Product Description

In Lament for a Son, well-known philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff writes not as a scholar but as a loving father grieving the loss of his son. In brief vignettes he explores with a moving honesty and intensity, all the facets of his experience of this irreversible loss. A profoundly faith-affirming book, this book gives eloquent expression to a grief that is at once unique and universal - a grief for an individual, irreplaceable person.

Publisher's Description

To those who are left behind, the death of a friend or family member is a beginning as much as an end. For the author of this book, who lost his 25-year-old son Eric in a mountain climbing accident, it meant the start of a long, unwanted journey to come to terms with his grief -- and the "unanswered questions" of his wounded spirit. Lament for a Son avoids easy answers about suffering. Its honest depiction of one man's struggle will help open the floodgates for those who cannot find words for their own pain.

Henri J. M. Nouwen

A true gift to those who grieve and those who, in love, reach out to comfort.

Walter Wangerin

Wolterstorff inquires us Job inquired. He is honest and utterly resistant to cheap answers about death...and to any answers at all...He looks, without foolish giddiness or delusion, but in faith, to the day that Death shall be overcome -- and he takes his place beside all who suffer. A miracle.
