The long-awaited companion to A Grace Disguised, this eloquently written reflection on hope, loss, and God's story of redemption will inspire and empower you. As Jerry Sittser writes, the plot line of our individual stories will differ, but the outcome will be the same---a life rich in meaning and conformity to Jesus Christ. And though our lives may contain some difficult chapters, they will end up being a story that brings us closer to the life of Jesus and His sanctifying work.

Twenty years ago, Jerry Sittser lost his daughter, wife, and mother in a car accident. He chronicled that tragic experience in A Grace Disguised, a book that has become a classic on the topic of grief and loss. Now he asks: How do we live meaningfully, even fruitfully, in this world and at the same time long for heaven? How do we respond to the paradox of being a new creature in Christ even though we dont always feel or act like one? How can we trust God is involved in our story when our circumstances seem to say he isnt? While A Grace Disguised explored how the soul grows through loss, A Grace Revealed brings the story of Sittsers family full circle, revealing Gods redeeming work in the midst of circumstances that could easily have destroyed them. As Sittser reminds us, our lives tell a good story after all. A Grace Revealed will helps us understand and trust that God is writing a beautiful story in our own lives.
