Wolterstorff, a well-known Christian philosopher, lost his 25-year-old son to a mountain climbing accident. His reflections in the wake of that tragedy are at times deeply personal, but always he expresses a prayerful anguish with which most bereaved parents will identify. Above all he refuses to turn from the "demonic awfulness" of death and, as he moves faithfully through grief, discovers new meaning in the Beatitudes, together with a new understanding of a suffering God. Spiritually enriching and theologically substantive. (Library Journal, Copyright 1987 Reed Business Information, Inc.)

"A deeply moving account of how one man has learned to deal with pain." (Booklist)

"For the gift of this personal meditation, the Christian community should offer profound gratitude. Perhaps once or twice a year—in a good year—one reads a book so compelling, so essential, that one wishes to advise all friends, 'Here, please read this book. It's wonderful.' Simple and profound, Lament for a Son is such a book." (Christianity Today)

"Lament for a Son is a simple, honest, and poignant expression of one man's grief, but it is more. By sharing the depths of his grief, not in trite phrases but honestly, Nicholas Wolterstorff helps open the floodgates for those who cannot articulate their pain. . . This little book is a true gift to those who grieve and those who, in love, reach out to comfort. Wolterstorff's words are, indeed, 'salve on our wounds.' Thank God he did not remain silent." (Henri J. M. Nouwen)

This was a book read with colleagues at the university I work at. It is a combination of lectures he gave over a span of a few decades. Very interesting to read the evolution of the thoughts of the author through many years.

„Ezt az írást több mint tizenkét évvel ezelőtt vetettem papírra, hogy lerójam tiszteletemet Erik előtt, és meggyászoljam őt, a fiút és a testvért, akit 25 évesen, hegymászás közben ért baleset Ausztriában. Mélységesen személyes hangvétele ellenére végül azért döntöttem kiadása mellett, mert azt reméltem, hogy lesznek olyan szülők, akik saját érzéseikre – tiszteletükre és fájdalmukra – ismernek majd szavaimban.” Wolterstorff fiát siratja. Írása a gyász és a hit vallomása. Szavait átjárja a mély meggyőződés, hogy szenvedésünkben nem maradunk magunkra. Isten, aki éppoly valóságosan jelen van kérdéseinkben, mint válaszainkban, velünk együtt szenved. A kötetet ajánljuk mindazoknak, akik a fájdalom mélyére akarnak nézni, hogy megértsék saját maguk és embertársaik gyászát és szenvedését.… (mer)
