Being There: How to Love Those Who Are Hurting by Dave Furman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book was very helpful in understanding what it means to walk closely with those who experience suffering. Dave Furman has a severe disability himself, so he knows what it means to struggle with how to empathize with and encourage the suffering. It is an honest book, and a much needed one.
I rated it fours stars because I found his writing style to be slightly difficult to read, but honestly, I can't tell you why I felt that way. The flow just didn't seem as clear as it could have been.
If you would like to know what it means to "be there" for suffering people, you should read this book. It is full of wonderful illustrations and anecdotes that help to really grasp both the challenges and the joys within the topic of suffering.
