About the Author
John MacArthur has served as the pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, since 1969. His ministry of expository preaching is unparalleled in its breadth and influence. In more than four decades of ministry from the same pulpit, he has preached verse by verse through the entire New Testament (and several key sections of the Old Testament). He is president of the Master's University and Seminary and can be heard daily on the Grace to You radio broadcast (carried on hundreds of radio stations worldwide). He has authored a number of bestselling books, including Twelve Ordinary Men, and One Perfect Life.

I am now reading it again as I face the hard reality that the baby I am carrying will certainly die before, during or immediately after birth.
This is a must read for anyone in ministry. My husband is in theological education - and I recommend it as a must read to his students and their wives. Sadly, you will come across people who need the truth of this book, do get it and read it now!
About the book, (its quite small) some of the details of events passed made me cry, (such feelings) and I can well imagine anyone reading this book from the loss of a child would readily identify with, so it taught me as someone who has not lost a child, to get a real feeling of the utter despair and loss, if that was needed, it also demonstrated just how unfeeling someone operating out of feelings can be when communicating from just your own feelings and experiences, no there is no room for that in this book its Bible, bible, bible, and I like that because that is what the book claims, and it is 5* in that respect, buy it for your pastor, buy it for your bookshelf, buy it for a Christian who has lost a child, I am not sure if I would buy it for someone who had no faith, as I think in the main they often create an acceptable conclusion of what has happen to their child albeit extremely painful and upsetting, I say this because of the many, many reverences to the bible, that they may find difficult in the circumstances they regrettably find themselves in. that said I would happily give my copy to someone I happened to meet on the train for instance, but that would be out of necessity due to time restrictions, and possibly under these conditions I give it more to make myself feel better than that poor mother.
As with all of Dr. MacArthur's works, this book is a work of Biblical exposition excellence. If you have lost an infant, know someone who has lost one, or even if you are interested in good, solid theology, then this book is for you. I would also add this book should probably be in the library of every church. I sure wish that I had had this book when my wife and I lost two children through miscarriage. My wife and I give this book our highest recommendations!
