In this paradigm-shifting book, Nancy Guthrie gently invites readers to lean in along with her to hear Jesus speak understanding and insight into the lingering questions we all have about the hurts of life: What was God’s involvement in this, and why did he let it happen? Why hasn’t God answered my prayers for a miracle? Can I expect God to protect me? Does God even care? According to Nancy, this questioning is not a bad thing at all but instead an opportunity. It’s a chance to hear with fresh ears the truth in the promises of the gospel we may have misapplied. It lets us retune our souls to the purposes of God we may have misunderstood.

"The Word of God has the answers, and that is exactly where Nancy Guthrie, a woman acquainted with sorrow, takes us. If you will let Nancy take you by the hand, lead you where she has been, share with you truth that never changes, and cry, 'Heal me, O Lord' (Jeremiah 17:14), you will find yourself hearing Jesus speak into your sorrow . . . and there you will find healing."--Kay Arthur, co-CEO of Precept Ministries International My first book from the Tyndale Media Center is "Hearing Jesus Speak into Your Sorrow" by Nancy Guthrie. Guthrie's book is a touching account of how a mother suffered the loss of an infant son and daughter, and learned to cope with the pain and suffering that we all hope we never have to encounter. She does so remarkably well, by searching the scriptures for answers; she uses eleven statements that Jesus Christ spoke about in the New Testament. I am an avid reader of obituaries and I came across the most touching obituaries this past week of a mother and her ten year old son that were fighting against cancer and they died just two days apart. We can ask ourselves, "Why would God allow this horrible thing to happen?" I mean it's heart breaking to think of all the pain they are going through, even though they are now set free and safe in the arms of Jesus. "When you face the death of someone you love, you don't have to surrender that person to an unknown, uncaring nothingness." This is just one example of what many of us deal with each day of our lives. The sadness of a loved one or friend that is in pain. the loss of a family member or friend, etc. The list goes on and on. Let Nancy share with you the revelations that she found while searching the scriptures to help us understand that we are not alone and that Jesus does still speak to us today. Are you struggling with unanswered questions? Won't you listen to Jesus speak? Review by Janet Carter
