Publisher's Description

Where Can You Turn for Hope
When the Hurt Runs Deep?

 
At some point in life, every one of us will face the dark pain of heartache and despair, a hurt that pierces so deep we’re left gasping with questions:
 
Why me? Why now?
 
What have I done to deserve this?
 
Will the pain ever go away?
 
How can God just stand by and let this happen?
 
What do I have left to hope for?
 
 
Writing from insights she has gained, not only through her own valleys of deep hurt but also from years of study and counseling others through their pain, Kay Arthur points the way toward genuine healing. With candor, grace, and vulnerability, she invites you to join her on a journey toward wholeness as you exchange your fears and frustrations, hurts and disappointments for a hope that will never disappoint.

Editorial Reviews

"A book with this much healing truth could only be written by someone who has experienced profound pain. In When the Hurt Runs Deep, Kay Arthur addresses universal questions about suffering and pain with insights that are candid, practical, and deeply hopeful, offering encouragement and assurance that you are not alone."
—Gary Smalley, author of Change Your Heart, Change Your Life

"Kay Arthur’s When the Hurt Runs Deep is a beautiful blend of grace and truth. It’s clear, compassionate, biblically grounded, and Christ-centered. As usual, Kay’s words honor and declare God’s Word, which alone can bear the weight of our trust. I’m happy to recommend this outstanding book."
—Randy Alcorn, author of If God Is Good and The Goodness of God

"Kay Arthur is no ’dry land sailor,’ no stranger to deep hurt and pain. In the midst of her own dark seasons and desperate moments, she has mined the Scripture and found rich treasures of healing and hope. This book provides encouragement for those who need assurance that God is near to the brokenhearted, that He hears their cry, and that their journey through pain can truly lead to a place of great blessing, joy, and increased fruitfulness."
—Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author and radio host of Revive Our Hearts

"You won’t be able to put this remarkable book down! Kay Arthur has crafted an invaluable gift for everyone who is seeking healing and hope in the midst of life’s tormenting windstorms—and that’s all of us. With deep insight and profound reassurance, Kay shows us how to connect our deep pain with the ultimate promise of God’s therapeutic love."
—Les Parrott, PhD, founder of RealRelationships.com and coauthor of You’re Stronger Than You Think

"Kay Arthur knows about emotional pain first hand, both from her own life and from the scores of people she has counseled over the years. Now she brings her vast knowledge of Scripture to bear on this difficult subject in a compassionate and helpful way. Both people who are hurting and all those who counsel such people will find this book useful."
—Jerry Bridges, author of Trusting God Even When Life Hurts

"I’m not sure I know of anyone more equipped in God’s Word and life experience to write this incredible book. I’ve had a first-hand look at how Kay Arthur has allowed God’s truth to guide her through life’s deepest hurts. She’s no stranger to unexpected and hurtful circumstances, and—good thing for us—she’s also no stranger to Scripture. Your journey through this remarkable book will equip and encourage you to trust in the Lord no matter what life brings your way. Read and be blessed."
—Priscilla Shirer, author and Bible teacher

"Kay Arthur understands the heartache and pain that life often brings. But more important, she has tasted the healing and freedom—spiritual freedom—that only intimacy with God can bring. This rich work, When the Hurt Runs Deep, will guide you to your strong anchor of hope when the storms of life threaten to overwhelm you, and you too will find healing and freedom."
—Dr. Tim Clinton, president of the American Association of Christian Counselors

"How easily we forget that we have a written guarantee in Scripture that we will have tribulation in our lives—not only the cosmic, earth-shaking kind that comes with a 9/11 tragedy, but also the kind that rocks our lives personally when the diagnosis is not good, or the husband walks out, or the job is lost. Yet in the midst of all the turbulence stands the Prince of peace, knowing our pain, feeling our hurt, comforting us in our doubt. Kay Arthur, a woman who loves God’s Word, takes us back to the source of true hope and ultimate healing. Be comforted as you read her words to know that, even when hurt runs deep, He is there with His deeper love."
—Janet Parshall, nationally syndicated radio host and author

"Kay Arthur is one of the most gifted teachers in the kingdom. This book is filled with wisdom she’s gained from teaching and from her in-depth study of Scripture. What a treasure it contains!"
—Chuck Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview

"Kay Arthur is a great friend and an even better human being. Her teaching, speaking, and writing have touched millions globally. When the Hurt Runs Deep is another great investment in the people she loves. This is a profound book because Kay has ’been there’ and has learned to walk by faith through some very dark valleys. Journey with her as you read these pages, and I can promise you she’ll put your hand in the hand of the One who will bring true healing and hope. This is a great book. Read it and then pass it on to a friend."
—Dr. Dennis Rainey, president of FamilyLife

"When the Hurt Runs Deep offers healing at the point of your deepest pain and brings hope that one day your suffering will be redeemed in ways you cannot imagine. With wise insights born of personal experience and timeless truth, my friend Kay Arthur offers encouragement and abiding assurance that you are not alone!"
—June Hunt, founder of Hope for the Heart and author of How to Handle Your Emotions

    The author has used her personal experiences and knowledge of the Bible to provide useful commentary to help the reader navigate the hurts of life. I and a group of individual are using this book as a weekly study. The experience of going through this book will hopefully help me and at the same time help others.

    When The Hurt Runs Deep is a challenging yet wonderful book full of so many truths and helpful insights. I love that this book is full of scripture to back up the information that is given. The crux of the whole book is to recognize that God is sovereign and He is who He says He is. Ms. Arthur does a great job giving us example after real life example of people who have experienced true pain in their lives and the resulting glory that is given to God. I think this book is a valuable resource and could very well help someone who is having a problem seeing God beyond all the pain in their lives. I enjoy that she recognizes in the book that you may be ready to throw the book across the room but just keep reading, it will be worth it. This is a book that is very well worth it!

    I received this book from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my review.

    I loved that this was another journey through God's Word, pointing us to our Father and Comforter to heal our hurt. Mrs. Arthur is so good about getting you in the Word to deal with our problems.

    I did feel that it was much of a repeat of some of her other books I had read, like As Silver Refined and Lord Heal My Hurt, with even some of the same illustrations, except I feel those books addressed the subject even better than this one.

    I woudl recommend this book, if you have never read any other Kay Arthur books, but if you could get your hand son Lord Heal My Hurt, or As Silver Refined, those would be even better.

    I received this book as part of the Multnomah Press Blogging for Books program. I am under no obligation, nor do I receive any recompense for, a positive review.

    I have not read through the book all the way as of yet, but what I have read is very helpful. I've lost people in my life and that kind of hurt does run deep. Also dealing with anything in your life where you are hurt in some way, this book will help you.
