The Gift of Pain - Philip Yancey & Dr Paul Brand
Pain is nothing that most of us would count as a blessing. But his fifty-year career working with leprosy patients in India and the U.S. convinced Dr. Paul Brand that pain is one of God's great gifts to us. As an indicator that tells us something is wrong, pain has a value that becomes clearest in its absence. Those who feel no pain reap terrible consequences. In The Gift Nobody Wants, Philip Yancey and Dr. Brand look at pain-what it is, and why we need it if we're to live life fully. "This is no dry-as-dust philosophical discussion of pain; rather, it's a vital, flesh-and-blood account, fine reading for anyone."
