by Terry Wardle
How do you respond when you find yourself facing a dark and difficult valley? Most of us want to hurry through the tough times. But when we draw close to the fire of God's presence, we discover priceless treasures found only in the darkness of difficulty and discomfort.
For those experiencing the darkness of deep emotional wounds, this book lays out the source of healing and charts the path toward healthy relationships and spiritual maturity.
Dr. Terry Wardle is Professor of Spiritual Formation at Ashland Theological Seminary, Ashland, Ohio, and holds a D.Min. from Fuller Theological Seminary. He is the author of Healing Care, Healing Prayer: Helping the Broken Find Wholeness in Christ (2001), Draw Close to the Fire: Finding God in the Darkness (1998), The Transforming Path (2004), and numerous other books. He conducts frequent seminars on emotional healing for counselors, pastors, therapists and other caregivers.
"Draw Close to the Fire is starkly personal and authentic. Wardle shows us how to find God and our own wholeness by embracing emotional pain rather than running from it. In so doing, he is not just telling us what works for him. He is standing on the shoulders of the wisest people in history."
