 General Description:

When Lightning Strikes Twice
by Marci Alborghetti

For people who've worked hard to overcome an addiction or adopt a healthy, positive lifestyle, a new addiction or a second descent into illness can also represent personal failure. Even more disturbing to those of us facing a repeated crisis is the initial impact it may have on our faith and relationship with God. When we find ourselves facing again the very thing that we've counted on God to prevent, we can feel betrayed. Shock, disbelief, rage, blame—all these feelings can come to bear in us.

These pages explore all of these feelings and examine how people in the grip of repeat tragedy experienced the event, faced their circumstances, learned to cope, and found their way to a stronger faith and deeper trust in God. Using life stories, biblical profiles, and illustrations from our culture, each chap-ter will define and describe a stage or emotion in the experience of a second tragedy. At the end of each chapter are a prayer conversation with God, questions for reflection, suggested Bible readings, and activities designed to assist in dealing with a return tragedy.

This warm and welcoming book is a perfect companion for anyone experiencing that second strike of lightning.

Marci Alborghetti is author of 12 Strong Women of God: Biblical Models for Today (Twenty-Third Publications). She is a contributor to Daily Guideposts as well as the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.
