This book is so helpful for anyone struggling through a hard time in life. The chapters chronicle Job's struggle and Guthrie's struggle with losing two children to a genetic disorder. This was given to me after my daughter died from a genetic problem, and it really helped me through the difficult journey of grief. I would highly recommend it to anyone dealing with a painful situation.
I have been SO ABUNDANTLY BLESSED by this simple little book. Short, easy chapters that parallel the Guthrie's journey with the life of Job. I've reread my copy at least 8 times since God led me to the book in 2002. Each time for a different journey in my life, God brings out encouragement and strength from Nancy's book to life me up and give me hope. I've given so many copies of this book away over the years as a "greeting card" of encouragement for people in their own struggles. So thankful for this beautifully simple and encouraging word.
Only God could orchestrate such events. And only God could give the Guthrie family the faith and courage to live them. May He use this story to strengthen us all.
This book will touch your emotions and inspire your mind in an unforgettable way. Seldom will you read anything with such candor and insight, probing one of life’s toughest questions.
Guthrie tells of Hope’s brief life with raw emotion, but never resorts to cloying sentimen-tality.
