Safe in the Arms of God
Truth from Heaven about the Death of a Child
“Is my baby in heaven?” This is the most important question a grieving parent can ask. And even if the little one is someone else’s child, the issue remains: What happens to children—those unborn, stillborn, or youngsters—when they die? Can you hope to see them again? Can you let go of your fear and guilt? Can God’s love soothe a wound so jagged?
With scriptural authority and the warmth of a pastor’s heart, bestselling author John MacArthur examines the breadth of the entire Bible and reveals in this compelling book the Heavenly Father’s care for every life.
“I have sat by the grave of our daughter and son and wondered out loud if my belief that Hope and Gabriel are in heaven has any solid scriptural support. John MacArthur offers truth from God’s Word that puts the doubts of any grieving parent to rest. Safe in the Arms of God reveals that confidence of heaven for the child you love is based much more than mere sentimentality; it is revealed in the Word of God and reflective of the very heart of God.”
