When his son died of a rare genetic disorder, David B. Biebel heard the well-meaning advice of his friends and family, but still struggled with one question: why? Why did this happen and why is speaking the truth about pain and suffering so hard? In this powerful book, Biebel leaves behind the typical but ineffective words of comfort and instead offers the unvarnished truth about illness, death, divorce, financial ruin, and more. His Christian perspective, real life examples, and keen insight will help readers sort through their pain and see the value in their trials. Through it all they'll discover that God is more loving, understanding, and forgiving than they could ever imagine.

When our oldest daughter died, my husband bought this book for me. I read it, reread it, and read it some more. Since then, I have bought it for others who also have had a deep pain in their lives. While the title at first seemed (to me) irreverent, the book itself is not. It is a deeply moving book that deals with the struggles a person goes through in times of great loss. The author himself has gone through such a time. I highly recommend this book for such people, family, and friends who wish to understand how to help.

When I started reading this book, it was as if the author was able to copy my every thought and emotion. And yes there is no end to this journey, but we do have choices to make which will impact life here and eternity.

This is a good book and I enjoy being able to have it on my kindle fire also. I do have a hard copy also, but find it easy to just take my kindle with me wherever I go and pick the book I want to read.

I would not recommend this book to anybody. It was a waste of money and a total disappointment for me.

This is a book written from the heart of a man who has suffered and desires to share what he has learned, giving hope to others.

Pastor Biebel and his wife lost their three year old son to an undiagnosed condition. He shares his pain, grieving, and his depression. They had another son a year later but then he came down with what was probably the same extremely rare disease.

But this is not a depressing book. It is full of encouragement. His message is that, as he made it through the pain, so will readers. He takes us through the stages one goes through, drawing from his journal and his correspondence with others. He describes the process as a spiral. Emotions may be revisited again and again. He writes of disintegration, reintegration, and then authentic living.

Biebel asks his readers to take a risk – to believe that God is more loving, understanding, and forgiving that we ever imagined. He reminds us that a crisis is both a danger and an opportunity. Much of how we emerge from a painful experience depends on our view. Faith is essential but he does note that first that faith will generate many questions before it provides the ultimate comfort. It will get harder before it gets easier. “The good news is,” he writes, “that walking with him by faith remains the only way to transform your pain into anything other than pain.”

Biebel encourages readers, reminding us that we know the love of God in a special way through suffering. Perhaps, he says, the only way to really learn about the love of God is through pain. He encourages us to let Jesus in our pain, helping us to see beyond now to eternity, “...transforming your chaos into coherence through his presence in the center.” But it will take time as the journey is long.

This is a book written from the heart of a man who has gone through the pain of loss. It is full of information on the journey with encouragement along the path. I highly recommend it.

I received a complimentary digital copy of this book through the Book Club Network for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
Speaking with the voice of one who has been there, David Biebel describes the pain of loss or hardship, analyzes it in depth, then suggests how we might use the pain to move onto better things. He explains the often difficult to perceive concept of how pain and suffering can add strength to our character and deepen our spiritual walk. He also goes into the cause of suffering. Does God bring it about or only allow it? How does He use it in our lives and the lives of those we come in contact with? Do all things truly work for good?

After losing my son a few years ago at the young age of 24, I can identify with the conflicting emotions associated with feeling our hurt, ‘getting over it’ from a worldview standpoint and moving into a closer relationship with our Heavenly Father. I especially enjoyed Mr. Biebel’s poetry sprinkled throughout the book and his premise that suffering can stimulate our creativity. I have experienced this firsthand.

This book is a gentle reminder that God is still the God of miracles and blessings, taking the focus off our pain. We are loved and cherished by our Creator to the point where He gave His son to be the atonement for our sin. Heavenly joy can be ours, even in the face of suffering.

Thank you Mr. Biebel, for baring your heart and pain to help others struggling with the injuries life wields and pointing the way to a kind and loving Heavenly Father. I plan to buy copies of this book to share with friends I know can benefit from his wise and perceptive words.
