Review: Arise From Darkness - What to Do When Life Doesn't Make Sense


Fr. Benedict Groeschel, well-known priest and psychologist, draws on his years of dealing with people's problems and tragedies to provide practical and spiritual help to anyone burdened by the hardships of life. Whether you are troubled by death, loss, tragedy, hardship, or dspair Fr. Groeschel's unique insights combining the wisdom of scripture with his life experience will help you persevere and prevail. The last chapter of the book contains prayers and reflections for times in life that are especially challenging. In addition, there is a prayer at the end of each chapter relating to that chapters subject matter.

I found Arise From Darkness: What to Do When Life Doesn't Make Sense to be personally rewarding. Fr. Groeschel urges us to keep life in perspective with eternity. Death is a human experience none are spared. Suffering is inevitable for everyone. Even Christ suffered and died, but in so doing He made those experiences holy. Death and suffering are mysteries we do not fully understand. This lack of understanding should not lead to fear however. Rather, we should view death as a birth into eternal life.

This sounds like a great reading book. Although as you know Angels and Christ followers are familiar with the forces of darkness.
