"Jehu Burton's gripping account of his young son's death offers the hope of Christ in the midst of incredible suffering. This book provides support for all who endure loss and experience grief."--Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Religious Studies, Westmont College"It has been said that to experience the death of a beloved young, healthy child is to suffer the insufferable. Jehu Burton takes the reader through such devastating grief, but tells how our Heavenly Father's love is sufficient for even so great a tragedy. God's sacrifice of His only beloved son was harder to bear than we can ever know, because He was the one sinless Person who ever lived, yet died that sinners might have eternal life through faith in Him. A moving, engaging, and very helpful book for all who are acquainted with grief."--D. James Kennedy, Ph.D., senior minister, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church"Jehu Burton expresses the feelings, thoughts, questions, aches, and ambushes every bereaved parent experiences. His analysis of his experience provides thoughtful, biblical insight for survival in the 'foreign land' of grief. This is not a book for the newly bereaved. It will be a source of strength six months to a year after a child has died."--David W. Wiersbe, author"Each chapter is a tight, passionate bear hug that assures grieving parents that they are not crazy--just heartbroken. This book will encourage them to lean into their pain and find a new level of normal as they face each day without their child and learn to trust God through their tears."--Sharon and Chuck Betters, authors, Treasures of Faith and Treasures of Encouragement"This story is a testimony to the grace of God in the life of one man at the time of his deepest grief, the death of a child. His faith in the sovereignty of God is the only way we can endure such tragedy and maintain our sanity. I have been there. I know. Read it!"--C. Everett Koop, M.D., Sc.D."I have watched Jehu and his family walk the path of deepest pain. In this book Jehu presents his honest emotions and thoughts regarding the death of his son, but we can also see him emerge triumphant in his faith. I highly recommend that every grieving parent read this book."--Marilyn Willett Heavilin, author, Roses in December and Grief Is a Family Affair"As a father of two sons killed in an automobile accident and a grieving and at times bewildered parent, this book helped me to gain a clearer concept of trusting the wisdom of God in the results that he allows in our lives. On a number of occasions as I read this book, I found myself saying, 'Yes, Lord, You are God and I must trust You.'"--Ed Lasko, pastor, Middletown Baptist Church
