"When the Hurt Runs Deep" by Kay Arthur is a book about managing the disappointments of life. I was actually really looking forward to reading this book, as I have previously enjoyed her book, "As Silver Refined". Kay has such a way of relating to the reader, and giving such great Biblical advice. "When the Hurt Runs Deep" focuses on getting through the hard times in life, even as we wonder why God is putting us through this, or if God even cares. It is so important to have faith that God is there, even in these hard times, and Kay gives great personal stories as well as Biblical events that show that just because we are hurting or suffering, God has not betrayed us. I think that this book is wonderful. I love that Kay has such a gift for understanding the pain of others, and wanting to encourage them. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is dealing with painful situations in their life - this book is enlightening, inspiring, and encouraging. Wonderfully written!
