JLewisChambersburg, PAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Sensitive and ReadableOctober 6, 2011JLewisChambersburg, PAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"when the bottom drops out" by Robert Bugh is one of the best books I've read in a long time. I received this book as a complimentary copy for review from Tyndale House. In his book, Robert succinctly lays out the basic Scriptural truths that held him fast during the year that he lost and his wife and his best friend. Using their deaths as the canvas for showcasing God's glory, Robert sensitively leads the reader through the pain of grief to the comfort and joy found in a right understanding of Who God is. His book is theologically accurate, while not overly weighty. The average Christian reader could read this book and be riveted, strengthened, and taught. I've read other books on God's sovereignty and human suffering and haven't found one to be as balanced and readable as Bugh's "when the bottom drops out. "
The timing of this book in my life couldn't be more fitting. My family is going through a season of loss right now, and the truths of Bugh's book resonate to the core. I find myself thinking on the principles Bugh shares along with his illustrations which range from Old Testament examples to modern-day Christians who face suffering with grace. I also appreciated the tips Pastor Bugh shares about helping others through their grief. His insight and experience combine to provide guidance to the hurting as well as to those who walk alongside the grieving. Complete with a discussion guide at the end, when the bottom drops out is a must-read for all who hurt and all who hurt with those who hurt.

It's just a fact of life. No one is immune. Often times, we face such horrible moments, that it feels like the bottom totally drops out of our life and we're not only devastated, but left floundering for answers. Everyone reacts to these times in different ways.
I was so able to relate to Pastor Robert Bugh's book, as I myself have had the bottom fall out of my life. I lost my husband, unexpectedly, just days after our daughter was born. I lost my dad to cancer within 9 weeks of his diagnosis. And just recently, lost my best friend to melanoma - a deadly skin cancer. The most devastating loss, was of course, that of my husband...that's when the bottom fell out from my life. I floundered, questioned, feared, raged...and eventually found amazing grace, love, comfort, and a strong, deep relationship with God.
When the Bottom Drops Out chronicles Robert Bugh's journey from loss to restoration. It shows readers how to find and hold tightly to Christ through even the most painful episodes of life. Bugh's story is proof positive that while pain and disappointment are an unavoidable part of life, God is nonetheless faithful, holding us close at all times and in all circumstances.
I thank Tyndale House Publishers for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review..
