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 readers 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

"This book is brilliant, not because of Tim Challie's eloquence, but because of his tears! Many of us have benefited immensely from the author's blogs. However,  in this book, Tim takes us even deeper as he wrestles with the brutal ugliness of death during one whole year of personal sorrow after the loss of his son Nick. The buoyancy of faith that shines from every page often left me teary-eyed, thanking God for his grace to his people during their darkest times. What priceless grace!" - Conrad Mbewe

" In the winter of his sorrow, Tim Challies writes that he wants to be found to be a good steward of what God entrusted him, not in the life, but in the death of his son. And surely this tender book is evidence of that stewardship. As he expresses his agonies and questions and aims, he does the work of discipling all who walk the path of losing someone they love to the anguish of death. In the pages of this book, grieving people will find companionship, insight, and genuine encouragment for the journey." Nancy Guthrie
