"No one in the evangelical world has done more reading, thinking, praying, and reflecting on suffering and faith than Joni Eareckson Tada. She is always 'must-reading,' but this particular book is a brilliant addition to her body of work. Music sends theology deep into the heart in a unique way, and Joni's meditations on these beautiful hymns will make them even more effective in your life. Highly recommended."
--Tim Keller, Pastor Emeritus, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City

"Songs of Suffering is one of those rare books that isn't intended to be read; it's intended to be experienced. I sang, cried, smiled, prayed, and worshiped through every page. No matter what you're walking through, let Joni be your song leader, and your heart won't be the same."
--David Platt, Pastor-Teacher, McLean Bible Church; author, Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream

"Where would we be without hymns? Where would we be without songs to express our sorest griefs and deepest sorrows? I hope you'll allow Joni Eareckson Tada to introduce you to some of the best and most powerful of them all, to explain how they have been a blessing and comfort to her-and to encourage you to get to know them, to commit them to memory, and to sing them before the Lord, so they can be a blessing and comfort to you as well."
--Tim Challies, author, Seasons of Sorrow

"If you take the time to open up this book, be warned: It will grow your faith. It will help you fall in love with Christ more, as you learn to sing hymns that will sustain you and uphold you through days of misery and suffering. I was greatly encouraged by Joni's Songs of Suffering, and you will be too."
--Deepak Reju, Pastor of Biblical Counseling and Family Ministry, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC

"Joni has given us a gift: to learn to sing through our sorrows and all the days of our lives. Through historical hymns and biblical reflections, we are reminded to go to our Savior, who cares for us more deeply than we could ever imagine. Join Joni and the choir of those who have gone before us to sing of the excellencies of our God. Your heart will be glad as your tongue rejoices (Ps. 16:9)."
--Trillia Newbell, author, A Great Cloud of Witnesses; If God Is For Us; and Sacred Endurance
