From the Back Cover
Winner of the Gold Medallion Award and an inspirational best-seller for over twenty years, Where is God When it Hurts? Has been revised and updated by the author to explore the many important issues that have arisen during that time. Sensitive and caring, this unique book discusses pain--physical, emotional, and spiritual--and helps us understand why we suffer from it and how to cope with our own and that of others. Using examples from the Bible as well as the author's personal experiences, this expanded edition speaks to everyone for whom life sometimes doesn't make sense. Philip Yancey can help us discover how to reach out to someone in pain even when we don't know what to say. It shows us how we can learn to accept without blame, anger, or fear that which we cannot understand.

He starts by explaining how pain as a response in the human body is actually useful. He then turns to look at what happens when the pain system doesn't function properly with a few very moving case studies. Finally he adds some very useful and practical tips for dealing with pain (either for yourself or to help others).
Along the way we learn that it wasn't part of God's original plan for his people to be in pain. There won't be any bad pain in heaven (yeah!)
This book is both practical and spiritual. Excellent for those in pain / suffering illness or those who know people who are.
This is a book to keep and to ponder. The research is deep. For instance he spent a year talking to a self-help group of dying people. He also gives real life examples of many people who hurt.
The book begins with a treatise on why pain is necessary and can even be regarded as good. He then goes on to talk about pain in general - both physical and emotional.
This is a book for all who are hurting and those who have to live with them. It helped my wife and I greatly.

I have been through times of suffering in my life.
I know people who suffer and have pain in their lives.
I am also a Christian.
Everything Philip Yancy has to say in this book speaks to me.
If you have one of the four things above, this book will also speak to you.
The only reason I didn't give this book five stars is because it is obviously dated in some parts. I would not say that this really impacts on the message and guidance within it.....
If you've got as far as reading this review whilst trying to decide if you should read this book then I think you should read it!
The content is illuminating AND THE ANALYSIS IS uniquely Yancey's with penetrating comments and insights.
A helpful and challenging read as one would expect from Yancey.
It's good to have the Kindle copy, as I really like adding notes to look back on later.
