Experiencing loss tempts us to think God is distant and uncaring, but DEATH, HOPE & THE LAUGHTER OF GOD courageously insists something different. The author, fueled by questions surrounding the death of his daughter in a car accident, insists our darkest questions about what God is up to, and where God is as we go through pain, are simply the trails we must take to get to joy.
It is a deeply moving and theologically substantive work for anyone--but, in particular, anyone who has suffered the death of a loved one, the death of a marriage, the death of innocence, a relationship, or a dream. Ultimately, it winds up being a fresh and nuanced take on the oldest subject of all: suffering.
It's a book entitled, DEATH, HOPE & THE LAUGHTER OF GOD. Yes, an unlikely title about the unlikely path where God finds us.
