That's my son - three words that swept away everything familiar from Robin Farnsworth's life. An emergency room nurse at work one night, she identifies Spencer, her 21-year-old son, minutes after he was pronounced dead. He was the unintended target of a murder.
Reaching back to 1964, when Robin lost her brother, The Greater Weight of Glory is a series of small stories; tragic, tender, wild and wondrous but all pointing to the universal question: "Where is God, anyway?" The answers are unexpected - in a church that passes popcorn buckets, in a beach parking lot, in the kitchen of a hopeful single mother of three sons. But when Spencer is murdered, Robin begins a journey through unspeakable pain and darkness, discovering not only where God is, but also who He is.
This is more than one person's story - it is a tapestry of brokenness and small courage, of lessons in love and letting go, and of the power of forgiveness and simple faith that walks on earth and touches heaven.
