A friend of mine from Mount Gambier (Port MacDonnell, actually) was in the Christian Reformed Bookstore in Brisbane a week or two ago and text messaged me asking if I wanted anything.
There’s really no quick way of knowing what’s exactly in that particular bookstore, so I passed on the opportunity.

Upon his return he handed me a copy of Nicholas Wolterstorff’s Lament For A Son.
Turns out he was able to select something more perfect than anything I could have asked for.

Nicholas Wolterstorff lost one of his five children, a twenty-five year old son, through an accident.
Lament For A Son is a monograph of reflections on that loss.
It is a modern classic, that I’d heard of and forgotten.

Thanks for good friends.
