      In the spirit of Kate Bowler s Everything Happens for a Reason and Other Lies I ve Believed and Soong Chan Rah s Prophetic Lament, Aubrey Sampson reminds us that things aren t always resolved quickly or easily and God doesn t always answer our prayers the way we expect or want Aubrey helps those of us who can t shake chronic pain, illness, infertility, disappointment etc to find comfort and companionship in Christ Excellent book Devoid of pat answers or shame.

      So much wisdom in this book, whether you are the person suffering through unspeakable grief and pain or the walking with someone else in that season After receiving an advanced copy of the book, I read it quickly with a number of friends in mind who are suffering through the toughest things in life But then Aubrey s words spoke to me with the language of lament for losses I still carry Hers is a hopeful message.
