Loss of loved ones is one of the harshest things in life. Pastor Darius lost his wife to cancer, and now his only daughter in a bus crash. Read his incredibly honest account of confusion, grief, loss, loneliness . . . then his progress toward peace, acceptance, understanding, restoration, newness, hope and love.


Having comforted grief-stricken men, women and children countless times in his decades of ministry, and having suffered the grief of losing his wife through cancer, Pastor Darius was a genuine, caring man who was convinced that the God of the Bible is true and good and cares for all. Then, unexpectedly, he witnessed the death of his only daughter in a tragic bus crash. His hopes were dashed, his faith in God shattered.

In this deeply honest, autobiographical account, Pastor Darius describes how time, good people, encouraging music, and especially the Word of God restored his faith and hope and revived his love for people. Groping for God is a telling account of his true-life experiences, which serves as an encouragement to all.

The pictures on the cover of the book are from the actual accident.
