The Gospels are full of encounters that made a profound impact on those who spoke with Jesus Christ. In the third instalment of the Encounters with Jesusseries, Timothy Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times-bestselling author of The Reason for God, shows how those encounters can still have a deep effect on us today. The story of Lazarus is one of the most famous in the Gospel of John, and in The Grieving Sisters, Keller uses it to help answer life's deep questions: What can we do to improve our condition? Who can put us right? Who is Jesus Christ? Through an insightful examination of biblical passages, Keller reveals Jesus' own answers to these questions. This and the other nine in the series make up the complete Encounters With Jesus: Unexpected Answers to Life's Biggest Questions.

Sister Grief Defined and Conquered in Jesus

In my case, it took me about 35 years to go through the grieving process and when I did, I finally stopped blaming myself for the death of my siblings. Had my parents talked about them openly, many aspects of my life would have been ...

When a family member dies, often the response of children is overlooked or underestimated. This very important book makes tangible the range of emotions felt but not completely understood by children for the loss of a parent or sibling. It offers welcome channels of response that can help survivors to not only understand their feelings but also come to grips with the loss and get on positively with their lives. Barbara Snook offers insights into a range of people’s experiences with the loss of a family member. It normalizes the variety of experiences of grieving, that it is not a linear process, not something to get over, rather the impacts are lifelong and require developing ways to live with the grief. – Pauline Brown, registered psychologist This book is like a cocoon. It is beautiful from start to finish. The growth and transformation about such grief is anticipated and transparent yet mesmerising through its entire unfolding. It holds the reader, in the same way that siblings who have lost (and actually anyone who has lost a loved one) – need to be held and need to be seen, as they transit their own unique process. – Jenni van der Schoot, psychotherapist I recognise myself in the pages written by the brave contributors to this book, as will other readers who struggle with the complex and conflicting emotions of losing a loved sibling. Realising that others also struggle with grief and have feelings of guilt is a repeated thread in the stories that weave readers together, giving them the realisation that they are not the odd one out, but that their reactions are “normal” in a heart-rending situation. – Tilly Brasch, author of No Middle Name

Caring for their mothers at the end of their lives and grieving for them after their deaths brought them together. Seven women from diverse racial, cultural, and religious traditions with differing sexual orientations and life experiences became seven “sisters in mourning,” meeting to share their grief and to remember together—not only their mothers but themselves as daughters. This book is a rich compilation of narratives that emerged through vulnerable conversations—a spiritual, emotional, and existential exploration of the complexities of caring and grieving. As their grief transformed over time, and their friendship deepened, their understanding of who their mothers were and the nuances of their relationships with them continued to evolve. Sisters in Mourning invites readers to a journey of healing and insight. With contributions from: Barbara Breitman Cari Jackson Linda Jaramillo Laura O'Loughlin Kathleen T. Talvacchia

If you ever wanted to walk through the Gospels with a friend and discuss how this pertains to your life, here is the perfect opportunity. Come read about Jesus through the lenses of the twenty-first century and relate to life experiences along the way. If you don’t know much about the Bible and don’t want to ask, this is the perfect venue for you. There will be some “ah ha” moments, some “Kleenex” moments, and some funny moments, all drawn within the boundaries of Christian attitudes. You will find some chapters that are purely personal and some that are almost commentary in character, all pointing to themes of nondenominational doctrine to interest you, inform you, entertain you, and encourage you to go further on your own path. Dear Readers, “A good look into a woman’s life with its ups and downs, and always followed by Scripture that gives each experience a higher meaning. All women can relate with different parts of Jody’s memoirs, and combined with insightful Scriptures, we get a comforting reminder of how we are provided for by God in Jesus’ name.” —Priscilla Marsh, Laguna Beach, California Dear Readers, “I have just begun reading the manuscript for The Path, and what a blessing it is! I have already cried, smiled, nodded, and laughed. Thank you, Jody, for 25 years of friendship!” —Shirley Newis, Calgary, Alberta

New Folklore Researches Folk verse

... and light cakes bring ye to her , That I may show the Comforter to all unhappy mothers , To all the grieving sisters , and to all the grieving brothers ; That they go not to hang themselves , nor take a knife to slay them .
