This is a book to keep at hand in a crisis, and it would also make a timely gift from a compassionate friend. What we all need most when we’re hurting badly is for someone to look as if they are trying to understand us. Help is to be found within these pages whether grief is acute, or you’re someone afraid of making a blunder and you just want to find the right things to say…
ABOUT THE AUTHORS
All four authors suffered bereavement in unexpected circumstances.
They are a father and son, a GP and a Christian minister. They write in their own individual style and perspective and together cover the emotional, spiritual and practical issues with which bereavement so suddenly confronts us. All the authors have helped to update this new edition of ‘A Help in Grief – coping with the death of someone close’ which has been so much used and a blessing to many in the last few years.
'Buy three copies of this book! Give one to your pastor, one to your local library and keep one for yourself – it is a valuable resource.’

Revd. Robert Thompson in Church Times
‘There is wise guidance given in the various chapters. I have no hesitation in recommending this publication.’
