Item description for Hurt People Hurt People: Hope and Healing for Yourself and Your Relationships by Sandra D. Wilson...
Overview The angry pain we fell when we are victimized by the selfishness of others is an inevitable part of the human condition. How we react to those injustices can make all the difference in our hearts and lives. Here is biblical guidance for overcoming our own hurts and arresting the vicious cycle that causes us to hurt others. Author Dr. Sandra Wilson helps us understand the pain in our past and the ways we continue the cycle. Then she shows us how hurtful patterns can be broken only through the power and love of Jesus--the Healer of all hurts.
Do you know someone perhaps even a Christian who seems impossible to get along with? From the people in the pews to the members of our families, we are surrounded by people who hurt other people. And they do so, the author tells us, because of the seemingly inescapable pain in their own lives. In this book, Dr. Wilson brings her years as a professional counselor to bear on a difficult topic that affects many of us. Let her warmth and insight lead you toward a heart of compassion and a ministry of healing for those who hurt others.

Worth reading. Apr 28, 2008
This is an excellent book. A must read at least once and perhaps many times over.
emotional and spiritual hurts Mar 5, 2008
Reviewed by Debra Gaynor for ReviewYourBook.com, 3/08 The title of this book says it all, Hurt People Hurt People. People who have been hurt do tend to hurt others, sometimes knowingly and sometimes unknowingly. As I read this book, I kept thinking about people that have been sexually abused and the proven fact that most abusers were abused. "Hurt people commonly use anger to disguise and deflect their guilt and grief." We have all been hurt in some way in our life. Hurt People Hurt People deals with the emotional and spiritual hurts that scar people. I could relate to many of the statements in chapter three "Hurt by the Unprepared and Unavailable." Sandra D. Wilson writes in a simple easy-to-understand manner; she uses wit and wisdom to impart her message, offering hope and understanding. The healing that hurt people need may not happen overnight; it takes years for the hurts to heal, and only Jesus Christ can heal them.
ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I'LL EVER REFER Jan 28, 2008
If you are looking into human behavior and the "why's", this is an excellent book. Gave one to my best friend who is a counselor working with abused and neglected children and with families whose children are in foster care, and she can't order enough copies for her adult cients. Like me, she feels this is one of the best books available for understanding ourselves and others. I read and re-read it, finding myself, my family members, and my friends (but mostly myself) all through this book. Great insights for the lay person.
Excellent Book; Very Insightful and Helpful Jan 25, 2008
