"So deep, so simple, so true, so practical, so honest, and so wise that it will surely be of much help to anyone who is hobbling painfully through the valley of loss."--Lewis B. Smedes, professor emeritus of theology and ethics, Fuller Theological Seminary"Universal understanding coupled with compelling practical advice. All will benefit from the authors' valuable insights and guidance in the agonizing challenge of spousal loss."--Rabbi Dr. Earl A. Grollman, author of Living When a Loved One Has Died"Professionally sound psychological and theological analysis of the subject of grief. The authors' personal self-disclosure regarding their own grief experiences brings flesh and blood reality to the abstract process of grieving. ... Both authors challenge readers to work out their grief without avoidance and with the assurance that God is a partner in this painful journey of healing."--Arthur E. Jongsma Jr., psychologist, Psychological Consultants

Practical guide
4 stars By Jo, Sep 03 2009
An excellent, no nonsence, practical guide to dealing with a widowers grief.  Great for both men and woman and particularly helpful for younger widowers. The two authors give both the writing of the pyscologist and the pastor.  The clinical advise is then immediately reinforced with words of faith. Well worth a read and would be a good gift.
