Bronner: A Journey to Understand by Sherri Burgess - REVIEWED

About the Book:
God teaches and refines us through pain and suffering. Author Sherri Burgess, wife of Rick Burgess of The Rick and Bubba Show, knows this to be true. After the earthly death of her youngest son, Bronner, Burgess asked, “Why?” And God answered.
Journey with her through this powerful testimony of healing to understand the purpose behind the pain. An empowering resource for book-club discussion or small-group Bible study, this is much more than simply a retelling of an inspiring story. It is a call to action beckoning us to know our Holy God like never before.

My Thoughts:
I want the world to be perplexed. They think you love Me because I’ve blessed you.  You son is with me, and I want your response to leave no doubt as to who I Am.”  (p. 64)

To read Sherri and Rick Burgess’ account of their journey through the loss of their son, and the healing and restoration God brought to this family in the midst of their pain is both humbling and amazing.  I’ve seen folks walk through this loss, and, without Christ, I have no doubt that there is no surviving this kind of tragedy. 
God has redeemed this loss in miraculous ways, and I honestly feel that God will bring healing to many lives through Sherri Burgess’ first person account of this painful journey.  She is real.  She is honest.  She suffers.  She rejoices.  God alone saw this precious family through this ordeal.

It’s important to be reminded of the ways God works in people’s lives.  It is an encouragement and challenge to get even closer to God no matter what situation lies before us.  I am very, very thankful for the Bugess family, and their willingness to allow us to walk alongside them and learn and grow from their circumstance.

This is a remarkable book that I recommend to everyone!
