Review:

Night Wrestling is an important book about big issues, the kind of deep, unsettling questions that can threaten faith and rob us of peace. It's about unsolved problems, interrupted dreams, relationship tangles, tenacious and painful memories. It's about the daily rub of gritty reality against our tender spirits and emotions. But it's also about the reality of grace, the blessings of peace and understanding, and most of all, about the gift of God's presence in the midst of it all. Night Wrestling reminds us that Jacob's struggle was not for nothing. He was marked and changed forever by his encounter with the Holy One. And yet it was precisely through his wrestling that Jacob received the blessing he struggled for. Some questions must be lived through rather than answered or solved. The hard questions really do have, if not answers, then ultimate blessings. God really is trustworthy and lovingly present all the moments of our lives -- even when we find ourselves wrestling in the dark. Night Wrestling is as well written as it is insightful and inspiring. -- Midwest Book Review

From Library Journal:

Williams's central theme is based on the inspiration and meaning she draws from the Genesis story of Jacob wrestling with an angel of God. Jacob's physical combat with the angel is symbolic of the spiritual warfare and powerful transformation that occur in each person who struggles to transcend human limitations in the quest for God. Williams identifies with Jacob's night wrestling, a battle that begins in spiritual darkness and solitude. Williams has chosen a powerful image to focus these reflections about meaning and faith in Christian life. Unfortunately, her writing style is often uneven and prosaic, while occasionally insightful, and does not do justice to her message. A marginal purchase.
