In 1993, Smyth & Helwys released the book "Learning to Dream Again" by noted pastor, teacher, and writer Charles Bugg. The book told of Bugg's son David, whose malignant brain tumor sent David and his entire family down a path filled with the pain of medical tests, surgeries, and radiation, as well as the disappointment of dreams which may never be fulfilled. The response to Bugg's story as told in "Learning to Dream Again" was overwhelming. Fourteen years later, Bugg has updated the story in this new book, "Lingering Grief." Not only does this new book continue the story of David and his family, but it also considers the stories of countless others who connected to the earlier book and who shared with the author their stories of dealing with the lingering grief of their pain and, indeed, learning to dream again.
