When the Hurt Runs Deep is a deeply insightful book about pain and suffering from well-known author Kay Arthur. This is the first book by her that I have read and I think 2 things stood out to me. First, she uses a LOT of Scripture throughout her book. Secondly, this book was not an easy read.
Arthur, often speaking from a personal knowledge of hurt, fills the book with a lot of information. I found that it was of such a "heavy" nature that it was hard to read very quickly. The book also contains a study guide in the back for personal use or with a small group. I would recommend using the book with the study guide over a long period of time. You would probably get the most out of it by reading it in small portions and allowing for time to consider what you have read.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
