Publisher's Description

Chronic pain is different from other kinds of physical pain because it doesn’t stop. It is daily, unrelenting, soul–wearying pain for which there is no end in sight. Can you still experience God’s grace and help even in the midst of never ending pain?

Michael R. Emlet, physician and counselor, includes a brief overview of the physiological aspects of pain and then goes on to outline a God–shaped perspective on chronic pain. When you turn to God, your pain may not disappear, but fear, anxiety, and despair can be replaced with a simple trust in God’s understanding, care, and love.
