So We Do Not Lose Heart: Biblical Wisdom for All Our Days
This book contains 83 short reflections on passages of scripture which address, from various perspectives, the perennial human problem of mortality. A prominent theme in these reflections is, therefore, an invitation to trust the goodness of God in situations where we experience loss of control and the consequent need to rely on a higher power for love and support. These reflections also remind us that reliance on the goodness of God need not be a desperate last resort but can in fact be a joyful discovery that will illuminate the whole landscape of our lives.
