Harsh Grief, Gentle Hope
Mary A. White
When Mary and Jerry White's only son was murdered, Mary found herself struggling with an unending stream of painful questions and a powerful, agonizing grief. In this book, she chronicles her search for answers that would help her make sense out of a senseless act. Even though loved ones left behind commonly feel that God has betrayed their trust, dealt with them unfairly, or abandoned them, He is actually nearer than ever. And, as Mary discovered, His desire is that in the midst of our rage, confusion, and pain, we would turn to Him for the comfort and compassion He alone can give. Harsh Grief, Gentle Hope is a story of great sadness and pain. But it is also an inspiring account of God's mercy, gentleness, and persistence as He continues to lead the Whites and their family toward hope and healing.
