“This book exemplifies engagement in faith-based meaning-making and theological reflection in the wake of tragic loss… Many will find in this book permission to grieve, lament, and ask difficult questions.”
Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology

“Through Brady’s story, we are witnesses to a comprehensive theological reflection on suffering, grief and hope. It is a lament that moves both Brady and his readers to praise and hope, while rooted in the world where unexplained suffering visits the innocent and undeserving.” —The Presbyterian Outlook

“Brady’s sensitivity to his grief and his varied background provides something for a wide audience. The book is both intensely personal and clear-eyed, unflinching yet hopeful.” —Library Journal

“Bible scholar Brady mines scripture and his own experiences of grief in this touching testament to the value of hope after a tragedy…. This thoughtful and heartfelt inquiry into biblical lessons on suffering will satisfy any theologically inclined Christian.” —Publishers Weekly
