the book in question

The book which served as inspiration for the previous post is, in fact, my new favorite. It's amazing, and hard, and beautiful, and painful - as any writing about infertility and reproductive loss should be. It is also, in my four years of this journey, the only decent book about faith and infertility I have found.

It's called "Hope Deferred," and it's written by several theologians who experienced reproductive loss (infertility, miscarriage, or stillbirth) themselves.

Naturally, it's out of print, but I still got a copy from our friends at ama.zon.com. If you're a secret (or public) theologian, I heartily recommend it.

Feel free to leave Casino Royale (or the James Bond movie of your choice) on while you read it.


  1. Thank you. I had no idea a book like this was out there, and I am ordering it now.

  2. I can't wait to check it out, thanks for letting us know! Your previous post really said how I've felt so many times. Thank you!
