Publisher's Description

Catastrophes can strike anyone, at anytime. No life is immune. No place is invulnerable. The only difference is what we do with them when they come. Jan Winebrenner writes to encourage women who have been stricken by catastrophe: cling to God for comfort and security. He uses challenges in our lives to conform us to His character. Like nothing else, devastation allows God to reveal Himself to us in unimaginable ways, drawing us into closer, deeper intimacy with Him.

Donning sackcloth and ashes, Jan Winebrenner sits beside those wracked with pain and offers a glimpse of the one true God to comfort those who mourn in The Grace of Catastrophe.
Conference speaker and freelance writer, Jan Winebrenner, shares her journey through perplexing times and circumstance to a place of trusting God. With the graciousness and eloquence, she draws from the masters: Fenélon, Tozer, Lewis, Piper, Nouwen, Sayers, Manning; weaving a tale of hope, revealing the face of God. Each chapter ends with a “Tracking Grace” section, which has a quote, Scripture, and reflection questions.
Winebrenner lets God be God. Celebrating the mystery and lamenting the tragedy of human life, readers are encouraged to fix their gaze upon Jesus, the inscrutable One. Drawing from saints through the ages, readers discover nothing new has befallen us, there has always been tragedy. But Winebrenner reminds us of the great mystery of God working all things out for the good.
Never trite, Winebrenner allows readers to enter into her journey, and shares honestly of her shortcomings and trials. A refreshingly contemplative book, one readers will want to savor. I highly recommend this book for any who find themselves grappling with the difficulties of this life. -- Suzanne Rae Deshchidn, Christian Book Previews.com

    This book is understandably written with a depth to help even a new Christian grow as well as speaking to a Christian of many years. Seldom have I found a book that in a self directed manner touches my heart so deeply. Subjects remind me of the faith markers in my own life as well as challenges to know God ever deeper.

    I usually skip reviews, but want to share this book with others. Hoping to use for a ladies Bible study.
