Alain Emerson felt like the luckiest man in the world, the talented pastor of a thriving church, he had found and married his soulmate. 

He could never have imagined that, in a matter of months, he would be nursing his 23 year-old wife through the final stages of cancer. The faith that had once seemed secure felt like it was crumbling. 

In Luminous Dark, Emerson walks us through the stages of grief, pain and shock. Taking great comfort from the Psalms and the work of writers who truly understand, he wrestles with God and emerges with a stronger and deeper faith.

Chaired by the Journalist and Broadcaster, Liz Leonard
