Customer Reviews for Being Well When We're Ill: Wholeness and Hope in Spite of Infirmity
Review 1 for Being Well When We're Ill: Wholeness and Hope in Spite of Infirmity
Date:March 14, 2010
This book is a masterpiece, and has tremendous value for all, even if we don't have serious health issues. We all have ailments from time to time. While acknowledging our limitations, Marva Dawn guides us to see how dearly God loves us, provides for us, and sustains us, and inspires us to use whatever we have for His service. I kept thinking of others with whom I want to share the book to encourage them in their struggles. A real faith-booster!

Review 2 for Being Well When We're Ill: Wholeness and Hope in Spite of Infirmity
Date:July 9, 2008
Learning to exhibit---and extend---grace when you flat-out don't feel good is more than difficult. And often the last thing you really want to do. Marva Dawn's resource is just the support you need to get moving again! She writes from theological soundness and personal experience---and angst. Not a book to read all in one sitting. Thought-provoking, intellectually stimulating, and hope inducing. Highly recommended! Get several because you'll want to share.
