When a woman becomes pregnant, miscarriage is usually the furthest thing from her mind. Her time is spent dreaming of the day she will finally cradle her newborn baby in her arms. Such was the case for Jessalyn Hutto when she became pregnant with her first baby. But as is all too common in our post-fall world, the precious life she carried came to an abrupt end before those dreams ever became a reality.
Death had visited her womb and the horrors of miscarriage had become a part of her life?s story.
Ultimately, she would lose two precious children in the womb, one at 6 weeks gestation and another at 15 weeks. Through these painful losses, a whole new world of suffering opened up to her. It seemed as though no matter where she looked there were women quietly mourning the loss of their unborn children. What she had once assumed to be a rare occurrence was now revealed to be an extremely common experience among women. Yet, this particular type of loss is one that has been grossly overlooked by the church.
Jessalyn found that as couples seek to navigate the unique difficulties inherent in losing a child, they are often left with little biblical counsel to draw upon. More often than not, well-meaning friends and family seek to alleviate their sorrow by offering encouragement in the form of empty platitudes and Christian clichés. But what these couples truly need is the hope of the gospel. This is what led Jessalyn Hutto to write Inheritance of Tears.
In this short book, Hutto seeks to deal honestly and sensitively with the issue of miscarriage and reveal how it relates to the Word of God. She does so by answering questions like:* Why do babies have to die in the womb? * Do miscarriages take God by surprise? * Does God care about your pain? * How can any good come from something so terrible? * How can I find joy in the midst of such intense sorrow?
By providing a biblical context for miscarriage, she beckons mourning mothers and fathers to walk triumphantly through the valley of the shadow of death by fixing their eyes upon their loving Savior, who will one day do away with death and sorrow forever.
Short, sensitive, and theologically robust, Inheritance of Tears is a book that every pastor and church member can confidently share with those who are called to walk through the painful trial of miscarriage, and in reading the book themselves, they will gain greater insight into how to effectively minister to these parents in their time of need.
Dal retro di copertina: "Miscarriage places women in a secret club that nobody wants to join, but many find themselves in. Because of the nature of the loss, many women grasp for hope in the overwhelming days of grief that follow. I have twice been that woman, and Jessalyn Hutto has written the book I wish I'd had as I walked through the pain of our miscarriages. Filled with Scripture, empathy, and rock-solid hope that God is a good and all-loving Father, this book will be a healing balm to grieving women in your local church." -Courtney Reissig, wife; mom; author, The Accidental Feminist: Restoring Our Delight in God's Good Design "Miscarriage? Don't talk about it. Sadly, this is the approach many churches take. As a result, the woman in the pew suffers unbearable pain and grieves all alone. Change must happen, and Inheritance of Tears is the place to start. Speaking from firsthand experience, Jessalyn Hutto compassionately wipes the tears from the desolate woman's eyes so that she can see the insurmountable love and unbreakable sovereignty of her Savior, Jesus Christ." -Matthew Barrett, Executive Editor; Credo Magazine "Without a solid theological framework, God's role in our suffering is hard to navigate. Jessalyn gives the needed resources to know in truth the God of All Comfort, for only from that foundation can we receive his deep rest in the midst of pain." -Wendy Alsup, Author, Practical Theology for Women "Having walked through the sorrow of miscarriage, my heart resonates with Jessalyn's bittersweet journey. She doesn't back away from the tough questions that loss brings, but offers biblical counsel for the hurting as one who understands their pain... a personal word of truth and comfort that I highly recommend." -Kimberly Wagner, author, Fierce Women: the Power of a Soft Warrior "She guides us theologically, so that we see God's wisdom, God's purpose, and God's love in the midst of our suffering. I gladly recommend this work to others." -Tom Schreiner, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
