In the Presence of Grief-PaperbackIn the Presence of Grief-Paperback
Dorothy S. Becvar

CBD Price: $36.00
( Available to ship on or about 08/30/14. )
Add To Cart
Based on her extensive work as a psychotherapist and a family systems researcher, as well as the loss of her then 22-year-old son, Dr. Becvar offers deep insights into the work of grieving. She says that, as a society, "We fear death, we deny death, and all too often we do anything we can to avoid getting too close to it until we are confronted with the loss of a loved one. Therefore, we find ourselves somewhat uncertain as we attempt to respond to the pain others may be suffering and we are utterly bereft when the pain is our own." Her work sheds light on how we can learn to walk with others down the difficult path of bereavement.
     

 
Mystery of DeathMystery of Death
Adrienne von Speyr
Retail Price: $9.95
CBD Price: $8.96
( Available to ship on or about 08/30/14. )
Add To Cart
Von Speyr addresses the perennial and ultimate human question--the question of death. This book is not only a synthesis of the Christian view of death. It is also an antidote to the insipid sociological sentimentalism of so many books written about death and dying today. Death is not just the last stage of growth or something we must cope with or accept, nor something we must help people do without any fear or feeling of guilt. None of the merely human answers can satisfy because death is a mystery that only God and his Revelation can begin to explain.
