Are you still grieving even months after the passing of someone in your life? The effects of grief, loss, and mourning are long lived, even if it seems the rest of the world has moved on. Sometimes you question your faith, wondering where Christ could possibly be in the midst of this mess or why Christ would take this beloved person from you.

Pastor Kristian Kincaid has been through substantial loss, mourning the death of seven different family members, all taken in tragic and horrific ways. During all of these tragedies it can seem as if you are trapped and bound by your sorrow, unable to see Christ’s light. But Pastor Kincaid wants you to know that Christ is always there, wrapping you in His comfort of His promise in the resurrection.

Ideal for those grieving or for pastors to give out to those still feeling the effects of grief after a traumatic loss, Pastor Kincaid offers guidance on how Christ is your comfort through it all, along with sharing his raw and personal accounts of losing his family members during his lifetime. With biblical application wrapped throughout, this book offers strength through Christ to lift the unexplainable burden of loss off your shoulders.

Our Comfort is in Jesus Christ!

This is a heart-felt composition written in a Christ-centered way by a Pastor who knows that the only comfort for our grief is found in Jesus Christ. The book is loaded with references from Holy Scripture that strongly affirm that we will be with Him after death. Not only has the author been a comforter to others in their grief but he has a lot of first-hand experience with tragedy in his own family. Death is our enemy and it is a sure thing and we will “…never be the victor. No resolve, no ingenuity, no technological gains can stave off the fiend named death. There will always be an obituary column to read, and one day, our names will appear.” The cause of death: “Sin infects and affects the whole creation with death.” Rev. Kincaid devotes an entire chapter to the funeral industry where he explains that death has now been “institutionalized and sanitized, taking place most often in hospitals or care facilities….” Gone are the days when death was “hands-on and up-front.” In Chapters 6 and 7, Dr. Kincaid warns about dangers among us. He cautions us against seeking “comfort in comfortless places. We erringly turn away from God’s Holy Word and turn to misleading writings, various ‘signs,’ psychics, mediums, and other detrimental and dark means the devil uses to lure us away from Christ.” You don’t have to wait until you experience grief to benefit from this book. During the pandemic and the resulting upside-down world, it is comforting to be reminded about Christ’s assurances of life after death. The book is excellent for both laity and Pastors. There is no deep theology here; just the simple and clear easy-to-read words from Holy Scripture. At the end of each chapter are reflection questions to ponder, all based on Holy Scripture. The book would be a great congregation Bible study.

This book is a blessing

Reading this book brought many tears to my eyes but they were tears of comfort and joy. I'll be purchasing more of these to give to those who are trying to cope with loss. Don't want to give away my own copy as I'm sure I'll want to refer to it frequently. This is an exceptional read.
