あらすじ・解説

With vulnerability and honesty, Jerry Sittser walks through his own grief and loss to show that new life is possible - one marked by spiritual depth, joy, compassion, and a deeper appreciation of simple blessings.

Loss came suddenly for Jerry Sittser. In an instant, a tragic car accident claimed three generations of his family: his mother, his wife, and his young daughter. While most of us will not experience such a catastrophic loss in our lifetime, all of us will taste it. And we can, if we choose, know the grace that transforms it.

A Grace Disguised plumbs the depths of our sorrows, whether due to illness, divorce, or the loss of someone we love. The circumstances are not important; what we do with those circumstances is. In coming to the end of ourselves, we can come to the beginning of a new life.

Inspiring book for Christians who experience significant loss.

This is a very thoughtful and inspiring book written to people in general dealing with grief, with a Christian emphasis.

I was pleased to hear the author, at least throughout the beginning and middle of the book, acknowledge randomness and chance in the world especially in his significant experience of loss. However, I believe it was in chapter 12 that he claimed God's sovereignty of "total control" of all events of life. This appeal to sovereignty was not an isolated event and in following chapters he made the same claims. I hardly think appealing to meticulous sovereignty is helpful to non-Christians and even for many Christians this is controversial, though we have come to understand that this provides them with a level of comfort in their grief. I'd much rather have had him offer an explanation of how grief can be endured in light of God NOT in "total control."

Integral in my own grieving & healing

What did you love best about A Grace Disguised?

I downloaded this book when I heard my Pastor mention it in a sermon last year. I was going through the beginning stages of my separation/divorce and was experiencing tremendous grief, sadness and pain. This book really validated my feelings regarding the whirlwind of emotion I was experiencing and helped heal my heart and help me understand the journey through ANY kind of loss. I would recommend this book to anyone suffering from a loss in their life. This book offers comfort through Jerry Sittser's own personal experience as well as his belief in God and the bible as well as other spiritual teachings. Definitely instrumental in my own grieving process.

What about Tom Parks’s performance did you like?

His voice and tone were very comforting and reassuring.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I cried quite a bit. This book really touched my heart... it helped me acknowledge my emotions, validate them, sit with them and move through them with peace and understanding.

Profound and helpful.

I needed what was in this book. I even ordered a written copy so that I could see it in writing. After the tragic death of our 31 year old son, I was devastated. I needed to hear survival from someone who has lived a similar catastrophic, tragic and unjustified loss. Only his loss was threefold. I cannot fathom.
I needed to hear how Jerry handled failure of the justice system as well as the reality of Gods true mercy and grace. He put words to the reality of just how real gods mercy and grace are in our lives. I realize none of us have received our just reward in this life. We could not bear the weight of our own sin so Jesus paid it all.
Jerry actually says he has had a good life after the tragedy. I believe him. So maybe there is hope that one day I too will know that same experience.
