From Publishers Weekly
Guthrie, author of bestselling Holding On to Hope, continues her theme of suffering in her newest book, written for those of us who find ourselves in places of deep sorrow and suffering. She mines with skill the many treasures found in Jesus' words that we might have skimmed over in the past, the ones we're so familiar with that they have little impact. Ten chapters tap into 10 phrases of Jesus, from My soul is crushed with grief to the point of death in the gospel of Matthew to My grace is all you need in 2 Corinthians. She doesn't offer platitudes, but instead speaks honestly from her own broken heart (she's buried two infants). We want to see the ways God is using our loss for good. Sometimes God... draws back the curtain and shows us;... other times we have to wait. Chapters end with paraphrased versions of Jesus' words, with discussion questions at the end of the book. Guthrie's work is an important study of suffering that offers readers an honest, provocative, grace-filled and soothing salve to their souls. (July)

From the Inside Flap
Ten years after burying a daughter and then a son and writing Holding On to Hope, a book that has been published in eight languages and has helped thousands of people around the world make sense of their suffering, Nancy Guthrie brings the additional perspective of years and further scriptural study to the issues we all struggle with when life hurts. In Hearing Jesus Speak into Your Sorrow, Nancy shines a light on eleven statements Jesus made, mining them for meaning for those who hurt. "Honestly I've chosen many of these statements because they are the ones that have been most challenging for me to understand and apply to my own experiences," Nancy writes. "They are the ones that have caused me to say, 'I just don't get it' as I read them and tried to fit them into my established understanding of the nature and purpose of the ministry of Jesus. Over and over I find that the passages of Scripture that on the surface seem indiscernible to me hold some of the richest truths-life-changing, perspective-shaping, hope-giving truths." As you explore those truths with Nancy through the pages of this book, you'll find that Jesus speaks life into death, hope into despair, truth into delusion, meaning into futility, peace into panic. And from his lips you'll receive wisdom, compassion, companionship . . . and so much more.

The author helped me to hear Jesus speaking into my sorrow, telling me there is purpose in my pain. I want to show the world that being connected to Jesus makes a huge difference in how I am able to walk the path of sorrow of losing my beloved husband to colon cancer.
If you are grieving, purchase this book sooner than later. Nancy walks through many of the steps(that by God's grace I have just been through. There was one chapter that I could not quite understand where she landed, so I'll be spending time there, hoping that God shows me truths about himself.
