Rodger Ragan5 Stars Out Of 5August 31, 2009Rodger RaganThis book is right where I am. I felt and still feel the same thoughts and feelings as CS did in his experience with Joy. Great book and "a must read" for those dealing with Grief.
Cheryl Stotesbery5 Stars Out Of 5January 8, 2001Cheryl StotesberyGood things do indeed come in small packages. Lewis' work on grief so clearly expresses what I felt when my own spouse died. His elegant yet sparse writing captures the essence of grief and the doubts and questions that haunt the mourner. I refer back to this book often in moments of overwhelming grief. My own copy is worn from continual use. The work is so masterful that I keep several copies on hand to give as gifts to those who have experienced a recent death of a loved one. Lewis seems to hold back nothing as he sweeps us along on his own private journey through tragic loss and faith reborn. Far from sugar-coated or trite, Lewis lets us into his own pain and own search for comfort. He boldly addresses the big questions like, "How could God do this?" The book is not depressing, it's affirming in that we see that our own grief is not so different from the grief of others, even at a point in life when we feel so disconnected and like no one understands what it's REALLY like to lose a spouse. Lewis understood what it was really like and he unabashedly tells us. If you or someone you love has lost a loved one, particularly a much-loved spouse, get this book.
