Product Description

Product Description

In this eloquent account of her current struggle with physical pain, Joni Eareckson Tada offers her perspective on divine healing, God’s purposes, and what it means to live with joy.

Over four decades ago, a diving accident left Joni a quadriplegic. Today, she faces a new battle: unrelenting pain. The ongoing urgency of this season in her life has caused Joni to return to foundational questions about suffering and God’s will.

A Place of Healing is not an ivory-tower treatise on suffering. It’s an intimate look into the life of a mature woman of God. Whether readers are enduring physical pain, financial loss, or relational grief, Joni invites them to process their suffering with her. Together, they will navigate the distance between God’s magnificent yes and heartbreaking no—and find new hope for thriving in-between.
 

From the Back Cover

Over four decades ago, a diving accident left Joni Eareckson Tada a quadriplegic. Since that time, she has become a beloved writer and speaker to millions. But today, Joni faces a new battle: chronic, unrelenting pain. As she writes,

Just as I said to God years ago when I was first injured, I find myself praying, Lord, I can't live like this for the rest of my life! This ongoing urgency has forced me to look back on familiar scriptures and examine them from new angles. Does God miraculously intervene in the lives of all who pray for release from migraine headaches, multiple sclerosis, cancer--or, in my case, chronic pain?

And if not, why not?

Here Joni invites you to walk with her through an intense and baffling season of her life. Her words offer not a bundle of ivory-tower theological conclusions but intimate insight from a woman on a journey--a woman who believes in healing from a God who chooses when that healing will come.

Someone recommended this book while we were both sharing from our cronic sciatic pain. I was 2 months post surgery for a herniated disc and still having the nerve pain. When i started reading the first few pages i realized that what i had was nothibg comparing to what other people go through. I wish i had read this book before the surgery when i was hooked on pain killers fighting depression. I will continue to recommend this book to everyone especially those dealing with some sort of pain in their body. Definitely a must read. I love how it deals with the subject of healing hearing it from a lady who is moree satisfied with the grace of God and with Christ's presence in her life than anything else.

True to God's Word, Joni outlines the question of "healing" out of her personal experience......and clearly displays how great God is during her immediate trials.
Challenging.....thought-provoking....and most of all- God glorifying!

this book is written by a woman who has accomplished amazing things in spite of spending 40 years in a wheelchair. She has formed a group to help others with physical disabilities (Joni and Friends) and has another group called Wheels to the World which remodels wheelchairs and sends them to people in poverty who require help to navigate. She deals with issues of healing and those who are not healed. Her conclusion is that healing is guaranteed in heaven and until then she lives life with gratitude each day.

This is another great book by Joni. She is totally honest and real about her life right now. She is our modern-day Job. The best book on pain I have read to date.
