Publisher's Summary

In this eloquent account of her current struggle with physical pain, Joni Eareckson Tada offers her perspective on divine healing, God’s purposes, and what it means to live with joy. Over four decades ago, a diving accident left Joni a quadriplegic. Today, she faces a new battle: unrelenting pain. The ongoing urgency of this season in her life has caused Joni to return to foundational questions about suffering and God’s will.
A Place of Healing is not an ivory tower treatise on suffering. Its an intimate look into the life of a mature woman of God. Whether readers are enduring physical pain, financial loss, or relational grief, Joni invites them to process their suffering with her. Together, they will navigate the distance between God’s magnificent yes and heartbreaking no and find new hope for thriving in between.

Encouraging Book

Would you listen to A Place of Healing again? Why?

I enjoyed listening to

Who was your favorite character and why?

Joni Eeareckson Tada talks opening about the chronic pain that she experiences on a daily basis, and how she must live day by day in dependence upon God. She shares many other stories about adults and children who are confined to a wheelchair due to their disability, and their stories of courage and faith in God are inspiring.

What does Joni Eareckson Tada bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Joni narrates this book, and she does it in a conversational way that makes you feel as if you were sitting with her at her home, as she pours out her heart and shares the wisdom that she has learned through suffering. She sings a few short songs, which I have to say make this book precious. To hear her sing to the Lord through her pain is a special gift that she gives to us.

Any additional comments?

Joni talks about the Sovereignty of God over out trials, and how He works all things together for good. Working all things together for good sometimes means that He does not take the trial away. Joni shares how in the early days of her paralysis she prayed continually that God would heal her. She now sees the countless people who have been helped through her ministry because God chose not to heal her. One thing that really struck me in this book was when she talked about taking your eyes off your own problems and helping others. She gave examples of people she met who lay aside their own daily challenges to offer assistance to others. This book is not just for those who suffer from chronic pain or a disability. I was greatly encouraged by this book and it gave me a better perspective on how a Christian should view any kind of suffering in trials.

Outstanding Information

Where does A Place of Healing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

First, it is not like other audio books. Joni is the one doing all the reading. Unlike other readers, this simple act is difficult for her and extremely taxing. Second, for those of us who suffer with agonizing diseases (I suffer with Multiple Sclerosis) to hear that Joni is now living with constant pain, yet praises our Great God and King, Jesus Christ is humbling and encouraging.

Who was your favorite character and why?

God, and what He promises.

Have you listened to any of Joni Eareckson Tada’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Never have. Will look for more from Joni's past.

What did you learn from A Place of Healing that you would use in your daily life?

To trust God when it hurts. To remember He is helping even when it doesn't seem like he's near. I need to relisten to this book to write out and memorize all of the scripture resources she quotes.

Any additional comments?

Nope. If you care about how you walk with Jesus, even in pain, and you feel like you can't take one more step, one more breath, this listen is for you.

Excellent book, really enjoyed it!

Would you consider the audio edition of A Place of Healing to be better than the print version?

Yes I would. I purchased both the audio edition and the print edition and this audio edition was excellent, very moving and extremely well read by Joni. I have several audio books of which I struggle to listen to, but I went through this in a couple of days and that is both due to the content which I thoroughly enjoyed, very moving but also because it was read by Joni and so she was speaking from her experience right from the heart. At times I felt very emotional.

What other book might you compare A Place of Healing to, and why?

Don't have any comparisons. Joni's book was exceptional.

What about Joni Eareckson Tada’s performance did you like?

Her clarity, very natural, it was real, straight from the heart.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes if I had the time.

Any additional comments?

Go get it, brilliant book.
