Hope for your heart May 12, 2007
This book is an excellent one for anyone who is struggling with grief. It may be that you are grieving a loved one, your own failing health, or like me, raising a disabled child you wished was whole. The comfort of this book comes not just by reading of the tragedies in the lives of the authors, but in the ultimate truths that Ken Ham and Carl Wieland point out. It is my favorite gift to give someone who is going through a difficult time.
Gripping and on target Feb 19, 2003
It's easy to talk about what happens in the bad times. It is more of a challenge to walk the talk. Having a biblical worldview equips you for the tough times. Ironically, skeptics who ask "if there is a good God why is there so much evil" often miss the point that evil only exists as an objective reality if there is a God who defines good in the first place. Authors Ken Ham and Dr. Carl Wieland show how evil exists as a consequence of human sin, and show through their personal experiences how this understanding gives the strength to overcome profound tragedy.
Without giving too much away, this includes a horrible head-on collision that shattered medical doctor Carl Wieland's body, as well as the Ham families' recent experience with the untimely loss of his brother due to a degenerative brain disease. My wife was able to relate to the experience of the first, having been broad-sided by a driver running a red light and having suffered permanent back injuries as a result. This is not fluff Christianity, and if it does seem stilted at times in the latter half, it is only because the authors have been talking the right talk for so long they've got it down pat, which is not a bad thing.
A profoundly written and powerfully inspiring spiritual read Dec 5, 2002
Walking Through Shadows: Finding Hope In A World Of Pain by Ken Ham and Carl Wieland is an engaging and thought-provoking compilation of true accounts of personal suffering (such as everyone has or will experience in the course of ordinary life), ranging from the loss of a loved one, to the slow destruction of health and life through incurable disease. Specifically written to help Christian readers understand why such horrid things exist in God's world, and expressing a deep admiration for a God who offers comfort and wisdom to his people for the purpose of for learning to cope with tragedy and to look forward to the future, Walking Through Shadows is a profoundly written and powerfully inspiring spiritual read which is confidently recommended to a Christian readership regardless of denominational affiliation or theological orientation.
Succinct and staunchly Biblically based Sep 7, 2002
This the most excellent treatise on human suffering and the effect of original sin I have ever read. Succinct and staunchly Biblically based, "Walking Though Shadows" helped me to assemble many fractured thoughts in my own experiences. In August of 2000 my father went home to be with the Lord after 6 weeks in a coma following surgery. Thirteen months later our newborn baby boy followed him into glory. They lay beside each other now awaiting resurrection. Many of the thoughts in this book had begun to formulate in my mind, as I stated earlier, though intense study of the Word. Thank you Ken and Carl for your Biblical presentation. It is so very important that we know the Bible teaching that we live in a cursed world in corruptible bodies, and that we should not be swept away by any wind of false doctrine. But praise be to the Lord, one day corruption will change to incorruption and mortal to immortality. And then the culmination of all the promises of Christ. This book is a must read, especially if you are ensconced in the belief of "faith healing", i.e., that lack of healing = lack of faith. This is not to say that God does not heal today. He most certainly does, as is demonstrated in "Walking Though Shadows". May the comfort of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
