Product Description

When Veldt's 13-year-old daughter died in 2006, he was plagued by doubt. Is there a God? Is what I've always believed true? Turning to Psalm 103, he found peace. Join him on a poignant journey as he discovers that seasons of sorrow can teach us more about God's love and compassion than times of joy.

Publisher's Description

When Luke Veldt’s thirteen-year-old daughter died suddenly in 2006, he questioned the faith he had known from childhood: "Is it all true? Is there a God? Is my daughter with Him?" Despite his doubts, Luke turned to the Bible for answers to his questions and comfort for his grief. In Psalm 103, which he read every day for a year, Luke discovered a kindred spirit in King David, who knew what it was like to be in the pit. Luke also discovered that he was learning more about God in his sorrow than he ever had in times of joy.

Author Bio

Luke Veldt is a church-planting missionary who served in Romania for ten years and then in Pamplona, Spain, for four.  He and his wife, Jodi, have six children.

Editorial Reviews

"Luke Veldt's book is unique. It is the honest expression of his grief and doubts with nothing watered down or hidden in euphemisms. This experience is not presented in a 'preachy' manner but as a pilgrim discovering the adequacy of God's grace. Many books written by mourners for other mourners are often too sentimental, too sermonic, or too idealistic. Luke has avoided these extremes and kept a balanced approach."

Reading this book is a tearful experience.  The author maintains a balance among three things--his own story of suffering and grace, an illumination of the Bible's teaching on suffering and its conquest, and the stories of fellow sufferers whom God sent on the same journey of suffering that the Veldt family experienced.  In its own way the book is a triumph of research and scholarship.  The book does a masterful job of chronicling the author's grief and recovery, and it can serve as a guide to anyone undergoing a similar experience.  Beyond that, the narrative thread in the book provides a captivating story for any reader.

Leland Ryken, Co-editor of The ESV Literary Study Bible


This book is every bit as sensitive and insightful as C.S. Lewis’s A Grief Observed.  However, it gives you the added enrichment of the author’s record of his pilgrimage in Psalm 103 as he and his family walked through the valley together.  I have read scores of books on comforting the bereaved, and this one is outstanding.  If you are grieving or seeking to comfort someone who is, join the Veldt family and discover what God and His Word can do for the broken-hearted.  Jesus came to ‘comfort all who mourn’ (Isa. 61:2), and as you read these pages, you will better understand how He does it.  Every pastor and care-giver must read this book!
