Tyndale House Holding On To Hope: A Pathway Through Suffering to the Heart of God

Shunning platitudes and easy answers, Guthrie deals head-on with the issues experienced by those going through suffering and loss. Drawing upon the biblical story of Job and the experience of losing her infant daughter Hope, Nancy takes her fellow sufferers by the hand and guides them on a pathway through pain---straight to the heart of God. Holding On To Hope offers an uplifting perspective, not only for those experiencing monumental loss but also for anyone going through difficulty and failure. Guthrie's story of losing her daughter is woven beautifully throughout, adding richness and credibility to her words. Includes study guide for individual or small group use.

Nancy Guthrie provides an intimate look at her journey through grieving the loss of her baby daughter (and the impending loss of her preborn son). The book provides enough personal information for the reader to empathize and relate, but not so much as to overwhelm the reader's own experience. In grieving the sudden loss of my dear father, I found this to be so very helpful and hopeful. Nancy's viewpoints are not opinion-based but are founded on the Bible. This is a quick read - perfect for someone looking for grace and truth from another who has endured a painful loss.

As someone who has been through deep grief over the death of an infant, I found this book very encouraging and reassuring due to her use of Scripture and keeping our focus on God and His care for us as we walk thru the valley of grief. God's comfort is real no matter what our pain.

I have seven children and lost one of them at the age of 17 months old. This book was the best resource that I have read so far on trials and holding onto God through them. This book is not just for someone who has lost a child, but would be helpful in many trials. It is well worth the money spent. Highly recommend it! I bought seven extra copies to give to people.

Years after reading this book, the hope I gained continues to strengthen me. I picked this up when my own father was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Since then I've given it to others after the death of their loved ones. Nancy's words and thoughts speak to everyone, giving hope, finding gratitude even in loss.

Awesome Book! I couldn't put it down and then I re-read it several times. Nancy describes her raw and real emotions and gives you the opportunity and sets a tone and perspective that helps you glorify God during your suffering and trials. Nancy's book helped me do what I wanted to do during my time of difficulty & pain but didn't know how until I read this book. Matter of fact I always have several copies of this book in my car & when I see someone in need or suffering this is the first tool I reach for!
