Publisher's Description

Gold Mining in the Pit of Sorrow is a chronicle of grief and healing following the loss of a child. Mr. Gaskill shares openly and honestly about his struggles at the loss of his youngest son. It is a record of a journey of faith wrestling with doubt, of comfort in the midst of incredible sorrow, and of healing through the power and kindness of God toward the broken hearted. It is the author's prayer that this volume will be a source of understanding and comfort to those who have lost a child and to those who would support them. If you are a friend to someone who has lost a child and you have been searching for something to hand them which will help, even if just a little, this may be the book for you to give. The author found that in the aftermath of his own son's death, it was the more intense literature in the field of death, dying, and grief that carried the most healing. This book makes no attempt to sugar coat this experience, so please ask for wisdom before you give this to a bereaved person. William Gaskill was ordained as a pastor in the Presbyterian Church USA in 1978. He received his Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey. In 1994, he received his Doctor of Ministry from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia. He continues to serve as pastor at First Presbyterian Church in Merchantville, New Jersey. Mr. Gaskill continues to share his life with his wife Jean. Together they have three children, Mark, Julia, and Jonathan, whose death at age 24 has inspired the writing of this volume. Those wishing to contact Rev. Gaskill may do so through his congregation's website at
