Synopsis:

An expanded edition of this classic book on grief and loss--with a new preface and epilogue

Loss came suddenly for Jerry Sittser. In an instant, a tragic car accident claimed three generations of his family: his mother, his wife, and his young daughter. While most of us will not experience such a catastrophic loss in our lifetime, all of us will taste it. And we can, if we choose, know as well the grace that transforms it.

A Grace Disguised plumbs the depths of sorrow, whether due to illness, divorce, or the loss of someone we love. The circumstances are not important; what we do with those circumstances is. In coming to the end of ourselves, we can come to the beginning of a new life--one marked by spiritual depth, joy, compassion, and a deeper appreciation of simple blessings.

Denise8, January 3, 2012 (view all comments by Denise8)
2011 was a rough year at our home, with deaths of friends and a family member, other family health crises. Finding this little treasure confirmed what I knew but had lost sight of: that great blessings may be discovered in even the worst of tragedies, and that we are not alone in suffering. The author lost his mother, wife and a child in a highway crash and his life was changed forever. His insights gained and the empathy for others living in crisis are beautifully crafted into words of encouragement, hope, resolve.
