A Time To Mourn

By Will Dobbie

“… comfort is the one thing you cannot get by looking for it. If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end: if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth – only… wishful thinking… and, in the end, despair.”

– C. S. Lewis

Book Summary

This is a book about how Christians can experience hope after the death of a non-believer, and it is so compelling and compassionately written that I would dare to give it to someone amid their grief. Our hope is found in the character of God as He reveals Himself in Scripture, and Dobbie’s examination of Scripture proves that this hope is not fickle, but real and full of comfort.

Dobbie does not shy away from asking tough questions and providing biblical, well-thought-through, compassionate, and sometimes hard-to-accept answers.

“The loss of an unbelieving loved one can, of course, make us re-evaluate our theology. How loving and compassionate is God really? Is He a God I’m able to keep following without resentment? What about predestination? What about babies? What about the severely mentally disabled? And if the person I loved is now in hell, how can I have any consolation, any closure, any peace, ever again?” And while these answers may be challenging to accept, he also provides a way to comfort – through understanding truth and humbling ourselves in awe of the Glory of God.
