Overview


Well-known author, psychologist and priest Fr. Benedict Groeschel draws on his own years of personal experiences in dealing with people's problems, tragedies and "darkness" as he offers help and guidance for any Christian troubled or burdened by life. If you are struggling with fear, anxiety, grief, loss of loved ones, hurt, anger or anything that makes life difficult or the road through it dark, then this book was written for you. Fr. Benedict offers practical suggestions on how to keep going and even grow with the help of God's grace, even when this help seems remote. The Christian response to the problem of evil and suffering began with the cross of Christ. Our answer is inseparable from the cross-from Jesus' own encounter with evil and his triumph over it. In this light, Fr. Benedict recalls some of our most frequently encountered sorrows and griefs: the failure of friends, financial and personal insecurity, the failure of some in the Church, our own inconsistent behaviors and weaknesses, and the death of loved ones. As we examine these painful experiences, he shows that we can find solutions in the Gospel and in the lives of saints, heroes, and very brave ordinary people.

    Peace in the Dark Night

    I found this book during a very dark time, and found myself reading it slowly, many times in tears... often I would have to stop, and pause. Sometimes something rang so true that I wanted to look up and shout out to someone, to show someone - "Look here, did you see what he wrote here!" - my copy is destroyed, I highlighted and underlined and scribbled in the margins all the way through! It is a jewel of a book, I can't even begin to tell you. We all have "stuff" happen in our lives - tragedies, difficulties, and just plain hard times - and Fr. Groeschel writes with such caring, candor, and a sense of empathy, that he really helps you not only gain a new sense of perspective, but regain that sense that God sees you, holds you close, knows what you're going through, and that you truly are not alone. I cannot praise this book highly enough!

    Big help for hard times

    Father Groeschel understands personal hardship and suffering in a way like no other. This book helped me to understand that I'm not alone and we all have hardships. We simply cannot avoid them. This book has showed me how to endure, not avoid personal sufferings. God bless you Father. I love you.
