9781881273691: The Light That Never Dies: A Story of Hope in the Shadows of Grief

I cannot remember the last time I was moved as deeply by a book . . . I will never look at human suffering the same way.
— Peggy Wehmeyer, host, "The World Vision Report," former religion correspondent, ABC News

In the prime of his life, William Hendricks lost his wife to breast cancer. Yet he could say, "Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good." In a warm, gentle style, Bill shares God's goodness and how it manifests itself in a variety of ways, including deeply personal pain.


A powerful book—more about life than death . . . I encourage you not to miss the journey.
— Kathy Peel, author, and contributing editor, Family Circle magazine

[This book was] forged in the furnace of adversity. The power and light that will lift your soul from this book merge the rare combination of intellectual honesty and clear theological thinking poured through a broken heart. You'll be glad you read it.
— Chip Ingram, teaching pastor, Living on the Edge radio

“... If you are in the midst of a trial or are desperately in need of hope, this is a must read.
— Mario Zandstra, president and CEO, Pine Cove Camps

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

I approach grief as a Christian, and I write from my perspective as a Christian. However, this book is not just for Christians. It's for anyone who knows grief, loss, pain, or suffering. Because the experience of those sorrows is universal. I recognize that not every reader will share my beliefs. That's fine. My hope is that regardless of your faith, religion, or spirituality, you will benefit from my experience. Because should you ever find yourself in the House of Mourning, you'll discover a perfect cross section of the world. We've got people with all kinds of beliefs and disbeliefs about God here. And the interesting thing about mourning is that it more or less forces out what people really hold to and hold on to.
