About this book

When pastor Alain Emerson lost his twenty-three-year-old wife to cancer, his once-firm faith seemed to crumble. In this profound exploration of loss, Emerson, the former National Director of 24-7 Prayer Ireland, retraces his journey through the stages of grief, the bewildering silence of God, and the absence of simple answers. Through this, he emerges with a stronger and deeper faith, and a sense of having seen God’s face – the one who suffers and weeps with us, and who ultimately restores our joy.

For anyone experiencing grief or disappointment with God, Luminous Dark will walk with you on the journey through pain and into hope.
