Product description

An expanded edition of this classic book on grief and loss--with a new preface and epilogue Loss came suddenly for Jerry Sittser. In an instant, a tragic car accident claimed three generations of his family: his mother, his wife, and his young daughter. While most of us will not experience such a catastrophic loss in our lifetime, all of us will taste it. And we can, if we choose, know as well the grace that transforms it. A Grace Disguised plumbs the depths of sorrow, whether due to illness, divorce, or the loss of someone we love. The circumstances are not important; what we do with those circumstances is. In coming to the end of ourselves, we can come to the beginning of a new life--one marked by spiritual depth, joy, compassion, and a deeper appreciation of simple blessings.

This book is truly a must read for any who have suffered bereavement of a loved one. It is honest and comprehensive giving questions and answers to so many of those questions that assail us when faced with the unthinkable. A Grace Disguised addresses many of the issues we are confronted with and leads us into a place of healing. I will be buying many copies of this book to pass on to friends!
