You are not alone.
Even if you have suffered terrible tragedy, even if you have lost the person most dear to you, God’s love holds you in his comforting embrace.
Miriam Neff shares this essential message through the powerful testimony of eleven widows in the Bible. Their stories are brought to narrative life in lyrical, first person prose that takes readers deep inside these women’s grief, strength, and faith. Both haunting and hopeful, the moving stories in Not Alone remind us what it means to love―and what it means to live with God.
The greatest stories ever told and the seeds for all others are found in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Many people who have never read God’s Word have heard of David and Goliath, Samson, and Paul the apostle. However, many of the priceless jewels of this eternal book are found in the stories of courageous widows like Tamar and the widow of Zarephath.
These artfully retold stories take us into the heartbreak of loss and struggles with fate. Not for widows only, these stories inspire and empower us. As the widows rise in hope, we rise with them. Even if you are one who has experienced any kind of loss, these stories will strengthen your faith and shine a light into darkness.
