  • "Being recently immersed with a family in the raw grief of a tragedy, I found myself reading the Beyond Suffering Bible not only through my eyes but also theirs. I can’t say enough about the value of this monumental work. To integrate God’s Word with such sparkling, honest, and Christ-centered insights was brilliant. I don’t know how this Bible could be better or more complete! I believe our Redeemer will use it powerfully. I can’t imagine any person who loves God and loves people not loving this amazing product. I will personally give the Beyond Suffering Bible to many. I’m glad to offer my most enthusiastic recommendation for this extraordinary resource!”
    – Randy Alcorn
    Author and Speaker

  • "It would be hard to imagine a more important topic or a more appropriate person to address it. Joni has lived a life of faith forged by challenge. This Bible is a timely contribution and a valuable resource.”
    – Max Lucado
    pastor and bestselling author

  • “I love this Bible! The notes and resources within the pages are infused not with pity or sympathy but with the tender loving-kindness of a God who truly feels our pain.

    Only someone who has suffered deeply could be used so greatly as to enhance and enrich God’s own words with such compassionate understanding. On behalf of those who suffer in ways others can’t see, thank you, Joni!”
