The God of All Comfort: Finding Your Way into His Arms
I read this book in one night. So many stories gripped me, kept me turning pages. I remember one where she was curled up into a fetal position in her bed, sobbing for the Lord to be with her. But she felt completely alone, abandoned. A memory came to her of when she was a first time mom, trying to calm her baby and to get him to nurse. He would wail and fight her, despite her attempts. Finally he ...

Great book and an enjoyable read. Highly recommend this book. Also, Atlantic Book Company did a great job with timely fulfillment.
Drops Like Stars: A Few Thoughts on Creativity and Suffering
Easy read - good message
The thing I like about this book is Rob Bell's impactful writing style. It's not meant to pack in a ton of information, instead it reads more like a movie or story. It's a very expressive book - using big photos at times and few words at other times to stop you reading and really let you think about what you are reading. Cool cool book.
The Grieving Garden: Living with the Death of a Child
Susan K. Gilbert
Hampton Roads Pub Co
A must read for friends of grieving parents
I also bought this book to preview for a friend who's child has a fatal disease. I hope it will be a great resource for her when she needs it. It is very appropriate and hopefully will help me to be a better friend when she needs me. It is very well written with many differing experiences described by grieving parents.
For Bereaved Grandparents
Margaret H. Gerner
Good advice for grieving grandparents
Truly comforting book for a grieving grandparent. It's one thing to work in the world psychotherapy, quite another to live the grief of a beloved grandchild. As it says in the book, grandparent grief is two pronged; grief for the loss of a young and loved life and grief that your children have to experience this grief, and there is little you can do except to be there. Another good book to ...
The Bereaved Parent
Harriet Sarnoff Schiff
I have to highly recommend this book for a bereaved parent. It made me realize that the things that are happening to me and my family, happen to others and I am no alone. I can't say enough about it.

Getting to the Other Side of Grief: Overcoming the Loss of a Spouse
Baker Books, 1998
One Mans Opinion
This is an excellent book for help in coping with the loss of a loved one. I use it in my ministry to help those needing help during their time of sorrow, and they tell me that it helps more than any other books they've read.
Creative Interventions for Bereaved Children
PRACTICAL, USER-FRIENDLY AND GREAT ACTIVITIES
This book (and Liana's other books) has been an invaluable resource for my private practice. I find that the various sections of the book and the order in which they are placed, guide the clinician through the therapeutic process in a clear and concise manner. Liana's book walks the practitioner through the various "stages" of therapy, beginning with engagement, assessment and intervention ...
The Ride: A Shocking Murder and a Bereaved Father's Journey from Rage to Redemption
Da Capo Press, 2009
Read and learn!
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing the author Mr. MacQuarrie and Jeffrey's father Bob on my show. Mr MacQuarrie has done an excellent job of chronicling the events and aftermath of Jeffrey Curley's horrible murder and rape. Mr. Curley has been incredibly brave and kind in his willingness to share his experiences to save the lives of other children. This book is not about encouraging you ...

Sacred Dying: Creating Rituals for Embracing the End of Life
Da Capo Press
A "must read" for all human beings
This is one of the books I recommend as a "must read" for all human beings! I only wish I had found this book years ago when I was helping a loved one navigate her own death. I was so ill equipped, mentally and emotionally. I would have done things so differently-- this book has made me view the dying process (and the possibilities for making it incredibly special) in a whole new way. Megory ...
Nobody's Child Anymore
If you've lost both parents, this book is a must
I had lost both parents by age 40 - this is the first book I found that addresses the grief that comes even with the loss of "imperfect" parents and helps you see that your feelings are completely logical. Can't recommend this enough if you are in this unfortunate place.
Hope...the Best of Things
Good News Publishers/Crossway Books, 2008
Excellent Source of Encouragement
I have bought probably 16 - 20 of these what would be described as booklets. Usually they have been buy 3 get one free making them just ~$3 apiece. Written by a woman who has been a quadriplegic for now over 40 years, this famous speaker, writer, AND artist (using brush with her teeth) offers hope to those who might be going through hard times of all types. She refers to the famous quote from ...

How Could a Loving God?
Master Books; imprint, 2007
Answers for grieving people
How Could a Loving God by Ken Ham is a very helpful book to explain why sad things happen (even to good people). The book helps you process your emotional pain while believing in a loving God. After borrowing a book from a friend to read, I purchased 2 copies to have ready to pass on to other grieving friends to help. I would highly recommend this healing read.
Grief, Transition, and Loss: A Pastor's Practical Guide (Creative Pastoral Care and Counseling)
Wayne Edward Oates
Augsburg Fortress Publishers
Good things come in small packages
The book 'Grief, Transition, and Loss: A Pastor's Practical Guide', is a wonderfully compact gem of writing. This small book can be read by most in about an hour (for dyslexics like me, about two hours), but the lessons can last a lifetime. This is a very practical guide (just as the title indicates), but I regret the title says 'Pastor's', because this book can be used by far more, and subtitle ...
