About "Room of Marvels"
In one tragic blow after another, accomplished Christian writer Tim Hudson lost his mother, his close friend, and his two-year-old daughter. Now he's on the brink of losing his faith.^Room of Marvels takes readers on a silent spiritual retreat with Tim where he is swept up in a dream vision of heaven and given a guided tour by those he has lost. Reminiscent of the C. S. Lewis classic, The Great Divorce, the book carries a contemporary voice that made Library Journal declare it "a good companion to Mitch Albom's The Five People You Meet in Heaven."^Remarkably, Room of Marvels mirrors author James Bryan Smith's own heart-wrenching season of loss when his mother (Wanda), close friend ("Awesome God" singer Rich Mullins), and two-year-old daughter (Madeline) passed away within months of each other.^Updated with a new cover design and epilogue by Smith, the 2007 edition of Room of Marvels will continue to comfort those touched by grief and stir the hunger for heaven in every reader.

This is a fantastic book for those with an issue with death of a loved one. Very uplifting. Very emotional but not depressing.
