  • Path Through Suffering

    $10.50

    Elisabeth Elliot plots the treacherous passage through pain, grief, and loss, a journey most of us will make many times in our life. Through it all, she says, there is only one reliable path, and if you walk it, you will see the transformation of all your losses, heartbreaks, and tragedies into something strong and purposeful. In this powerful book, Elisabeth Elliot does not hesitate to ask hard questions, to examine tenderly the hurts we suffer, and to explore boldly the nature of God whose sovereign care for us is so intimate and perfect that he confounds our finite understanding. A Path through Suffering is a book for anyone searching for faith, comfort, and assurance. Includes a new foreword by Joni Eareckson Tada.

  • Facing Grief : Counsel For Mourners

    $6.99

    In 1674, two years after his second wife’s death, John Flavel published – A Token for Mourners. In it he meditates on the words of Luke 7:13: ‘And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.’ From this verse the author helps the reader to think about grief, distinguishing ‘moderate’ sorrow from ‘immoderate’. He spells out what is appropriate for a Christian mourner and what is not. This book is full of Scripture, counsel, warning, and wisdom gained from prayerful reflection on the personal experience of affliction in loss and grief.

  • From Grief To Glory

    $11.85

    Looking back on the death of my son, I see now the value of trudging through life’s struggles with others who have trod the same path…The comfort they obtained has helped me, and I believe that all who suffer similar losses may discover these saints to be comrades and find in their stories comfort and encouragement. — The author

    There are few joys to match that which a child brings to a family. And even fewer sorrows that rival the pain of burying a child. James Bruce and his wife, Joni, knew that pain when their infant son died. They found comfort in the words of others who had known similar loss: fellow Christians such as Martin Luther, Charles Spurgeon, and John Bunyan, who also wept and yet were comforted by the Father of mercies.

    Their intimate, emotional expressions of pain, peace, and hope – and their prevailing faith – are shared throughout these pages in both the short accounts and the eloquent poetry gathered here. If you or a loved one is walking through the valley of weeping – especially at the loss of a son or daughter – know that you are not alone, and let those who have come before remind you of your heavenly Father’s sovereign grace and the mystery of joy in the midst of suffering.

  • Grief And Pain In The Plan Of God

    $7.79

    Most of us will have faced that most delicate situation of meeting a person who is suffering. We tend to go down one of two different avenues. One is to offer well-intentioned advice – often in the form of well-worn cliches that the person will have heard several times before. The other is not to say anything at all – risking the danger of leaving the person under the impression that God has no idea what is going on and is unable to help.

    How are we to understand suffering and its place in our lives? Should we try and rationalize it away, trying to come up with a solution that sits as comfortably as possible? Surely we should look to Scripture first? This is what Walter Kaiser does here. Looking at the Old Testament book of Lamentations Kaiser does not offer any easy solutions – but rather shows us how a Sovereign and Loving God can work through even the most painful moments.

  • Grief Observed

    $10.17

    Written by C. S. Lewis with love and humility, this brief but poignant volume was first published in 1961 and courageously encounters the anger and heart-break that followed the death of his wife, an American-born poet, Joy Davidman. Handwritten entries from notebooks that Lewis found in his home capture the doubt and anguish that we all face in times of great loss. He questions his beliefs in this graceful and poignant affirmation of faith in the face of senseless loss.
