    • Recovering From Losses In Life

      $30.99

      Life is marked by a variety of losses, says certified trauma specialist H. Norman Wright. Some are life-changing, such as leaving home, the effects of natural disasters or war, the death of a loved one, or divorce. Others are subtle, such as changing jobs, moving, or a broken friendship. But whether readers encounter family, personal, or community disaster, there is always potential for change, growth, new insight, understanding, and refinement.

      Writing from his own experience, Wright covers such issues as the meaning of grief, blaming God, and learning how to express and share in times of loss.

    • Louder Song : Listening For Hope In The Midst Of Lament (Unabridged)

      $24.99

      Lament helps us hear God’s louder song.

      When you’re in the midst of suffering, you want answers for the unanswerable, resolutions to the unresolvable. You want to tie up pain in a pretty little package and hide it under the bed, taking it out only when you feel strong enough to face it. But grief won’t be contained. Grief disobeys. Grief explodes. In one breath, you may be able to say that God’s got this and all will be well. In the next, you might descend into fatalism. No pretending. Here, you are raw before God, an open wound.

      There is a pathway through this suffering. It’s not easy, but God will use it to lead you toward healing. This path is called lament. Lament leads us between the Already and the Not Yet. Lament minds the gap between current hopelessness and coming hope. Lament anticipates new creation but also acknowledges the painful reality of now. Lament recognizes the existence of evil and suffering?without any sugarcoating?while simultaneously declaring that suffering will not have the final say.

      In the midst of your darkest times, you will discover that lament leads you back to a place of hope?not because lamenting does anything magical, but because God sings a louder song than suffering ever could, a song of renewal and restoration.

      Additional Info
      John Albert Baxter no longer knows nor hopes that there is something lying beyond the fragile body that has held him captive for the past few years. Hopeless days and nights accompanied by an unabated bitterness cause him to forget the God he once knew. Family members come and go, too saddened to stay long enough to keep him much company. Death looms, but is it something to be feared or welcomed? John wants nothing more than to be released from his emotional and physical pain, but he does not know if God will continue to forsake him. But it is the younger family members that fear his death the most. What happens when John dies? Will the God he once put his faith in really take care of him after all he has been through on earth? What lies ahead is greater than any of their mortal eyes can perceive in Heaven’s City Limits.
