This book, written by a pastor, is intended to be read by widows as well as those ministering to them. It is full of wise counsel, biblical and practical advice and aims to bring comfort for the present and hope for the future.
Each chapter is short and most of them are directed at the widow, without being ‘preachy’. The chapters aimed at the church and the family provide a biblical ‘wake-up call’ in these days of over-reliance on the welfare state. The chapter on serving Christ as a widow takes us right back to the practice of the New Testament. Don’t treat widows like victims, don’t ignore them, harness their energies for the gospel where possible!
