Facing Lonelinessby J Oswald Sanders
Synopses & Reviews
Whether it results from death of a spouse or loved one, from unemployment or divorce, from age or other circumstances, loneliness confronts most of us at some time during our life. In Facing Loneliness the author provides both biblical and practical guidelines for managing this devastating emotion and experience.
J. Oswald Sanders, who experienced the poignancy of loneliness in his own life, shows you how to identify the symptoms and causes of loneliness and how to deal with the heart of the issue--the lonely person's lack of intimacy. He offers hope and practical wisdom as he encourages and challenges you to take specific steps to overcome the unpleasant effects of being lonely.
"I know there is no simple or single answer to the problem, no glib solution...Loneliness is a complex phenomenon, and different types of loneliness require different approaches... But the resources available, both from God and from fellow men and women, are more abundant than we realize...Furthermore, loneliness can be the starting point of a new journey toward moral and spiritual maturity."
Writing from his personal experience, author J. Oswald Sanders provides encouragement to those who find themselves lonely, estranged from others, or feeling deserted or left behind.
