Holding onto Hope by Nancy Guthrie

Holding Onto Hope: Nancy Guthrie This touching, true-story of one women's walk through the loss of a child, will have you weeping and rejoicing as you follow in her footsteps.  I adore the power of narrative to draw in the reader, deepen understanding and grow compassion. This book does all of that while uplifting the name of God. The first of many for Nancy Guthrie this books strength is it's simple honesty. Nancy shares from the heart, her journey through doubt, anger, pain, heartache and back to a stronger, deeper faith in God.  This book is best read by the person who's is new to anguish and simply wants to hear they aren't alone or someone who wants to understand a loved one's pain better.

My verdict: 3.5 out of 5

Book Description from Tyndale Publications:
Framing her own story of staggering loss and soaring hope with the biblical story of Job, Nancy Guthrie takes her fellow sufferers by the hand and guides them on a pathway through pain—straight to the heart of God. Holding on to Hope offers an uplifting perspective, not only for those experiencing monumental loss, but for anyone going through difficulty and failure. Includes a study section for readers who want to dig deeper into what the Bible says about dealing with suffering and grief. Additional sections include a Foreword by Anne Graham Lotz and a Resource section linking Scriptures with each chapter's lesson.

Seldom will you read anything with such candor and insight, probing one of life's toughest questions: How can grief be a friend along life's journey?” —Ravi Zacharias
