"People have problems," writes Rod Wilson. And when it's a friend or loved one, we naturally want to help. Unfortunately, many Christians do not have the necessary resources they need to resolve the problem. Until now. How Do I Help a Hurting Friend? is a kindhearted, comprehensive, and practical guide to ministry through friendship. With over twenty-five years of experience, Rod Wilson sheds light on how to help others by illustrating that people need to be understood. He provides succinct descriptions of five core problems (self-image, grief, depression, burnout, and a dysfunctional family), describes what it's like to experience each, offers biblical advice on how to approach the problem, and gives practical ways one can help. For anyone who has a friend with problems, this insightful and compassionate book will fill the widening gap in ministry resources.
