Balm and So True Jun 15, 2006
When life deals a severe blow, it's one thing to hear "you'll be all right," but another to hear "you'll be blessed." "The Blessings of Brokenness" is a reassuring blend of grace and truth that ministers both to the emotions and to the mind. Stanley shares reasons, obstacles, processes, and blessings of being broken. While offering truth to hold on to, the book has the relational tone of a compassionate friend, rather than a detached, academic counseling guide. It's small size, substance, and tone make the book a good choice for giving to those in pain, including grief. (It's also available in audio, a format that could be useful, since sometimes reading even a small book might be too much exertion for a friend who feels like [...], pierced, pummeled, shattered, or just plain world-weary.)

I found what I had been searching for Apr 5, 2004
At the time I brought this book I was going through "HELL" because I didn't know what was going on in my life, Nothing was working out in my life I mean nothing no matter what I did it did not pan out, a friend told to get this book and when I started to read it the answer to what was going on started to make sense God was causing me to be BROKEN so that he could me for his service. You have to read the book for your self to see what I'am talking about. this could be your answer.
Practical theology of suffering Nov 18, 2002
This books is an excellent resource for those who are searching for purpose in suffering. Suffering takes on many forms, but all are intensely personal and difficult. There are probably few resources that address the subject with as much compassion and insight. I believe the author writes out of a combination of personal experience and biblical knowledge. Thus, this book serves to affirm those in the midst of suffering. In a "success oriented" society there is little room to explore and understand failure, brokeness, and pain. However, such conditions are more characteristic of the human dilemna than the "health, wealth and prosperity" we are told (by the mass media) we can all have if we just do it right. Thus, the need to address the issues of suffering are paramount. If you're reading this review, then you are guaranteed a degree of suffering at some point in your life - because that's part of life. It would be very beneficial to have this information and understanding before that time comes.
