"As long as the unimaginable stays the unmentionable, then the question, 'What happens now?' will often be unanswerable. This book bravely and honestly faces the hard questions on each step of a very personal and painful journey. It doesn’t give easy answers or formulas to follow, but something much better: hope."
Colin Piper, Executive Director World Evangelical Alliance Youth Commission

What do we do when the unimaginable happens? How do we make sense of tragedy in the context of our faith and learn to live again?

This is the story of how a family faced, and is still coming to terms with, the loss of their six-year old son, Ben. Thrust into an unwanted new reality, they sought to cope and make sense of their faith. Neither life, nor faith, could continue as it had before – presenting a daunting challenge. We get angry about suffering because we don’t want it to happen. But it happens anyway and forces us to look at life and our relationship with God differently. God doesn’t stop life being messy, but He steps into the mess with us.

This isn’t a theological book. Neither is it a "how to" guide written by people who have cracked the problem of grief. But the author and his family have learned things about suffering in the hardest way imaginable and found hope to share with those in similar situations. They have found that God is present to help us, especially in the midst of our pain and confusion, and we don't have to face suffering and grief alone. This book will help many in the Church to have honest conversations about suffering; about what we do when we don’t get the breakthrough we’d hoped for.
