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.

Excellent and profound. It gave me a brand new perspective on all types of suffering - little and big. I read this after experiencing stress-caused seizures & my life was turned upside-down. I am so thankful for this book helping merebuild my life, spiritually and physically. The only issue I had with the ebook were some typos throughout. Definitely worth reading & recommending.

During recent chronic illness in my life, this book proved to be an invaluable resource and friend. Elisabeth Elliott uses the writings and life of Lillias Trotter in this book. Lillias Trotter was way ahead of her time in spiritual thought and quite a courageous woman. I would highly, highly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling and to those who are not.

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.
