Elisabeth Elliot plots the treacherous passage through pain, grief, and loss, a journey most of us will make many times in our life. Through it all, she says, there is only one reliable path, and if you walk it, you will see the transformation of all your losses, heartbreaks, and tragedies into something strong and purposeful. In this powerful book, Elisabeth Elliot does not hesitate to ask hard questions, to examine tenderly the hurts we suffer, and to explore boldly the nature of God whose sovereign care for us is so intimate and perfect that he confounds our finite understanding. A Path through Suffering is a book for anyone searching for faith, comfort, and assurance.

Elisabeth Elliot avoids dry, dusty theological defenses of God in our suffering. Instead, she provides a clear path to a sincere and trusting heart which feels real heartbreak and tragedy yet praises God in all things.
Suffering can sometimes entangle and impede a Christian’s progress toward hope and confidence in God’s design. But that’s not the way God intended it. Elisabeth, with keen insight and authority, clears a path through the doubts and questions to help every reader find his confidence in God’s design. I recommend it highly.
