The Hardest Peace – Book Review
When most people receive a diagnosis as terrifying as stage 4 metastatic cancer, a lot of things run through their minds – but rarely is sitting down and writing a book that will inspire others to live more meaningfully among them.
That’s one of the things that makes The Hardest Peace – Expecting Grace In The Midst Of Life’s Hard a book that simply must make your reading list. You’ll not want to miss the chance to meet Kara Tippetts and bask in the grace of the wisdom and life lessons she so abundantly shares.
The Hardest Peace isn’t just a book for cancer patients or those dealing with life-threatening illnesses – although people in those situations will certainly appreciate the perspective from which Kara writes.
No, The Hardest Peace is for all of us, since we all live in a broken world, and we all need grace to help us through our hardest days.
Here is what Kara says about The Hardest Peace:
This is not simply my story and journey with cancer. It is a book written to appeal to us all as we meet the bitter edges of life on this side of eternity.
In the brokenness of our unmet expectations of life, will we look for Jesus and His abundant love?
Or will we tumble into bitterness and anger that leave us utterly self focused and disappointed by the hard in our story each of us are asked to receive?
In The Hardest Peace, Kara shares pieces of her heart, soul and journey with us – but she also invites us to share our journey as well. At the end of each chapter are questions that help you to connect with the One who can change your life and your perspective and grant you peace, regardless of the circumstances you find yourself in.
Kara says that “writing The Hardest Peace proved to be a gift to write.” I encourage you to pick up a copy of this book as you will find that it is a gift to read too!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
