Publisher's Summary

Read by the author. Includes 10 bonus chapters exclusively included in the audiobook edition!

An honest look at grief and fears, faith and hope. Combining personal narrative, sound theology, and beautiful writing, this is a book for anyone who has loved and lost.

On November 3, 2020, Tim and Aileen Challies received the shocking news that their son Nick had died. A twenty-year-old student at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, he had been participating in a school activity with his fiancée, sister, and friends, when he fell unconscious and collapsed to the ground.

Neither students nor a passing doctor nor paramedics were able to revive him. His parents received the news at their home in Toronto and immediately departed for Louisville to be together as a family. While on the plane, Tim, an author and blogger, began to process his loss through writing. In Seasons of Sorrow, Tim shares real-time reflections from the first year of grief—through the seasons from fall to summer—introducing listeners to what he describes as the “ministry of sorrow.”

Seasons of Sorrow will benefit both those that are working through sorrow or those comforting others:

  • See how God is sovereign over loss and that he is good in loss
  • Discover how you can pass through times of grief while keeping your faith
  • Learn how biblical doctrine can work itself out even in life’s most difficult situations
  • Understand how it is possible to love God more after loss than you loved him before

there is hope in loss and suffering

Tim's writing of his journey of loss was a big encouragement to my heavy heart. God is faithful even in sorrow.

Prepare to weep and rejoice!

Wow, I cannot say enough good things about this book. Tim has beautifully laid out the story of his suffering and the grace and goodness that met him there. No greater tragedy can a parent endure than the loss of a child. I cannot imagine that pain and I would never wish it upon anyone. This book navigates the depths of that type of loss, the process of the grief that ensues, and the goodness and sovereignty of the most high God through it all. Wonderful work Tim. I wept with you upon the public news of Nicks death, I weep with you now and I rejoice in the work that the Good and sovereign Lord has done in and is doing through you!

Also as this is an audiobook—Narration is excellent as well!

Thank you, Tim.

Our 7 month old daughter, Eden Rome, went to be with the Lord 1 month ago. We are in a similar season and have found this book so encouraging- I even read chapter 9 during her Celebration of Life service this past weekend. I look forward to meeting Nick one day-he sounds like such a great guy. Praying for continued comfort for your family.

Incredible testimony that reflects Christ’s nearness and goodness in life and death.

Because of the testimony of Tim Challies I am reminded and encouraged that God will be faithful to me in whatever He might bring about in my life.

An amazing book.

An amazing book and an absolute must read or hear for anyone who has either experienced grief or ministers to those who have experienced it. I was moved to tears and uplifted simultaneously.
