Review by Library Journal (2011-01-01)

Prolific author/Bible teacher Arthur (cofounder, Precept Ministries International) here focuses on how to heal oneself of deep emotional hurt. As in Arthur's previous works, the content is presented in a manner reminiscent of a conversation with a trusted friend. Relying heavily on Scripture, Arthur addresses why pain happens, how to find purpose in one's life during difficult times, and how to move on. Arthur herself narrates, bringing the feel of a genuine connection with the listener. A bonus study guide on the last CD is a helpful tool for eliciting further reflection and discussion. Recommended where Arthur's previous books and/or Joyce Meyer's works are popular.

Book description

At some point in life, every one of us will face the dark pain of heartache and despair, a hurt that pierces so deep we're left gasping with questions: Why me? What have I done to deserve this? How can God just stand by and let this happen? Writing from insights she has gained, not only through her own valleys of deep hurt but also from years of study and counseling others through their pain, Kay Arthur points the way toward genuine healing. With candor, grace, and vulnerability, she invites you to join her on a journey toward wholeness as you exchange your fears and frustrations, hurts and disappointments for a hope that will never disappoint.
