Presentation

How the soul grows through loss

In an instant, a tragic traffic accident takes the lives of three generations of women: a mother, a wife and a daughter. Although most of us will not experience a similar loss in our lifetime, we will all inevitably experience grief and death at some point in our lives. In telling his story, Jerry Sittser reminds us that it is not the experience of grief that is crucial in our life, but rather how we respond to grief. This reaction will affect the quality, direction and scope of our life.

This reaction will affect the quality, direction and scope of our life. The author tells us that the power of the grieving response is about the choices we make, the grace we receive, and ultimately the transformation we undergo.

Touchant et profond

Un livre pour pleurer avec ceux qui pleurent. L'auteur livre son cœur et nous ouvre les portes de l'intimité de sa douleur. Il a exprimé avec lucidité la réalité des enjeux de nos pertes. Il démontre d'une manière très articulée que le processus des pertes n'est pas une route facile, il y a beaucoup de tâtonnement et de soupirs auprès de Dieu. Un livre pour apprivoiser les pertes, pour accompagner dans les deuils de la vie.
