Finding Hope:

Rediscovering Life After Tragedy

by Dr. James W. Goll

Franklin, TN:  How do you cope, let alone rebuild your life after a tragedy? Where do you find the strength and hope to move forward into a meaningful life filled with purpose?

For Dr. James W. Goll, a full-time vocational minister for over forty years, offering prayer, counseling, and biblical guidance to those dealing with life-altering change or tragedy was part of his calling. He never expected the way his own faith would be tested.

With transparence and vulnerability, Goll reveals in his new book Finding Hope: Rediscovering Life After Tragedy the impact on his life during a time he was going through three bouts with cancer, and the soul-stirring grief from the death of his beloved wife from cancer (at a time he, too, was battling cancer). Adding to his intense sorrow, Goll was now a single parent with insurmountable debt, loss of income, and dealing with public scrutiny from his global ministry.

In Finding Hope: Rediscovering Life After Tragedy by Goll, readers will learn practical lessons to apply to their own lives or offer to others in life-changing circumstances that include:

  •  When the bottom falls out (Proverbs 13:12)
  • Metamorphosis: the process of change (Job 14:7)
  • Let God put a dream in your heart (Romans 4:18)
  • Never, never, never give up (Zechariah 9:12)
  • No matter what comes, God is good (Ephesians 1:18–19)
  • Become an ambassador of hope to others (Colossians 1:27)

“To touch other people, I need to share my own triumph in the midst of tragedy. I know what the driving force of pain can make me do, and though I do not like pain, I know what God can do with it,” says Goll. “Not everything that happens is good, but if you continue to walk with God, he will take your broken pieces and mend them, and that is an absolute miracle.”

Deeply personal and intensely practical, Finding Hope will give you useful tools whether for yourself or someone you love. You can rediscover life after tragedy!
