On November 3, 2020, Tim and Aileen Challies received the shocking news that their son Nick had died. A twenty-year-old student at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, he had been participating in a school activity with his fiancée, sister, and friends, when he fell unconscious and collapsed to the ground.
Despite the best efforts of those present, including students, a passing doctor, and paramedics, he remained unresponsive. His parents received the news at their home in Toronto and immediately departed for Louisville to be together as a family. While on the plane, Tim began to process his loss through writing. In Seasons of Sorrow, Tim, an author, and blogger, shares real-time reflections from the first year of grief—through the seasons from fall to summer—introducing readers to what he describes as the “ministry of sorrow.”
Seasons of Sorrow will benefit both those that are working through sorrow or those comforting others:
- See how God is sovereign over loss and that he is good in loss
- Discover how you can pass through times of grief while keeping your faith
- Learn how biblical doctrine can work itself out even in life’s most difficult situations
- Understand how it is possible to love God more after loss than you loved him before
An honest look at grief and fears, faith and hope. Combining personal narrative, sound theology, and beautiful writing, this is a book for anyone who has loved and lost.
