When Grief Descends: Suffering, Consolation and The Book of Job
Praise For Anne’s Book
International #1 Best Selling Author
In this beautifully and sensitively written book, readers are invited into an intimate and vulnerable journey with Anne and with the character of Job as conversation partners. Counsellors, biblical scholars and writers also come alongside as she leads all into a timeless and cross-cultural “listening,” a masterful weaving of theological and counselling perspectives.
Anne lives and writes the testimony of her words “God broke into my story,” calling, trusting, waiting restoring and transforming. Transforming life and action so that she has now become a consoling comforter. As an instructor of those who will offer comfort to the sorrowing, I look forward to being able to use this volume as required reading for ministry students.

Author Anne Mackie Morelli wrote her book with three goals for her readers: to begin developing a Christian theology of suffering, to understand loss and grief, and to learn how better to console others in their suffering. Her book beautifully succeeds in all three areas by offering a careful study of the book of Job, reflecting on her own deep experiences of loss, and drawing on the expertise of others. This excellent resource is biblically grounded, well-researched, and wise, with plenty of practical examples, plus exercises for readers to try for themselves. I recommend her book for both individuals and churches seeking to grow in compassion and caring.
