Trusting God Through Tears

Trusting God through Tears: A Story to Encourage I found this book to a true source of encouragment after the loss of our 19 year old son Aaron in an auto accident May 5, 2004. Mr. Burton's honesty and transparency with his feelings gave me hope that the pain would lessen as time went by. It also helped me to know that I wasn't crazy or of less faith just because I was experiencing such a traumatic crisis of my faith. As a man and Father I felt as though I was supposed to be able to hold it all together and stay strong for my family. I identified with Mr. Burton because of his openess of his feelings and being able to express his grief and the hope that is found only in God and His plan for our lives. I especially recommend this book for grieving parents. I have read many books on grief, if I could only choose one this would be my choice.

Growing through your grief -

This is a book that reaches out and holds your hand while you are suffering through the loss of a child. My wife and I have experienced this pain, when our seven-year-old daughter died in May 2000. No other book related so closely to what we were experiencing as grieving parents. Jehu Burton's book was truly revelant to us during our grieving process. Jehu showed us that we were not alone and the feelings that we had through grieving were normal. In his book, he forces you to answer some very difficult questions that only another grieving parent could ask. Answering these difficult questions forced us to grow and accept what we couldn't comprehend. We highly recommend this book for parents facing the ultimate tragedy, the loss of a child.

The End and Object of Grief

I read this book shortly after losing my son -- my only child -- at the age of thirteen. The book was IMMEDIATELY helpful, and I reread it several times. In fact, had I been limited to just one book besides the Bible, this book would have been my choice. It deals honestly and realistically with the pain of grief without being overindulgent. Solidly biblical, it points to Christ as the only source of true and lasting comfort. For there is an end to grief: an object, a direction. And grief will have had its greatest end when it ends in Christ. Therefore, I gratefully acknowledge the author for having helped me to survive the most difficult challenge of my life by pointing me to the only source of true and lasting comfort, Jesus Christ.

Spiritually healing

Jehu Thomas Burton offers countless "pearls" in this scripturally based study. His reflections are honest and sincere. Most importantly, Burton clearly illustrates that only God is God! This book is a definite must have for anyone who has experienced a death of a loved one.

A Blessing

Mr. Burton has opened his heart and mind and shared his most painful and reflective moments with the readers. It is comfort and empathy for those who have lost a family member, as well as a search for answers to difficult questions of faith.
