This fresh look atgrieving also tells you in a personally applicable wayhow to work through particular grieving processes to emerge on the other side grown and matured.
Many Christians do not handle grief well. Howard Eyrich seeks counsel in the pages of Gods Word and shows you how to work through your grief, emerging on the other side grown and matured.

In his booklet Howard Eyrich gives an fine introduction to the painful experience of grief from a distinctly biblical perspective. He discusses both why and how humans grieve and suggests that it is unnecessary to think, as many people do, that grief must be experienced through a series of stages. Instead, he cites biblical examples to show that grief may be experienced in a variety of ways. Then, he offers practical steps to help the reader process his grief, regardless of the cause.
"Dr. Eyrich has given us a refreshing approach to the all too common experience of grief. I found his survey of the variety of responses to grief exhibited by biblical characters to be a fresh perspective. This booklet achieves the goal of Help and Hope for those who grieve.
This is most practical booklet for helping people deal with issues of grief that I have ever read. It will be a blessing to many.
