Parsons, Kansas (PRWEB) December 11, 2012
Divorce is difficult enough, but when people are facing divorce as Christians, there are few resources to help them see God through the process. In Finding God in the Seasons of Divorce, Richard D. Crooks uses his years of pastoral experience and theological education, as well as his own personal experience with divorce, to guide both Christians and non-Christians through daily devotionals to help the healing begin.
Prior to his own divorce, Crooks would minister to others going through divorce. It was only when he experienced it himself that he realized which ministries were effective, which were not, and how there was a need for a Christian resource. “I have seen far too many Christian people struggling in the midst of divorce with a great sense of guilt in their connections to the church,” says Crooks. “My own experience forced me to see personally what these individuals were facing and how important it was to develop a resource to help them through this time.”
The first book in a new series, Finding God in the Seasons of Divorce walks readers through the stages of divorce and covers topics such as faith, loneliness, finances, attorneys, discouragement, children and dealing with one’s ex. With daily devotionals, which include spiritual and Biblical references, Crooks applies the uplifting messages that have helped many others work through each step of the process.
“This book reaches into the world of the divorcing person to represent God’s love and compassion as that person seeks to understand what God’s purpose and plans might be.”
