Joni Eareckson Tada knows something about hopelessness and suffering. She has been paralyzed from the neck down for most of her life. But through the grief of her life-changing injury, she has learned what hope is all about. In this brief but poignant book, she explores the divine reason for suffering, the hope that the sufferer can claim, and where that hope should be placed. Like Joni, you will learn that hope is the best of things when you give it a chance. This book was originally a chapter in John Piper's book Suffering and the Sovereignty of God.

I gave this booklet to my sister who is taking some college classes. She is a working mom too so she doesn't have the time for a big long book on hope, but she needs some hope and if Joni Eareckson Tada could find it in a hospital bed, Lord willing, I 'hope' my sister will also.

This little booklet is a gem! It is the perfect gift to give to someone who is depressed over any number of things. For the price of a greeting card you can give a hurting someone this little book packed full of Joni's keen insights to maintaining one's joy in times of suffering. I cannot recommend it highly enough. I think every church should have these booklets on hand...excellent gifts for patients in the hospital. I'd give it 10 stars if I could.
