I can very much recommend this book. It is a very precious book. It has encouraged me and has deepened my faith to the One who carries us through all our, loss, pain and suffering: Jesus Christ. I have read many times the book of Job, which was always helpful for me in a process of pain - bringing understanding and healing. I am very thankful.

HASH(0x8b73e7e0) out of 5 stars Beautifully Explains Why God Allows Suffering In Our Lives 5 Nov. 2002
By SenorNikonMan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I bought a copy of this book yesterday afternoon at my local Christian bookstore to give to my niece whose unborn baby has been diagnosed with a chromosomal condition which as her doctor puts it, is not conducive to life. Even though I knew this book was written with people who have already had a loss in their lives in mind and my niece's baby is still alive in her womb, I thought that it might be something to help her and her husband better understand why God allows suffering in believers' lives.
Before giving it to my niece however, I decided to read it myself to make sure it was appropriate and that it conveyed what I believe and feel. Once I started reading it, I couldn't stop and I read it all the way through.
I have just mailed the copy I bought yesterday to my niece and I have just ordered three more copies from Amazon. One is for myself, which I plan to read again and then lend out to family and friends, and two are to have available as gifts.
While reading this book will be of comfort to anyone experiencing a tragedy in their life, it can be very helpful to friends and family members of this person as well. So many times we want to be there for someone in pain, but we are afraid to upset them even more by either saying or doing the wrong thing. Since this book is written from the perspective of someone who has survived a tragic loss in their life, the reader gains insight into what the author found to be the most comforting and the most hurtful things said and done by others during her grieving period.
Therefore I highly recommend this book not only to anyone who may be experiencing a tragic loss in their life, but also to the friends and loved ones of such a person.

HASH(0x8b71abe8) out of 5 stars This book offered incredible comfort and understanding 23 Mar. 2003
By Lisa - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I read this book only weeks after losing my son due to a stillbirth. His heart stopped beating only 1 day before he was to be born. This book gave me so much comfort, hope and understanding during those very difficult days when I was in shock and disbelief. The author relates one's loss and hurt to the experiences of Job in such an incredible and practical way. She devotes chapters to understanding despair, blame, and the question of "why did this happen?" to name a few. This was by far the most helpful and comforting book I have read to help me get through the grief process. It gave me hope and strength, amd helped me to understand that God has a divine plan, even during our times of suffering. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone experiencing the loss of a child, or any loved one.

HASH(0x8db3ac30) out of 5 stars Holding on to Hope by Nancy Guthrie 20 Sept. 2002
By SadieW - Published on
Format: Hardcover
While in a bookstore searching for this book I was told that it could be found in the "Grief" section. Considering that the Guthries have lost two children, this would be a logical place for the book. After reading Holding on to Hope (and hearing Nancy Guthrie speak), I find this book to be more than worthy of placement in a "Life/Living" category as well.
In telling their story of the death of two of their children (primarily written about their daughter, Hope), Guthrie draws from the book of Job in the Bible and Job's reaction to his suffering, loss, and healing.
Her style is down to earth and honest. Her faith is strengthened rather than weakened through her loss. She directs her writing to any one who has suffered a loss....of a marriage, a job, a dream, a diagnosis that is not wanted, or, like the Guthries, the loss of someone dear. How appropriate that her daughter's name (given before they knew of the child's condition) is Hope. Guthrie and her husband hold on to a divine hope as they let go of their tiny daughter. Nancy Guthrie makes no quick-fix, easy answer promises to pain and loss. She very openly stands on her faith in God and focuses on His purposes rather than man's purposes. Through her writing shines an incredible treasure about the joy of life in spite of sadness and pain in life.
This is a book that is a short one, but it is one that likely to be read more than once. Its truths are solid. This is a book to be shared.

HASH(0x8b65fac8) out of 5 stars WHAT AN INSPIRATION! 19 July 2005
By Margie Everett - Published on
Format: Paperback
I thank Ms. Guthrie for writing this book as it has helped me alot since the death of my 20 yr. old daughter on Oct. 29, 2004. This precious child went Home to be with God after a tragic automobile accident and I cannot describe the grief and pain that I have felt since she left. This book deals with the pain that only a parent who loses a child of any child can identify with. Although my grief is great, I rejoice in the fact that I will be reunited with her in heaven one day. Thank you for writing such a legacy to your own heavenly babies and for helping other parents who are members of "the club no parent wants to join." My real name is Margie Everett and I live in Preston, GA. My daughter's name is Rose Ann Everett and she now lives with God and all the saints of heaven!

Format: Hardcover
Sooner or later all of us will face grief, loss, dissapointment. Nancy Guthrie offers us the same comfort she has found in looking to God for meaning in what appears to be senseless tragedy. This is a book to read in small bits and pieces. Yes, it may bring tears, but tears of healing for broken hearts. This book lives up to its title, and does inspire hope and a sense of purpose - even in pain. While written from a Christian perspective, anyone who believes in a mindful God with a larger plan than this life, will find comfort.
