Overview

Must we stumble through sorrow and tragedy without understanding or is there a lighted way--a path--through suffering? Elisabeth Elliot plots the treacherous passage through pain, grief, and loss a journey most of us will make many times in our life. Through it all, she says, there is only one reliable path, and if you walk it, you will see the transformation of all your losses, heartbreaks, and tragedies into something strong and purposeful. In this powerful moving book, Elisabeth Elliot does not hesitate to ask hard questions, to examine tenderly the hurts we suffer, and to explore boldly the nature of God whose sovereign care for us is so intimate and perfect that he confounds our finite understanding. A Path through Suffering is a book for anyone searching for faith, comfort, and assurance.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Elliot provides an excellent collection of meditations on the meaning of suffering for Christmas. Each of the 27 meditations and the appendix summarizing reasons for suffering, together with biblical verses supporting them, are designed to help the sufferer find both comfort and challenge. Elliot believes that suffering can be positive and transforming, but she is also realistic and rejects martyr complexes. Highly recommended for public and seminary libraries.

    Book

    The font on this book I purchased on my nook is so tiny I can't read it! It wont allow me to enlarge the font. Waste of money on such a good book.
