Publisher's Description

            There is nothing more devastating than the death of a loved one. And whether it comes suddenly and unexpectedly, or at the end of a long and painful illness, every death is experienced anew, a shocking loss that takes our breath away and leaves us disoriented and lost.

            Grief is mysterious, misunderstood, and experienced differently from individual to individual, yet there are certain universal elements. In this compassionate epistolary handbook on grief, a pastor offers comfort and understanding to a man suffering a profound loss, showing grief as a healthy process that God can use to mend broken hearts.

            Revised and updated, this twentieth-anniversary edition features prayers and scripture meditation, as well as a new introduction and epilogue. Simple, profound, personal, compassionate … When You Lose Someone You Love tenderly walks the grief-stricken through sorrow to peace and, eventually, renewed joy.

    This is a gentle and encouraging book which will be helpful to many folks experincing grief. Chapters include When Death Comes, The Tides of Grief, The Pitfalls of Grief, and The Depth of His Love, among others. Since each chapter is written in the form of a letter, they are brief and easy to read. Those experiencing grief often have a hard time focusing on one thing for very long, and this book provides truth in small doses.

    Richard Exleys book, When You Lose Someone You Love is, to me, a deeper continuance of the previous book I reviewed on grief by Thomas O. Mason. This book, too, is a mans perspective and directed to men, although this one could definitely be helpful for women as well.Richards book is written in letter form so he can speak to you directly and in a very personal manner. His letters are in response to letters written to him. He claims, Nothing I have written will take your pain awayonly God can do thatbut it will help you understand what you are experiencing, and how to get through it.Chapters include (italics are my descriptions):1. When Death Comesinitial moments to days after the funeral2. Without Warningunspeakable pain to tragic truth3. The Truth About Griefemptiness to encouragement4. The Tides of Griefunimaginable tidal waves to redemptive work of grief5. The Pitfalls of Grieftemptation to pretend to wallowing in grief6. The Promise of His Presencequestioning Gods presence to Godly comfort7. The Depth of His Lovecan you trust God to Gods love8. If God Is for Ussenseless tragedy to redemption9. In My Fathers Houseis there life after death to new lifeRichard goes into great personal detail on each chapter subject, ministering, encouraging and empathizing. Each chapter also includes a prayer and Scripture reference pertinent to the subject handled. The prayers are so heartfelt that they minister straight to your heart. This is a very personal and intimate resource of great value for someone who has never been through the grieving process, bringing them back to a state of joy, or for someone who wants to minister to the grieving.

    Do you have a friend who has been grieving a loss? You feel helpless and don't know what to do? This little book is a good resource to have on hand, for you to read to understand grief as well as helpful for the grieving friend. This compilation of "letters" to David are well written, short and to the point and very helpful for someone who is dealing with grief.When I read this book I realized that this is something that is a universal thing, and not just with death. People do not know how to deal with grief. When I lost my great-grandfather, I was so upset. I cried straight for 3 days and someone told me, "It's enough." I am not sure that was the right thing to do as I still feel like it was never enough, but at least he said something. Some people avoid you or treat you like you have a plague. There was a quote in the book from C.S. Lewis that something like "I wonder if there should be a leper colony for the grieving." It feels that way when you see people hesitate to approach you as they are not sure if you will burst into tears and not know what to do or if they talk cheerily about their life, you hate them. It is the perfect book to send instead of a card, when you do not know what to say...I know I will be thinking of this book when I hear someone lost a loved one.

    When You Lose Someone You Love by Richard Exley is a short, perfect book for those grieving from a loss. Exley wrote this book eighteen years ago, and it has lost none of its impact or import. Framed as a series of letters to a man named David who has recently lost his beloved spouse, Exley addresses the different stages of grief, from numbness and shock to anger at God to the waves of grief that occur even two years after a loss. He encourages the reader not to ignore the more difficult questions that the death brings: why did God let it happen? how can a good God allow suffering? The book is thin, because what person grieving wants to read a long book, but it packs a powerful punch by focusing on what matters most and always inspiring the reader to turn to God, no matter what the emotion. There are short prayers at the end of each chapter that may help to soothe the soul as well. I know just who I will pass this book on to; it's the kind of book that will be passed from wounded soul to wounded soul, offering healing to each as it travels.
