Publisher's Description

Suffering and the Heart of God answers some of the most difficult questions Christians face, like: “Can Christ really heal the traumatized?” “How can we help those who are suffering when helping takes such a toll on us personally?” “Why can’t people ‘get over’ what’s happened to them?” Langberg presents her experiences as a seasoned trauma counselor within a biblical framework for engaging with trauma – offering a sober - minded gospel hope that can’t be found in other trauma literature. Accessible and engaging, Suffering and the Heart of God is designed as a reference book for anyone – including pastors, clinicians, and laypersons–who want to help those impacted by trauma.
