Finding purpose in the painful situations of life is something that more people need to be aware of and implement into their lives.
I know that Dr. Meier and Dr. Henderson are trying to encourage others to do this, and that their intentions are good, but this book misses the mark of being Biblically accurate. Early on they said that you can only love others as much as you love yourself and I highly disagree with that statement. We can love others because God first loved us. Our love does not come from us, it comes from Him.
The book overall presents some good, and thought provoking ideas about pain in our lives. While this is good, the underlying teaching taking place is faulty and I recommend reading this book with great discernment or even skipping it to read The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis.
