Encounter with Christ in the midst of inexplicable suffering is the austere but joyful theme of Celebration: A Story Of Suffering And Joy, Margaret Spufford's meditation on prayer, the cross, and the suffering of children. With tremendous insight and wit, Spufford tells the story of her daughter, who was diagnosed with a rare metabolic disease at birth and died in her early twenties, as well as the story of her own struggle with a bone deterioration that brings chronic pain. It is an unflinching and profoundly moving look at the question of pain and physical evil, asking whether God does indeed care for all creation, including "those on whom the hands of the potter seem to have slipped. " Celebration is as important to read as is the Book of Job in helping clergy, ethicists, chaplains, medical professionals, hospice workers, family members, and ordinary Christians who have been confronted by or lived with physical suffering. -- Midwest Book Review
I hope it will be read by those contemplating a career in medicine, by their future teachers, by hospital chaplains and social workers, and also by those who write about medical ethics. -- John A. Davies, professor of Pediatrics, Cambridge, England
