Grace comes in surprising ways

A grace disguised I discovered the writing of Gerald Sittser over Christmas break.  Sittser's A Grace Disguised is very, very thoughtful. 

In 1991, Sittser lost his mother, his wife and his daughter in an accident when the van they were traveling in was hit by a drunk driver.  Through that loss, Sittser hung in there and, in time, discovered what he describes as the redemptive side of the tragedy.  It's a beautifully written book.  Everyone ought to read it.

Now I'm am reading Sittser's newest book called Water from a Deep Well — Christian Spirituality from Early Martyrs to Modern Missionaries(IVP, 2007).  Again, so thoughtful and highly recommended.  Sittser's a smart guy and such a good writer.
