Countless people spend their lives selflessly serving loved ones who are suffering. However, these caregivers-not just the cared for-suffer in their own unique ways, often in silence and without much support from others. Writing from the unique perspective of one who needs care on a daily basis, Dave Furman offers insight into the support, encouragement, and wisdom that people need when helping others, month after month, year after year. Furman draws on his own life experiences, examples from the Bible, and wisdom from Christians throughout history to address the heart and ministry of caregivers-the "silent sufferers." Deeply personal and powerfully pastoral, this book points readers to the strength that only God can provide as they love those who are hurting. Afterword written by Gloria Furman, the author's wife and primary caregiver.

"When Jesus said that he came to serve and not be served, he must've had in mind the many people who help Dave Furman. This remarkable story provides soul-strengthening encouragement to those who daily bear the burdens of people like me and Dave, people who just need a helping hand, day after day. I intend to give Being There to the many people who are daily there for me, a quadriplegic-it's a must read for any believer who desires to follow Jesus in a life of service to others."
- Joni Eareckson Tada, founder and CEO, Joni and Friends International Disability Center

"As I think about the people in my world with chronic pain and ongoing difficulties, and about my awkwardness in knowing how best to walk with them, I can't imagine a better guide than Dave Furman. Being There is filled with insight that only someone who has walked this road can provide."
- Nancy Guthrie, Bible teacher; author

"So much of the Christian life is a matter of simply being there-for those who are hurting. For many years Dave Furman has faithfully modeled being there for others while he himself has benefited from those who have been there for him. This gives him a unique perspective and wisdom in crafting a book about helping the hurting. I highly recommend it."
- Tim Challies, blogger, Challies.com

:
Everyone has friends or family who suffer from sickness, disability, depression, or the death of a loved one.


Oftentimes, the people who love the hurting also struggle in their own unique ways. They tend to suffer in silence and without much support from others. Writing from the unique perspective of one who needs extra help on a daily basis, Dave Furman offers insight into the support, encouragement, and wisdom that people need when helping others. Furman draws on his own life experiences, examples from the Bible, and wisdom from Christians throughout history to address the heart and ministry of those who are called to serve others. Deeply personal and powerfully pastoral, this book points readers to the strength that only God can provide as they love those who are hurting. Afterword written by Gloria Furman, the author's wife.
