Fear, shame, loneliness...where can you turn when the pain is so deep it immobilizes you? Offering soothing insights based on MercyMe's #1 single, Millard and Farley take you to a place where your hurting heart meets its healer, your suffering is overcome by Jesus' glory, and your brokenness is made whole. 160 pages, softcover from Baker.
We all experience fear, shame, loneliness, broken homes, or broken hearts. We all hurt and need true, lasting healing. The trouble, according to bestselling author Andrew Farley and Bart Millard, lead singer of MercyMe, is that we don't know where to find it.
Inspired by MercyMe's #1 hit song of the same name, The Hurt & The Healer reveals exactly how God can be the gentle healer of all our hurts. Writing from the pain they've experienced in their lives, Millard and Farley reveal how their own struggles caused them to feel they had disappointed God. Through their biblical guidance, readers will see that God wants them to be open and honest about their pain. Only then can they discover how to exchange destructive thinking patterns for God's view of them and watch as God's perfect love casts away all their fears.
