“Read but the words of this book and be healed. Dr. Hurley is that remarkable combination of rigorous scientist and profoundly spiritual physician. You would not mind a long wait in his office to tell him your story. But you will likely find it already in these pages with indispensable counsel on how to understand and manage the sorrows and pains of life. You will keep this book and give copies to others.”
—Eugene Kennedy, author of The Pain of Being Human and My Brother Joseph: The Spirit of a Cardinal and the Story of a Friendship

Coping with illness is never easy, but we can find hope in the midst of our suffering when we look to Jesus, the ultimate physician. In Facing Pain, Finding Hope, Dr. Daniel Hurley explores what he calls "the intimacy of suffering and faith."It is a place where afflicted people encounter the Jesus of the Gospels—a doctor with no rushed appointment schedule, no need of malpractice insurance. Dr. Hurley shows how an intimate reading of the Gospels can open new horizons of healing for people coping with illness. Through this book, he invites sufferers—and those who live with them—into a dialogue with Jesus the healer.

Book Description:

Harvard-trained physician Daniel Hurley lives in a world of suffering—the Chicago hospitals and the examining rooms of a famous clinic where he treats patients afflicted with chronic pain. He uses all the tools of modern medicine in his work of healing, but his patients’ struggles frequently raise questions of faith. In Facing Pain, Finding Hope, Dr. Hurley explores what he calls “the intimacy of suffering and faith.” It is a place where afflicted people encounter the Jesus of the Gospels—“a doctor with no rushed appointment schedule, no need of malpractice insurance.”
Dr. Hurley shows how an intimate reading of the gospels can open new horizons of healing for people in pain. He invites sufferers—and those who live with them—into a dialogue with Jesus the healer. “He will not shirk the questions asked of him,” he writes. “The question is how we will handle the questions
he poses to us.”

From the Inside Flap:

Dr. Daniel Hurley works in a world of pain—chronic pain of the type that afflicts more than 25 million Americans. Most of the people who consult him in his world-renowned Chicago clinic are living with physical conditions that will not go away. Many have lost hope. Dr. Hurley uses all the tools of modern medicine to bring relief to those who spend their days and nights in unremitting pain.
But Dr. Hurley has found that the world of pain is a deeply spiritual world. People in chronic pain, and those who live with them, face profound religious questions. Often they are thrust into what Dr. Hurley calls “the intimacy of suffering and faith”—the place where physical distress and inner suffering open possibilities for spiritual growth. Facing Pain, Finding Hope is Dr. Hurley’s exploration of that mysterious, private place. It reveals what he and his patients have found there.
Dr. Hurley shows how an intimate reading of the gospels can open new horizons of healing for people in chronic pain. He invites sufferers—and their family members and caregivers—into a dialogue with Jesus as healer. Dr. Hurley assures sufferers that Jesus will never shirk from answering their most difficult questions. The real question is how we will handle the questions and answers Jesus poses back to us.
