Product Description

Loss in life is inevitable, but it's possible to harness the hardship of loss and turn it into a positive event in your life. Author Jerry Sittser explores painful events like divorce, death and illness and shows that it's not the circumstances we find ourselves in at these points of loss, but how we respond to them that widens our spiritual capacity to experience blessing and growth in the midst of grief.

Publisher's 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.

    Although it seems like this isn't a particularly well known book when I ask others if they have read it, I think it is one of the best books addressing grief available.

    Someone had recommended it to me and I happened to end up reading it not long before someone close to me died. Although my education is in the counseling field, and I have read numerous books on grief, as well as walked through the loss of many others close to me prior, I was grateful to have just read Sittser's book.

    I was grateful I had read this prior to that particular death, though, as I think reading the extent of the loss that Sittser walked through might have been difficult when in the middle of processing your own grief.

    However it is a book to return to over and over, whether you've lost someone or not.

    What I really liked, though, is that Sittser's book really contains valuable principles that transfer to loss in general, not just death - meaning chronic/severe illness, etc. as well.

    It is truly an exceptional gem and worth reading and returning to over and over.

    This book is a very touching book. The Author shares his own personal experience of losing 3 family members in an auto accident. There is an excellent chapter on God's grace and another on Forgiveness. I recommend this book to anyone. I was blessed to read this book, I felt drawn closer to the Lord.

    I bought this book thinking of people serving in lay counseling ministry but found it a great fit for our intern program for pastor and elder ministry.

    There is hope of a happy life after traumatic loss since reading this wonderful book. I downloaded the E-book and then purchased this hard copy for a friend who also went through a traumatic loss. Thanks Jerry Sittser for writing it, can't wait for your new book to come out!
