More a bible study than a book  Feb 8, 2007
We had listened to her interview on Family LIfe Radio and were really touched by that. So I was a bit disappointed to not have more of that feeling. The Bible study looked fine.
Holding On to Hope  Jan 3, 2007
I have read and reread this book 5 times in the past 6 months. If you have lost a child and believe in God, this is a wonderful book.
Offering a Hand to Fellow Sufferers  Oct 29, 2006
Nancy Guthrie understands pain. In Holding on to Hope: A Pathway through Suffering to the Heart of God, Guthrie leads readers through the dark abyss of pain into a place of hope and healing. In 1998, doctors diagnosed her newborn daughter, Hope, with Zellweger Syndrome, a rare congenital disorder that gave her less than six months to live. After Hope's death, Guthrie's husband had a vasectomy. Nevertheless, a year and a half later, she finds herself pregnant again. With only a 25 percent chance that this baby would be born with the disorder, Guthrie is hopeful. However, her hope is short-lived. Her son, Gabriel, also has Zellweger Syndrome and dies one day shy of six months.

With raw emotion and gut-wrenching honesty, Guthrie frames her story with the biblical book of Job, challenging readers to move beyond the question "Why?" Guthrie encourages readers to embrace their suffering. "Would you allow suffering to lead you to the very heart of God, a place where you can find the comfort and peace that you crave as well as the hope that has the power to transform your tomorrows?" She reminds readers that all suffering is meaningful. "If God has allowed suffering into your life, it is for a purpose. A good purpose. A holy purpose."

While claims like these might seem unbelievable, Guthrie's authenticity and genuineness throughout the book reveal that she did not reach her conclusions lightly. She has journeyed through the pain to the other side, where she has found hope. Eternal hope that is found in Christ alone. Through her pain, she extends her hand, inviting readers on a journey to the heart of God. "The truth is there is no comfort to be found away from God," she writes. Her painful experiences make her a trustworthy guide through the valley of suffering.

As someone who lives with the chronic pain and suffering wrought by Rheumatoid Arthritis, I appreciate Guthrie's conclusions, but even more so, her journey. She avoids trite sentimentality and pithy platitudes that attempt to cover raw, gaping wounds with a band-aid. Her book resonates with insights that come only through the furnace of affliction. Her words wrap their arms around you, offering warmth, comfort, and hope.

Guthrie is a writer with a lot to say. My only regret is that she failed to say more. While she addresses topics like tears and mourning and our tendency to blame God when we suffer, I would have liked a practical section added to her book, one that addresses the daily challenges those living with pain and suffering face, along with suggestions for how to navigate through the mundane daily chores we face during the healing process.

Guthrie's book is one of the best on this topic. Guthrie's bright faith shines through the dark clouds of adversity, offering warmth and light to those who journey with her on a pathway through suffering to the heart of God.
Amazing!  Apr 18, 2006
After our own daughter Madeline was born missing 1/2 her heart, my husband and I found ourselves thrown into a whole new world of children's hospitals, suffering and loss. And though our own little one is still with us we know that at any moment we may have to say good-bye. I found this book to be exceptional to hand out to other parents with sick children who are struggling with the path God has choosen for them. Her words are a blessing and a comfort and really hit home on how to deal with what life hands us. I would love to see this book in the library of every Ronald McDonald House!!!
A gentle and sensitive look at grief and grieving.  Mar 23, 2006
Since my 28 year old daughter died in an automobile crash I've been dealing with a tangle of emotions, fears, guilt and plain terror. This book puts all of that into the context of history (the universality of human suffering and loss) and hope (for our future with Jesus and our loved one in heaven). 'Why' - suffering? is not the issue. 'Why' shouldn't I suffer when millions have for thousands of years is a more realistic approach. This book helps to untangle everything that comes along with grief in a truly Biblical way.
