Zondervan, 2022
By Tim Challies

WHO: Tim Challies, an author, pastor and blogger at Challies.com.

HE SAYS: “The purest joy and the fullest rest lie beyond time’s horizon.”

THE BIG IDEA: An honest and personal account of the pain, fear and doubts that often plague us in grief and a look at what it means to grieve as Christians.

THE PROGRESSION: This reflective book is divided into four sections each named for one of the seasons. The author starts with the death of his son, then takes readers on a yearlong journey through what he calls the “ministry of sorrow,” showing them how to grieve as those who have real hope in Jesus. 

“As I blessed him in the giving, I will bless him in the taking, for he is good all the time and all the time he is good.”
