What happens now, is the first book Dave has written and published through River Publishing. The book is the story of how Dave and his family faced the loss of their six-year old son, Ben. Thrust into an unwanted new reality, they sought to cope and make sense of their faith. Neither life, nor faith, could continue as it had before – presenting a daunting challenge. We get angry about suffering because we don’t want it to happen. But it happens anyway and forces us to look at life and our relationship with God differently.
This isn’t a theological book or a “how to” guide written by people who have cracked the problem of grief. But the author and his family have learned things about suffering and found hope to share with those in similar situations. God is present to help us, especially in the midst of our pain and confusion, and we don’t have to face suffering and grief alone. This book seeks to help us have honest conversations about suffering and what we do when we don’t get the breakthrough we’d hoped for.
