Torn by Jud Wilhite

As someone who has seen my fair share of hard times, throughout this book I was nodding my head in agreement. Jud Wilhite is not afraid to tackle tough issues. It is obvious that Jud has been through his own tough situations where God has been there with him through it all. If you know of someone who is asking "Why is this happening to me", this would be a great book to get into their hands.

One of my favorite quotes was: "Maybe if we regularly spent time staring up at the vast expanse of the night sky and meditating on the God who established and upholds it, we would spend less time questioning his ability to comfort and console us" (61).

Wilhite embraced counseling as a way of dealing with life issues. I am glad he mentioned it because so many people shy away from going to a counselor, even though it will help them. Wilhite also mentioned his love of playing guitar when he's upset about how life is playing out. "Whatever helps you express your hurts can be helpful in journeying through them" (131).

I reviewed this book for Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers Blogging for Books. I received this book for free in exchange for a review of the book.
