"Edited by Richard H. Schmidt".
This book was envisioned as "a volume we could make available to any person or group of persons experiencing a wrenching loss. .... Fourteen authors responded to our invitation. The result is a kaleidoscope of stories, insights, ruminations, and expressions of faith. The pieces in this volume are stunning in their variety. They have two things in common: each is undergirded by the author's Christian faith, and each addresses the hard questions head-on. What are those hard questions ? Not every piece in these pages speaks to every concern, but several questions recur, like leitmotifs in a symphony: How can I make sense out of a devastating loss ? Where can I find support ? Where is God in this event ? Why does God allow it ? How can I forgive those responsible ?" -- Preface.
Contents divided into two main sections: Stories -- Reflections.

"The cross has a way of intruding itself into your life. Often knowledge of the cross goes hand in hand with the experience of some significant life failure. To recognize that you are, after all, a broken vessel can sober you up a bit about your quest for glory." "This book is an essay on the vocation of the leader. It is a theology of the vocation of leadership for parish practice. It is written from the standpoint of what Christians call theology of the cross." "Those who lead are subject to the cross no less than others. Public leadership in the church is subject to death and resurrection. The very initiatives, actions, and plans of leaders undergo the cross. ... Under the cross, ministry dies to itself and rises anew". -- Intro.
"Ministry is hard. Ministry is, in fact, impossible. This is perhaps the worst-kept secret in the life of the church. .... Cross-shaped leadership, therefore, is often about breaking old contracts and making new covenants, and it's about accepting the irrational as a force to be reckoned with in the process. Here's the good news though. Once we've accepted the truth that ministry is hard, even impossible -- once we've stopped living in denial of this reality, or perhaps whining about it -- it becomes the truth that sets us free. We cease being gloomy servants, weighed down by our resentful conviction that we are all alone in our work -- the closet atheist ... born of the worry, 'If I don't do it, nobody will' -- and instead become joyful co-workers with a strong, wise, and consoling Lord". -- p. 8, 9.

"Dear Child of God, I write these words because we all experience sadness, we all come at times to despair, and we all lose hope that the suffering in our lives and in our world will ever end. I want to share with you my faith and my understanding that this suffering can be transformed and redeemed. There is no such thing as a totally hopeless cause. Our God is an expert at dealing with chaos, with brokenness, with all the worst that we can imagine. God created order out of disorder, cosmos out of chaos, and God can do so always, can do so now -- in our personal lives and in our lives as nations. The most unlikely person, the most improbable situation -- these are all 'transfigurable' -- they can be turned into their glorious opposites. Indeed, God is transforming the world now -- through us -- because God loves us". -- Intro., pp. vii-viii.
Contents: Introduction -- God Believes in Us -- God's Dream -- God Loves You As You Are -- God Loves Your Enemies -- God Only Has Us -- Seeing With the Eyes of the Heart -- Stillness: Hearing God's Voice -- In the Fullness of Time -- Postscript: Your Part of God's Dream -- Acknowledgements.

"[A]t the heart of this book are some of the real feelings which lead people to react negatively to the Christian faith, feelings that are not always articulated. I am concerned with the moral, emotional and spiritual reasons why people find themselves unable to believe or even totally alienated from Christian beliefs. Apart from the problems of suffering, which continues to be the great barrier to faith, and which I discuss in the final chapter, I suspect that behind the philosophical doubts or reasons drawn from the spurious clash of science and religion, there are inchoate feelings of dislike or rejection that have to do with other things altogether." -- Intro., p. xi.
Contents divided into five sections: The Case against God -- Difficulties in Belief -- The Case against Religion -- The Case against Christianity -- Towards a Spirituality for Today.
Individual chapters include: Eternal Punishment -- Does God have Favourites ? -- Religion is Divisive -- Christianity is just for Wimps -- The Silence of God.

Notes
A meditation by the now retired bishop of Manicaland, Zimbabwe. A reflection on Mark chapter 15, verses 9-14, the persecution and suffering of Christ because he was not one of the powerful and threatened them with his love for the poor and powerless. "As we know the same violence that nailed Jesus to the cross in still prevalent in our world even today. It has many forms and can be physical as well as verbal .... HIV and AIDS is claiming lots of lives in Zimbabwe today. Should anyone be stoned to death because of helping the infected or affected, for instance the orphans ? Should anyone be harassed or beaten up because she/he has offered food to a hungry family ? Indeed we have heard voices saying time and again: Do not love or care for them because they are not 'one of us'. Whenever an act of violence is committed, the perpetrators appear to be victorious. But history has shown us again and again that perpetrators of violence always become the losers in the end. Jesus appeared to be a victim but today we celebrate his victory of the resurrection ...".
