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. Its 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.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 1/27/2014

    " I bought this book for my Kindle while in bed struggling with an illness. I live with chronic pain as well. It was really helpful to me. There was so much that Joni said that I liked, I started out trying to underline it all on my Kindle. Between my Kindle freezing (which they do when you underline a lot) and finding so many good points to underline, I finally gave up! I would have underlined half the book! This book was a good reminder to me of God's love and care, even when it seems He isn't answering. As I say, it helped me when I needed it most. Thanks Joni! "

    " Pretty sure I'm going to give this book a second read very soon. I've got it highlighted all over the place. I loved her insight on dealing with pain and suffering, the hope we have in being pain free in heaven, and seeing God at work in the pain in the present. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seth | 1/17/2014

    " Moving and motivating. I never really meant to read this book, but, having just picked it up for a second, I could not put it down. When Joni talks about enduring pain, she speaks with authority. If there is a modern-day Job in the public eye, she is the one. Read this book. "

    " Excellent. Talks about well meaning people not being helpful. Talks about the new development of chronic pain. Points on things to think about to cope. Talks about herself a little much, but also admits this. Could be a bit shorter. "
