UPPER DARBY, Pa., Dec. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Benjamin J. Heidengren's book The Forlorn Hope: Thoughts From A Suffering Life ($13.49, paperback, 9781498472555; $6.99, e-book, 9781498472562), is available for purchase.

The Forlorn Hope: Thoughts From A Suffering Life tells the story of author Benjamin Heidengren, who survived a dangerous car accident but was left with permanent brain damage that led to having anterograde amnesia and no memory of life since his 2011 car accident. In his new book, The Forlorn Hope, Benjamin describes the daily struggles he endures with constant pain and without his memory, likening it to the forlorn hope detachment of soldiers during Revolutionary wartimes. However, Benjamin sees that God's purpose in his life of suffering is to fight for the glory of God and understand suffering like Christ suffered on the cross. Each chapter begins with a personal poem interpreting Benjamin's knowledge of physical pain and the nature of suffering, followed by shared thoughts on his condition, daily challenges, and advice to caregivers on encouraging their suffering loved ones to keep hope alive.

Benjamin J. Heidengren learned about suffering the hard way – through extensive personal experience. He suffered greatly because of his brain damage (the result of a car accident four and a half years ago). Heidengren learned what it means to suffer poorly and to suffer well through experiencing constant mental and physical pain. He also learned what it means to be cared for well and to be cared for poorly by people trying their best (or not) as they attempted care for him.

Xulon Press, a division of Salem Media Group, is the world's largest Christian self-publisher, with more than 12,000 titles published to date. The Forlorn Hope: Thoughts From A Suffering Life is available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com.
