Highly Recommended Reading for Christians Encountering Similar Loss.
September 4, 2014
Excellent. My wife and I found this book of tremendous help in dealing with our grief, and our questions, following the deaths of two of our young grandchildren (two years apart). We appreciated its honest approach to the issues that a Christian family faces in such circumstances, reinforced by the fact that the Guthries were writing from first-hand experience of the loss of their own children. We were able to relate entirely with many of the situations that they faced, such as the reaction of friends and the thoughtless comments that come from people who have never had to face the personal loss of a child. Highly recommended.
A wonderful resource for anyone going through loss

This book gives an honest, genuine and realistic, yet hopeful view on one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. The Guthrie's transparency is so insightful in looking at the way a man and woman process loss and grief. I would recommend this book to anyone, and especially those who have lost a child. A grieving person is looking for answers. This book, though it doesn't answer the question, 'why', helps to validate the feelings, emotions, and expressions of the one who is grieving.
Very honest and beautifully written. I gave a copy to a couple who recently suffered a loss and read the other copy I bought. I recommend this book for anyone who is dealing with a loss. It also helps you understand the different ways that we all grieve.
Nancy & David Guthrie share some of their own experiences and also others to help families who are going through their own loss. They give perspectives from those who have lost parents, children, spouses and difficult situations like suicide. Very helpful.
