When I Lay My Isaac Down




This morning, I finished a good book by Carol Kent, When I Lay My Isaac Down: Unshakable Faith in Unthinkable Circumstances.
It's the story of how she processed the terrible news that her 25 year old son had shot and killed a man.
It is a good encouragement for anybody suffering through painful and perplexing experiences -- particularly, in regard to their children.
The best thought I found was a question: Are you living closer to Good Friday or Easter Sunday?

Hi Mark,
I was checking your blog a while back and came across this post and it just so happens (ha, as if that really happens, God has a plan) I was prepping for a sermon on Issac and Abraham and this amazing sacrifice. And because of this post I bought the book and have enjoyed reading it, I just wanted to say thanks.
