Craig K. Svensson helps those living with a chronic illness examine its effect on their spiritual life and find hope amid their suffering. 

In a society that emphasizes the importance of good health, those living with constant pain, unending fatigue, depression, or a host of other never-ending physical and mental symptoms struggle to accept the providence of God in their illness and the limitations that illness brings. It’s easy to become so consumed with the physical nature of your illness that you fail to see the most important impact is spiritual.

Svensson knows from personal experience how hard it is to navigate the spiritual, emotional, and relational challenges that arise when living with an ongoing ailment. He shares what he’s learned about God’s comfort and care through his struggles. If you are navigating life with chronic illness, When the Hurt Won’t Heal will help you find the path to growing in faith despite the pain, fear, or darkness you may be experiencing.

  • Practical, accessible, spiritual guidance for sufferers and their caregivers to grow trust in God and his daily sustaining grace.
