A must read for anyone who has experienced loss!!

Gerald Sittser has written one of the best treatments on how to respond to any significant loss that happens in life. He is clear to point out that living brings with it suffering. Life includes both sorrow and joy, pain and pleasure. A person must learn to live with both. How we respond to the our pain is a choice that we must make. He carefully and gracefully reveals how a person can embrace the pain and grow from the experience regardless of how tragic the event. As we embrace the pain and learn to live with whatever has brought the pain by the grace of God, we will become whole people once again.

Excellent insight into the emotions, feelings, etc. of grief

Our 17 year old daughter was recently killed in a freak auto accident. We have had several books recommended to us, but none captures the essence of feelings, emotions, and sensations of the grieving process like this book. Mr. Sittser has been there, and has captured the essence of the journey in a way that will touch and challenge the reader. His "sailing on the sea of nothingness" analogy is right where we are now. His other descriptions and examples are right on point. Highly recommended reading..

best, most insightful book on grief I've ever read

As a nurse, I work with many families who suffer tragic loss. Mr. Sittser's book is the best I've ever read. Don't expect to read it in one sitting. It is very deep and wise and thought-provoking. It's the type of book you could read three or four times and still learn something new each time. Thank you Mr. Sittser for sharing your tremendous insight with us.

The Best Book on Grief & Loss that I've read so far.

Since loosing my daughter,husband,mother and unborn grandchild within an 11 month period I have been searching for answers of so many questions. While this author didn't always have the answers, it was a great comfort to me to see that he had most of those same questions, and was trying to work through them from a Christian perpective. At no time did he try to minimise the pain, but yet was able to experience even some joy, and to come to a peace, and strength to carry on and not stay enbittered for the rest of his life.He went through all this before me so this gives me hope to come through it with a stronger reliance on the grace of God, regardless of the terrible events that happened.It helps to know that someone has survived and grown stronger. Thank you for a wonderful book that gives help and hope.
