Shunning platitudes and easy answers, Nancy Guthrie deals head-on with the issues experienced by those who are going through suffering and loss. Through lessons drawn from the biblical story of Job and the experience of losing her infant daughter, Hope, Nancy gently challenges readers to embrace suffering as a means of discovering a more meaningful relationship with God. Holding On to Hope offers an uplifting perspective, not only for those experiencing monumental loss but also for anyone going through difficulty and failure. Ms. Guthrie's story of losing her daughter is woven beautifully throughout, adding a richness and credibility lacking in many books on suffering. After finishing the manuscript, the author added an epilogue that deals with an additional devastating loss—the death of her infant son Gabriel who died of the same disease that took her daughter Hope.
