Product Description

(PUBFortress)Suffering is universal, but how we handle it goes a long way in determining who we will become. Arden and Hughes, following the Pauline/Augustinian tradition viewed through a Lutheran lens, sensitively handle such tough issues as illness, loss, fear, violence, and failure, then offer three sample sermons. 176 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

Centering on five particular situations of suffering--loss, illness, violence, fear, and failure--this book suggests ways in which a pastor can preach to parishioners who are experiencing trauma. Three sample sermons illustrate how to preach on God's gracious activity, while avoiding "psychologizing the text" and reducing the gospel to cheap therapy for individual problems.
