John Claypool had been a pastor for almost two decades, ministering to others who suffered through the loss of loved ones, when loss hit home with the death of his eight-year-old daughter. In Tracks of a Fellow Struggler, Rev. Claypool shares his own journey through the darkness of heartbreaking grief through four extraordinary sermons. The first was delivered just eleven days after his daughter’s diagnosis of leukemia, the second after her first major relapse nine months later, and the third weeks after her death. The final sermon—an inspiring reflection on the process of grieving—was preached three years later.
Loss is something we must all cope with, and one of the greatest spiritual challenges is sustaining faith when life seems most unfair, sometimes tragic. With a depth of compassion born of his own personal experience, the author of Mending the Heart brings emotional comfort and spiritual strength to anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one.
