|A Must Have for those Greiving Jul 21, 2008|
|I have bought at least a dozen copies of this book and given it as a gift to family and friends going through a loss of a loved one. It speaks to your heart and soul.|
|Fantastic Book! Jul 26, 2007|
|This book is incredibly helpful for anyone who has lost someone in their life. Although is it written from a Christian perspective, it does address MANY of the universal feelings of grief to which anyone can relate, Christan or not. It is an easy read, well written, and can be finished in less than an hour.|
However, that is not to say someone with fresh grief could tolerate the chapters all at once. It seems like it is meant to be read over time, allowing each of the chapters to serve it purpose in the long and difficult process of recovery. Not just for the loss of older people, it is empathetic to the loss of young life also.
After reading this myself, I have bought multiple copies to send as gifts to others. It is really hard to find something that is appropriate to give the family who has lost a loved one, and this seemed so appropriate.
|Comfort in a time of sorrow Jul 4, 2007|
|This book was actually given to me when my husband passed away by my brother who had lost his wife 3 years prior and it had been given to him. I found it to be extremly helpful in knowing where I was in grieving and what to expect in this journey. It is different than many books on grieving. It is written in "letters" to someone. Actually, it is a compilation of several people who were grieving and the author addresses the issues to one person named "Peter". I bought several copies to have on hand to give away if the need arises. It is truly a "comfort in a time of sorrow".|
|Excellent Resource for the Grieving Christian Nov 6, 2006|
|This book answers many questions one has when a loved one goes to be with the Lord. It is a source of comfort and strength to the Believer who is grieving.|
|This book gives hope and encouragement for the grieving. Sep 21, 1998|
|This book was given to me by my best friend at the time of my mother's death. It was such a comfort to me, I read it several times in just a few short months. It helped me to better understand and cope with the feelings and emotions I was experiencing. The author used a lot of scriptures to show how God comforts us in our sorrow. I purchase this book and give it as often as the need arises.|
