From the Back Cover
An expanded edition of this classic book on grief and loss--with a new preface and epilogue
Loss came suddenly for Jerry Sittser. In an instant, a tragic car accident claimed three generations of his family: his mother, his wife, and his young daughter. While most of us will not experience such a catastrophic loss in our lifetime, all of us will taste it. And we can, if we choose, know as well the grace that transforms it.
A Grace Disguised plumbs the depths of sorrow, whether due to illness, divorce, or the loss of someone we love. The circumstances are not important; what we do with those circumstances is. In coming to the end of ourselves, we can come to the beginning of a new life--one marked by spiritual depth, joy, compassion, and a deeper appreciation of simple blessings.

I, too, am finding the most surprising thing is how I have such sorrow, and at the same time, so much joy...I know it is because of Jesus. I've been a Christian for over 30 years. I'm not surprised that He gives grace and comfort, but I do marvel at the extent of it.
At the end, Jerry's comments about choosing to leave a good heritage was a challenge to me. I want to choose well, and have my part in God's larger "story" lived out in a way that glorifies the Savior....
I am sure we have given away dozens if not scores of copies of this book in the years since; most recipients have told us it has also become their favorite book on processing loss.
