A Foot in Two Worlds

Vincent D Homan

Paperback 2013-01-31

Publisher Description

After the untimely death of his son, a pastor learns he must find a balance between grief and Christian hope, ultimately discovering that embracing one does not diminish the other. He learns grief is not an illness one must recover from, but a journey one must walk. A Foot in Two Worlds examines the intense grief that accompanies tragic loss and demonstrates how it interacts with our perception of goodness, innocence, and God. Each chapter explores the conflicting life experiences that tragedy or loss often forces onto people who trust in a good God. Grief is a nondiscriminatory offender, striking the hearts and homes of its victims. This story welcomes the grief-stricken to a place of middle ground, where faith, doubt, hope, and loss coexist--starting the move from innocence to a hopeful reality. Of the many books on grief, few offer permission to the bereaved to develop a new normalcy by embracing both grief and hope. A Foot in Two Worlds targets several significant needs. It compassionately reaches out to the entire community of the bereaved with special grace offered to brokenhearted parents. It gives a deeper look into the heart of grief and mourning. Finally, through stories and scripture, the book offers direction and understanding to those who provide care to family members and friends who suffer tragic loss.
