Overview

With articulate words, Tommy Tenney helps lead us past tragedy to that place of trust. After reading this book, you will know what to do and know what to say. Most people-including Christians-avoid brokenness and personal failure at all costs. They will deny the truth to avoid pain. Yet tragedy visits every generation; hardship touches every life. The only question, then, is how will we respond. God promises to be near the brokenhearted. As Tenney puts it, "God is waiting to meet us on our way home from the funeral. The One who said, 'Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted,' fully intends to comfort us personally if we make the effort to detour from our road of grief to search for Him." Many believers first turned to God in the moment of crisis. Trust and Tragedy shows them how to find Him there again. For "whenever there is earthly brokenness, there is always heavenly openness."
