Long-term suffering is daunting. Whether we're the one in pain, or the one providing comfort, the road is challenging and arduous.
Author, pastor, father, and husband Dave Furman knows this from personal experience. In his book, Being There: How to Love Those Who Are Hurting, he candidly shares his experience of suffering from chronic pain and the inability to use his hands and arms.
Not only writing from his own perspective, Furman shares the difficulties of caregivers who suffer alongside those they care for. Being There acknowledges that those beside the hurting suffer too, often in sacrificial silence, as they struggle through their own bouts of depression and exhaustion. Dave, and his wife Gloria, who contributes a letter at the end of the book, provide practical advice for finding light at the end of the tunnel by resting solely in the power of the cross.
Being There provides a behind-the-scenes look at what to do, and what not to do, on the road to contentment through long-term suffering.
