Hope Publishing House, 1990 - Počet stran: 115
A true classic on the meaning of hope when confronted by the death of the young.
For a decade people have been asking, "Where can I borrow, buy or get my hands on a copy of one of the best books ever written about sudden sorrow?"
Now available in an updated edition, this book is a wonderful guide for those who face the reorganization of their lives following the death of a loved one.
Susan Elizabeth Angell, 21, a Pomona College senior, was killed a few short weeks before she was to graduate as a violin major. Word reached the Angell family just as dawn broke over the San Bernardino mountains on Easter morning. Susan, driving back from a camping trip at the Grand Canyon in order to arrive in time to join the Easter festivities and enjoy the family dinner, had fallen asleep at the wheel.
Jim Angell's sermon was ready, but was his faith prepared for such tragic news? His story, a survival manual too long out of print, is finally available again.

Strana 89 - The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart : and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.
Strana 13 - We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives Who thinks most — feels the noblest — acts the best.
Strana 9 - The stars shall fade away, the sun himself Grow dim with age, and nature sink in years ; But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth, Unhurt amidst the war of elements, The wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds.
Strana 7 - And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, establish, and strengthen you.
Strana 62 - There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.
