Glimpsing Resurrection

Available

Description

In Glimpsing Resurrection, Deanna A. Thompson combines recent trauma research with compelling first-person narrative to provide insight into the traumatic dimensions of living with a serious illness. Her aim is to help those who are ill and those who care for and minister to them deepen their understanding of how best to offer support.

oeThe tendency for Christians to move almost immediately from death to proclamations of new life risks alienating those for whom healing and new life seem out of reach, � says Thompson. Glimpsing Resurrection focuses less on the oewhy � to help readers instead come to terms with the oehow � of living with a serious disease. In particular, Thompson provides a framework and concrete suggestions for how to be a church where those who are undone by illness can be undone, as well as a place that can love and support them to hope.
