Endorsements & Reviews-

"This theological engagement is a valuable addition to the literature on reproductive losses."
--Warren Carter, Saint Paul School of Theology, Kansas City

"The women who share their stories here inscribe new ways of doing theology that are at once both faith-filled and personal, and yet wonderfully catholic."
--Mary Hess, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota

"This compact volume fills a void with its theological attention to the experience of reproductive loss. Its hard-won insights are wrought in and from the authors' personal stories of loss, wide-ranging scholarship, and pastoral sensibilities."
--David McCurdy, Senior Ethics Consultant and Director of Organizational Ethics at the Park Ridge Center for the Study of Health, Faith, and Ethics

"Hope Deferred fills a huge gap in the available literature addressing the theological issues in reproductive loss . . . A volume that gets beyond the simplistic platitudes about God and faith in the midst of such a loss."
--Joyce Ann Mercer, San Francisco Theological Seminary and the Graduate Theological Union

"Compelling, even riveting, vividly honest, courageous, eloquent and profound. What a welcome antidote to a culture obsessed with biological motherhood and a church largely silent on reproductive loss!"
--Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore, E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of Pastoral Theology at Vanderbilt University Divinity School and author of Let the Children Come and Also a Mother

"With honesty, insight, and grace, the collaborators in this project weave the many colored threads of their individual experiences of loss into a rich tapestry of hope."
--Barbara Pitkin, Stanford University

"Theology never gets more honest, brave, passionate, compassionate, or insightful than this."
--William C. Placher, Charles D. and Elizabeth S. LaFollette Distinguished Professor in the Humanities, Wabash College
