The Deepest Place: Suffering and the Formation of Hope (Hardcover)
In the face of personal and global suffering, is it possible to live with hope rather than despair? Join psychiatrist, speaker, and award-winning author Curt Thompson as he shows us how God transforms our grief into a lasting peace that surpasses all understanding.
Suffering is a defining reality of life. Yet so many of us are so focused on avoiding discomfort that we've never learned how to actually suffer. But what if we could move from anxiety to durable hope?
In The Deepest Place, Thompson invites us to explore how the Apostle Paul's experience of love, secure attachment, and the deeply felt sense of God's abiding presence carried him through the challenges he faced--and how it can help us not just survive, but flourish in the presence of suffering.
Combining scripture with his own professional insight, Thompson helps us discover that:
- Suffering can increase our sense of security rather than our fears
- Hope is something we form in community
- Faith can grow out of anger, cynicism, and doubt
- Perseverance changes our brain and reshapes our imagination
- Listening to our bodies helps us find new hope in loss
As Thompson reminds us, those who have suffered greatly, including the Apostle Paul, are able to see their stories with a new understanding of God's presence and unfailing love. Let The Deepest Place show you how to do the same.
