Publisher's Description

Catastrophes can strike anyone, at any time. 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.

Author Bio

JAN WINEBRENNER is a freelance writer who grew up in Northern Arizona, spending her teen years on the Navajo Indian Reservation where her parents taught school. Her gifts in writing and speaking were further refined at Northern Arizona University and John Brown University where she studied literature and education. Jan is author of eight books including The Grace of Catastrophe, Steel In His Soul, and Intimate Faith and has written countless articles for periodicals as diverse as Vietnam Today, Leadership, The Dallas Morning News, Today's Christian Woman, and Decision. Jan founded the Dallas Christian Writers Guild and frequently speaks for writers' groups and college and university writing classes. Jan and her husband, Ken, have been married over 35 years. They have two children and two grandchildren and reside in Plano, Texas.

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
