Stories from the Edge
Full Product Description
Where is God in the midst of suffering? How do people find strength and comfort in times of terrible adversity? Award-winning writer Greg Garrett addresses these questions and others as he helps readers grapple with the question of where God can be found in times of tragedy. He explores the theological themes of biblical stories and American myths and discusses how these stories have shaped our beliefs about God. He further examines what these foundational narratives reveal about our understanding of God, how they inform how we live our lives, and how we experience God's presence in the midst of grief and suffering. This well-written volume is engaging reading for clergy, chaplains, pastoral counselors, and all who must find the courage and faith to support individuals and families in times of suffering and grief.
Stories from the Edge by Greg Garrett was published by Westminster John Knox in September 2008 and is our 50081st best seller. The ISBN for Stories from the Edge is 9780664232047.

Stories From the EdgeMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
Greg Garrett is among other things a lay preacher within the Episcopal church in USA. In writing this book he is specifically writing as an American to other Americans, but for the British reader it is none the worse for that. I found his way of expressing his themes clear, easy to read and to understand. His intention is to help anyone suffering, either with illness or injury themselves or possibly involved with a sufferer in a multitude of ways. Using his experience as a seminarian working as a hospital chaplain as part of his training, he uses some of his experiences there, and in his own life previously, to discuss how we so often see God working or not working for us here on earth. Somehow pushing God into a box of our own shaping wrought by the civilisation we have been conditioned by during our lives. As he works through the book he tries to widen our perceptions to, and a greater understanding ‘that there are stories in which suffering persists – but so does faith’
