Hope for the Brokenhearted grew out of Terveen's own experience with grief resulting from his fourteen-year-old daughter's death. Searching for a book to assuage his deep grief, he found that the Bible provided the greatest source of hope, comfort, wise counsel, and encouragement. Utilizing his background as a senior pastor and seminary professor, Terveen analyzes biblical passages on grief and loss and shares his insights to help hurting Christians embrace these passages more fully and seriously in the midst of their mourning. The biblical selections deal with the hard questions, honest passions, and divine hope that only one who has walked down the path of sorrow could write about. Topics such as resurrection, the second coming, heaven, the resurrection body, doubt, anger, guilt, and dashed dreams are covered with care to minister to grieving hearts.
