Book Review

Finding Purpose Beyond Our Pain

Pain is gain! Sound like a Physical fitness regime? Sure it does, but this author is talking about your emotional fitness regime. Two medical Doctors take you on a tour of the seven “inevitables” that will touch everyone’s life at some point and then offer a biblical alternative to what is the “norm” in today’s counseling circles.

Written in an easy-to-read format, each chapter can stand alone as an individual study so that you can quickly and easily access the parts that deal with your particular questions of the moment, then go back later to read the book in it’s entirety if you like.
Dr.’s Meir and Henderson have brought together years of experience in psychiatry, medicine, biblical counseling, and teaching, to pen a book that weaves God’s solutions into your everyday problems and difficulties- giving you an understanding to the age-old question: “Why is this happening to me, and what do I do about it?” A few of the topics are: Life’s injustices, rejection, loss, discipline, death. The answers they lead you to just may surprise you.
I recommend this book to you if you are seriously looking for help and comfort in your time of trials, or are trying to help another through theirs. To be fore-warned is to be fore-armed.
