Amazon.com Review

"What is the difference between the paraplegic woman with the smile that lights a room and the millionaire with a suicide wish?" asks Billy Graham. "Or what makes one person accept and keep his balance during a painful time, and another become a self-pitying whiner?" Hope for the Troubled Heart: Finding God in the Midst of Pain is Graham's attempt to answer these questions and the larger question that underlies them: why, in a world full of pain, should people hope and not despair? Perhaps the most powerful thing about this book is the sheer number of its heartbreaking stories about people suffering from abuse, loneliness, sickness, emptiness, financial ruin, and other calamities. Nearly every reader will find something to relate to.

Graham's stories do not stop at desolation, however. They press further, to show how suffering people find solace in the Bible, in the love of other believers, and in the hope of heaven. What Graham offers in this book is a reason to be patient, a reason to believe that the forces of destruction need not have the last word in human life. "A few more days may dawn and darken and we will know the unending day," he writes. "A few brief years, or brief moments, and we shall enter that eternal city, sit in the shadow of the Tree of Life, and drink the crystal clear water. We have only had a foretaste on earth of what it means to love and be loved." That, in the end, is the greatest reason for hope that Graham offers. --Kevin Attwood --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

"Reach for the happiness that lies beyond hardship and heartache. A lost job, a shaky marriage? Loneliness, frustration, or feelings or failure? A family tragedy or a serious illness? Life is full of tough times that can leave us feeling lost and helpless. But Dr. Billy Graham, who has brought wisdom and inspiration to millions of people around the world wisdom and inspiration to millions of people around the world, shows you how to triumph over pain an uncertainty and discover an inner strength you might otherwise have never known. You'll learn: How to turn the "why" of suffering into the "how" of faith. How to stop resentment and bitterness from stopping you. How failure can groom you for future success. How to store up strength for storms before they break. Prayers as a way of life-a first resort, not a last gasp! Life as a schoolroom for the afterlife. And much more. . . --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

By Michael Taylor TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 2, 2009
Format: Paperback
In my humble opinion, "Hope For The Troubled Heart" by Billy Graham is one of the best titles by him that I have ever read. I've always liked his writing style - flows freely, easily understood without being simplistic, and tells it like it is.

Billy Graham does not mince words - unlike some preachers, he readily acknowledges the evil and sin in this world. Thankfully, he does not stop there and takes one step further and presents the solution - Jesus Christ!

Among the topics covered include:

1. Reality of a world in pain.
2. God's amazing love for us as shown through Jesus Christ.
3. Why Jesus had to suffer for us.
4. The cost of discipleship.
5. Why we sometimes have to suffer.
6. What to do when you hurt.
7. How we can hurt those who are hurting (remember, God wants to use your pain to minister to others!)

A great read. Read and be encouraged in the Lord!

I purchased this as a gift,and then I purchased one for myself. No matter how old a person gets,there are still some hurts that settle into the deepest depths of a heart. It is beautiful reading for new or old pains. Mr. Graham manages to always have the most beautiful of honest words in every book he writes. As a reader,you are always aware of his love for God,and that he too is learning as he writes because he too is human. I respect him for his honesty and love of our Lord. Good book.

I received so much comfort from this book. In the following days I hope to read excerpts from this book to my son and have him be receptive. Having the strength of the Lord is going to help me get through this. God makes no mistakes so I know I must rejoice in His will. I am rejoicing that I was able to have my wonderful son for 47 years. He is a joy to me, he loves "his mommy" and I won't leave his side until he goes to heaven.

This book is so well done and insightful! It really pulled me out of a funk. Of course it is based in Christianity, but the practical advice and apprach to accepting life and embrassing the now- would be able to cross through religious boundaries and help non Christians as well.
