed with grief to the point of death in the gospel of Matthew to My grace is all you need in 2 Corinthians. She doesn't offer platitudes, but instead speaks honestly from her own broken heart (she's buried two infants). We want to see the ways God is using our loss for good. Sometimes God... draws back the curtain and shows us;... other times we have to wait. Chapters end with paraphrased versions of Jesus' words, with discussion questions at the end of the book. Guthrie's work is an important study of suffering that offers readers an honest, provocative, grace-filled and soothing salve to their souls.(July)
