Of Grief and Greatness
Sonnets by Jessa R. Sexton
ISBN 978-0-999-009017

The poems in these pages weren’t written for publication. They weren’t written assuming you’d one day hold this book in your hands. They were the ponderings of my pencil and my heart. Called “brave and beautiful” by one of my pre-readers, this book is a mirror of my mind, reflecting, in an anxious intimacy, both how broken and how hopeful I am.

To complement this sometimes challenging art form, I’ve included concrete devotionals, inspiring coloring pages, a topical index, and brief introductions for each of the twenty-five sonnets. These poems are a journey for us. I’ve walked with them thus far, and now I invite you to walk through them with me.

 

"Jessa Sexton's collection of sonnets cut straight to my heart. I was looking at snapshots of my life. Honest words of real pain, hope, and redemption. Don't miss these encouraging gems.  I intend to spread them far and wide."

"In times of grief and despair, we desperately seek vestiges of hope to cling to. Beautifully written, Of Grief and Greatness gives us permission to feel depths of sorrow while remaining safely held in the Great and Eternal Hope we have in Christ. What a lovely gift to give someone who's hurting."
