Sooner or later, suffering touches us all. It may be personal pain--the loss of a mate, a debilitating illness, a financial disaster. It may be the pain of someone we're close to--a friend or loved one whose grief leaves us groping for words of comfort. Dave and Jan Dravecky understand suffering. Dave's bout with cancer resulted in the removal of his left arm and the end of his career as a stand-out pitcher for the San Francisco Giants. The shattering losses in Jan's life, including her husband's amputation, led her into a dark valley of depression that only God's grace could bring her out of. The Draveckys' experiences give them credence when they tell hurting people, Do Not Lose Heart. Based on the Scripture passage that has become the Draveckys' motto, 2 Corinthians 4:16-18, this devotional is for people who are struggling. People who don't need abstract theology and, quite frankly, can't concentrate enough for lengthy reading, but who long for a few wise, uplifting words from fellow Christians who know what it's like.Featuring the luminous artwork of internationally renowned painter Thomas Kinkade, Do Not Lose Heart is a comforting and uplifting union of word and image. Dave, Jan, and well-known Christian writers such as Joni, C. H. Spurgeon, D. L. Moody, C. S. Lewis, and Oswald Chambers share the encouragement of Scripture and the peace that comes from knowing and walking with God. Their messages of hope, consolation, insight, and joy are reflected in the warm glow of Thomas Kinkade's art, which speaks to the spirit in its own inspiring language of color and light. A feast for the eye as well as the heart, Do Not Lose Heart is the perfect introduction to Zondervan's new category of encouragement books. This beautifully written, attractively designed devotional will be a daily source of joy, reassurance, and comfort for anyone who suffers or grieves.From the Author:
