We lost our infant daughter in August 2008 to congenital heart disease. It is the most devastating tragedy for a family to experience, but a friend loaned me this book ..... and it has been incredibly comforting. John MacArthur goes through the scriptures systematically to give a sure foundation for why I can know that my Bethany is in heaven and enjoying eternal health, comfort and joy. And that she is still a member of our family, and we will be reunited with her again. I definately recommend this book for anyone in the ministry, hospice work, grief counseling, or who has lost a child.
" 'Is my baby in heaven?' This is the most important question a grieving parent can ask. And even if the little one is someone else's child, the issue remains: What happens to children - those unborn, stillborn, or youngsters - when they die? Can you hope to see them again? Can you let go of your fear and guilt? Can God's love soothe a wound so jagged?
With scriptural authority and the warmth of a pastor's heart, bestselling author John MacArthur examines the breadth of the entire Bible and reveals in this compelling book the Heavenly Father's care for every life."
This book was a great comfort to me after miscarrying our baby. May it bring comfort to any parent with a broken heart.
