Pain, Perplexity, and Promotion Oct. 18 2000
By Douglas R. Mead - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Pain is always painful, but there is a great deal of redemptive value in it when we can cooperate with the hand of God. The author does a good job of encouraging a proper response to His hand. In the turmoil of fear and doubt that accompany spiritual pain, pain that is not related to the consequence of sin, there is a need to maintain a proper attitude toward God. In the proper heart, our heavenly Father is able to recreate our human nature into the heart of Jesus.
We all have to walk a similar road, but only a few embrace the pain long enough to be recreated in His image. There are always an adequate supply of nearby outspoken 'voices' that desire to find a solution. Out of misunderstanding, these voices often assume that the discipline we experience is of punishment rather than the discipline that shapes our lives.
If it appears that God's blessing is far from you and others around you are attributing your 'failure' to some sin in your life, it may be that God is testing your soul in the crucible of pain and perplexity to prepare you for promotion.
This book is a must read volume on the subject of righteous suffering. Read it. It is like an ointment that soothes your soul. It brings focus to the purpose of difficulty and pain in our lives. It helps Jesus bring forth a newness of life from the depths of your pain. Like a mother who brings forth a child, this pain is soon forgotten once its work is done.

A book of healing in a very personal way Feb. 16 2007
By Hungry4grace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I believe Bob touched something very deep into the heart of the Father. The beautiful plan that God has by having this book of Job into the bible is to prepare the end-time bride generation, by first raising up a Job-generation! Job's name may mean "Father-less", but Job himself learned to dwell in His presence through all the trials and accusation of his so-called "friends" (I pray I won't have friends like these when I am in trouble), and when Job can finally claimed that "now my eyes have seen you!", he is ready to raise a generation of youths that are "the most beautiful in all the land" and they are ready to really inherit all the abundance from God.

Bob's book heals me, and raiss me up, from my own pits and slimes. I know I can be a better father now, and know that to raise my children up as Godly children, I need to encounter Him in a very personal way first.

Wisdom from the Trenches Dec 9 2009
By B. Beattie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I firswt came across this book several years ago while I was going through some extremely difficult circumstances. I was fighting falling into despair, and the bumper-sticker advice fellow Christians were giving me just wasn't helpful. Too many books are written by people to whom suffering is pretty much a theory, living lives that haven't necessarily been through long term suffering. I appreciated Bob's take on suffering, realizing that it comes from an author that is walking out what he writes about. His writing is all based in Scripture as well as his own experience. For others that are suffering and ask the question:"Where is God in my suffering?" Bob is courageous enough to offer an answer.
