Book Review: Courage for the Unknown Season


What’s next? How can I get through the changing seasons of life? Life no doubt often holds changes in store that we don’t like, can’t anticipate, or have trouble navigating.

Courage for the Unknown Season by Jan Silvious promises to provide confidence and hope for those who want to arm themselves through the choppy waters of life changes. Unlike Miriam Neff’s book Where Do I Go From Here?, there’s something about Courage for the Unknown Season that makes it a book that should be more targeted towards those in the latter part of their lives. It’s rare that I would say this about any book, but Silvious’ book just doesn’t reach well to people at all life stages. Even more, when I started reading it, I was staring a major life challenge in the eye. The book didn’t make me feel better, and it didn’t offer me any hope. When major life challenges happen, optimism, for some of us, isn’t the best route – we need to grieve first and then move on.

Some people, no doubt, are going to majorly benefit from this book. I just was not one of them.
