People suffering with pain, depression, or loss will be pressed in ways they've never experienced before. And in the difficulty of their distress, sin will show itself, perhaps even in ways its not shown itself before! In turn, loved ones will be greatly in need of faithful friends committed to the well-being of their souls.
In his book, Being There: How to Love Those Who Are Hurting, author, pastor, father, and husband Dave Furman writes candidly from his own personal experience with suffering after permanently losing the use of his arms and hands.
Taking readers through the gamut of emotions that accompany this kind of long-term despair, Furman describes his own journey and how he ultimately found peace and acceptance by resting entirely in Christ.
Rich with help for both those who are suffering, and for those helping someone who is suffering, Being There is full of practical advice -- not only from the perspective of what to do, but also from the very helpful perspective of what not to do!
