To a Christian, the death of an unbeliever is heartbreaking. But even in the darkness of grief, there can be light. Will Dobbie’s nuanced examination of the hope found in the Bible offers more than shallow comfort.
The topic of the death of non–believers is often a taboo amongst Christians. So often we don’t know what to say to comfort friends who are grieving. Where do we find hope when all seems hopeless? The answer is in the character of the God who reveals Himself in the pages of the Bible, who shows Himself to be love.
With the tone of a pastor, who knows how hard it is to lose a friend and not know whether they belong to Christ, Willie Dobbie affirms that we don’t need to suppress grief. He directs our eyes towards the One who knows all things, who feels our heartache, and who Himself grieves.
As human beings, we cannot know another’s heart. God alone knows; he does not ask us to bear the burden of such knowledge. We can trust the One who heals the broken–hearted and binds up their wounds.
If you are mourning a loved one, this book offers not shallow consolation, but real comfort based in the truth of God’s Word.
