God's Healing for Life's Losses: How to Find Hope When You're Hurting
I’m excited to announce the upcoming (April 2010) release by BMH Books of my fifth book: God’s Healing for Life’s Losses: How to Find Hope When You’re Hurting.
I’ll be sharing more about the book in the coming days. Here’s the current wording for the back cover.
From Denial to Candor: Blessed Are Those Who Mourn
From Anger to Complaint: A Lament for Your Loss
From Bargaining to Crying Out to God: I Surrender All
From Depression to Comfort: God Comes
From Regrouping to Waiting: When God Says “Not Yet”
From Deadening to Wailing: Pregnant with Hope
From Despairing to Weaving: Spiritual Mathematics
From Digging Cisterns to Worshipping: Finding God
How do you deal with suffering and despair; the times when life seems so overwhelming that you just want to give up? Bob Kellemen has the answers. If you’re looking for tired clichés (“Just put on a happy face”), impersonal academic discourse, and worldly wisdom, then this is not the book for you. But if you want a thoroughly biblical and intensely honest examination of suffering from someone who has walked the path from “hurt to hope in Christ,” then God’s Healing for Life’s Losses is just the book for you.
—Ian Jones, Ph.D., Chairman, Counseling Department, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
“God’s Healing for Life’s Losses takes on traditional thoughts about grief and loss and turns them upside down. Dr. Kellemen takes us down to take us up as he develops a biblical theology of suffering and hope. There is a refreshing honesty about the pain of loss and the permission to be real with God and others as we embrace the mourning process together. This book is biblical, personal and healing; I highly recommend it.”
—Garrett Higbee, Psy. D., President, Twelve Stones Ministries; Executive Director, Harvest Biblical Soul Care
