Endorsements & Reviews-

"Richard L. Morgan has brought into dialogue his years of pastoral ministry with the sick and his appreciation of scripture as a valuable resource.8:25:46 AM8:25:48 AM His meditations bring both challenge (e.g. "Escaping into Sickness") as well as comfort ("This Too Shall Pass"). They are daily thoughts for the sick and the caregiver, mutually engaged in a time of deep significance."

- Frank S. Moyer
Editor, Chaplaincy Today

"Morgan arrives at an understanding that while a catastrophic illness can take control of one's life emotionally, physically and spiritually, it can also point to divine presence and healing. This is a wise and excellent devotional for anyone involved in the land of sickness, be it as the afflicted or as the caregiver."

- Publishers Weekly

"Richard L. Morgan's From Grim to Green Pastures writes of reflections that came to him during his time of illness. This book offers 81 two-page meditations properly sized for those who are being cared for, or those who busily care for them. His excerpts about a "spirituality of illness," serve us well.

- Martin E. Marty, The Christian Century

"For the day when I am ill again I keep a mental list of books I would take to the hospital. From Grim to Greener Pastures joins that list. As a witness to illness, Dick Morgan, tells the truth. Whether you reread this book as a pastoral guide through illness or as spiritual preparation for the day you too become ill, it can bring grace to suffering."

- Arthur W. Frank, author of At the Will of the Body: Reflections on My Illness
