Everyone has friends or family who suffer from sickness, disability, depression, or the death of a loved one. Often, the people who love the hurting also struggle in their own unique ways, suffering in silence and without much support from others.
Writing from the unique perspective of one who needs extra help on a daily basis, Dave Furman offers insight into the support, encouragement, and wisdom that people need when helping others. He draws on his own life experiences, examples from the Bible, and wisdom from Christians throughout history. Deeply personal and powerfully pastoral, this book points readers to the strength that only God can provide as they love those who are hurting.
"So much of the Christian life is a matter of simply being there - for those who are hurting. For many years Dave Furman has faithfully modeled being there for others while he himself has benefited from those who have been there for him. This gives him a unique perspective and wisdom in crafting a book about helping the hurting."? - Tim Challies, Blogger, Challies.com
