Book Description

It has been said that 2 Corinthians 1:4 deserves to be written in letters of gold, for it is one of the hardest and noblest works in all Christianity to be able to bring divine comfort to others in trouble; and yet by sufferings God fits and prepares his people for this noble and difficult service.

Theodore L. Cuyler was thus divinely fitted for the great task of comforting God’s suffering people. Fourteen years after losing two of his children in their infancy, this one-time pastor of Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church, Brooklyn, New York, lost a daughter at the age of twenty-one. In the pain-filled months following this deeply felt bereavement he penned the short chapters that make up this little book. A bestseller when first published in 1882, its pages offer hope for the despondent, consolation for the bereaved, and light for those in darkness.
