With vulnerability and honesty, Jerry Sittser walks through his own grief and loss to show that new life is possible - one marked by spiritual depth, joy, compassion, and a deeper appreciation of simple blessings. Loss came suddenly for Jerry Sittser. In an instant, a tragic car accident claimed three generations of his family: his mother, his wife, and his young daughter. While most of us will not experience such a catastrophic loss in our lifetime, all of us will taste it. And we can, if we choose, know the grace that transforms it. A Grace Disguised plumbs the depths of our sorrows, whether due to illness, divorce, or the loss of someone we love. The circumstances are not important; what we do with those circumstances is. In coming to the end of ourselves, we can come to the beginning of a new life.

"To read how Jerry chose to enter into the pain, instead of avoid or deny, despite this being so painful, is something that challenged me to consider the choices I have face and will one day face as none of us cannot avoid loss.This was not a depressing book but a hope-filled book with the grace of Christ flowing through it as a thread. I shall definitely recommend it to others." A reviewer.
