A woman in her forties dies from cancer and leaves behind her husband and two daughters. Any one of us would struggle to make sense of this tragedy. Is there any comfort, any consolation, any hope to be found when there is a loss such as this?
In a sermon delivered at the memorial service for this beloved woman, Dr. William Edgar anticipates five questions that are often asked in the face of such a heartbreak, and relays God’s answers to these good and honest questions.
With both striking simplicity and profound biblical depth, Edgar ministers to this family—and to all of us who are not excluded from the sorrow of death and dying.
