Dan Allender says that doubt, despair, and disappointment are not only a reality of daily life, they are also the tools God uses to grow faith, hope, and love. If people run from what they fear they actually rob themselves of the joy God intends for them to experience. The Healing Path is about the road that leads to health as people face the pain in their souls as they suffer in a world that is at times dark and tragic. Faith is lost: How could God allow this to happen to me? Hope is lost: How can I ever be the same after this hurt? Love is lost: How can I give and receive when so much has been lost?

The Healing Path is about the spiritual process that heals betrayal, powerlessness,and ambivalence.The clinician will apprecite from a Christian perspective the capacity to empower others to savor a greater joy in spite of inevitable sorrow.
