Jerry Sittser has experienced PAIN! He plugs his experience into all types of pain possible to experience. We have experienced catastrophic pain but have friends who are under going pain from being locked up for a time and losing employment along with any sense of identify. This book deals with it all in a very helpful, compassionate manner. I highly recommend this book. It does not compare anyone's pain but regards each one's pain as being the worst because it is what is being dealt with at the time. This book would be helpful to anyone; keeps anyone aware and sensitive to the painful experiences of life.
This book was instrumental in providing the strength and encouragement I needed to walk through a most difficult time in my life --the loss of my husband of 27.5 years. Therefore, I purchased the book for friends who recently experienced a series of losses, as I felt it would do the same for them. Shirley Woods
