Tending the Tree of Life: Preaching and Worship through Reproductive Loss and Adoption

by Richard W. Voelz
 
The number of women and men struggling with issues of reproductive loss has greatly increased in recent decades. However, there is a scarcity of resources pastors and church leaders that address these matters. As a result, the church has been lacking as a place where frank, honest, and theologically informed discussion about these difficult realities might take place.

Overview

The number of women and men struggling with issues of reproductive loss has greatly increased in recent decades. However, there is a scarcity of resources pastors and church leaders that address these matters. As a result, the church has been lacking as a place where frank, honest, and theologically informed discussion about these difficult realities might take place. In Tending the Tree of Life, pastor and scholar Richard W. Voelz speaks to this need, bringing to the discussion a level of sensitivity and wisdom that he has acquired through careful study and personal experience. By taking seriously the biblical witness and the potential for church congregations to navigate difficult but increasingly necessary conversations together, Voelz empowers his readers to serve as communities of healing and hope.
