Excellent book for anyone going through a loss or time of grief - from Christian perspective. Beautiful pictures and layout.
Solid biblical teaching on understanding suffering Jan 31, 2006
I read this book 25 years ago, yet the truth rings the same today. I was very depressed at the time and didn't understand what was going on in my Christian life. How could I as a Christian be suffering with depression? Then I read this book, which used II Corithians 1:3-10 as it's basis, and found that the Apostle Paul stated he dispaired even of life. It states, how God is the God of all comfort. So if Paul the Apostle was dispairing of life and looked to the God of all comfort for help, then so should I. Dr. Swindoll goes into much greater detail, and does a very good job of driving the truth home. It helped me tremendously, know that God doesn't look down on us in our struggles, but has compassion. I highly recommend this book. I reference it in my suicide prevention website, (www.bungechord.com/suicide),and a link to purchase it, at this site.com of course. If you are stuggling with depression and/or in pain, this is a book for you.
Wonderful book May 3, 2002
I love this book! I have given copies to many people I know when they are going through something difficult in their lives and I don't have the right words of comfort for them. This book helps to make sense of why we go through some of the things we do in life. I first read it 20 years ago and it helped me through a very difficult time in my life. Everyone should read this book!
One of the best books available on the subject Aug 3, 1999
This book is (especially considering its brevity) one of the finest treatments of suffering available. It is sensitive, Biblical,and perfectly suited to pass on to anyone that is going through a difficult time. I highly recommend it.
