Item description for And Then Mark Died: Letters of Grief, Love, and Faith by Susan Sonnenday Vogel...

Overview
In twenty-three letters written after the death of her son, Susan Vogel describes her pain, exhaustion, guilt, and despair. She also draws upon the hope, grace, and promise that are gifts of the Christian church. The letters also engage with, and sometimes quarrel with, those resources or interpretations of them. It is this well-grounded theological reflection, and the shared experience of faith tested and made stronger in the terrible fire of grief, that sets this book apart.

Publishers Description
In 23 letters written after the death of her son, the author describes her pain, exhaustion, guilt and despair. She also draws upon the hope and grace and promise that are the gifts of the Christian Church. The letters, written to family, friends, and members of her congregation, are informed by doctrines of the church, scripture and the wisdom of foremothers and forefathers of the faith. The letters engage with, and sometimes quarrel with, those resources or interpretation of them. It is this well-grounded theological reflection and the shared experience of faith tested and made stronger in the terrible fire of grief which sets this book apart. NOTE: Two of these letters were published in Circuit Rider (March/April 2001). The response was very positive among readers, including Martin Marty who picked up a long quote in his popular publication Context.

Reviews - What do customers think about And Then Mark Died: Letters of Grief, Love, and Faith?

One Woman's Voyage From Grief to Healing  Mar 19, 2003
And Then Mark Died: Letters of Grief, Love and Faith is a collection of poignant letters written to various confidantes five years after Ms Vogel lost her adult son in a car accident. In reliving the horror of her loss, Ms Vogel lays herself bare and, in doing so, helps others who have experienced sudden, violent loss to heal. Ms Vogel's beautifully-phrased writing evokes sympathy, empathy and even sometimes amusement, as she describes her journey through nearly indescribeable pain to calm acceptance and understanding of her loss. This slim book will take any reader, bereaved or not, to a higher plane of self-awareness and maturity.
