A Church for Rachel is a collection of discourses written for, and among, those who mourn, grieve, struggle, and wonder. The “Rachel” in the title is the Rachel in the Bible, the Rachel who died birthing Benjamin in Genesis, and subsequently became a symbol for sadness in Matthew and Jeremiah: “Rachel, weeping for her children who are no more.” The church in the title is any church anywhere that surrounds the Rachels of this world with good theology, strong support, and tender care. Sooner or later, almost everyone will weep Rachel’s tears, so, sooner or later, almost everyone will need a family of faith to help them go through what they could not go around, a church for Rachel.
