Whether through the death of a loved one, divorce, or estrangement in a marriage, or by being a single person in a world of couples and families, loneliness eventually comes to us all. It is well known that beloved author Elisabeth Elliot lost her first husband to murder in the South American jungle. Perhaps not as well known, she lost her second to the ravages of cancer. She has felt the deep pain of loss, just like you.
In The Path of Loneliness, Elliot gives hope to the lonely through tender reflections on God's love for us and his plans to bless us. Here you will find honesty and compassion, not platitudes. She tackles this difficult topic with grace and faith, showing you how to make peace with loneliness, however it has come about, and how to grow through it.
