Shelves: pastoral
As a Pastor, ministering to those who are mourning is often very difficult,particularly in the death of a child or a suicide. It is not a book about deep theology, because that is not what is required. It is practical, applicable, and is a tremendous resource. The end of the book contains lists of other recommended books categorized by topics. This list alone is worth the price of this excellent book.
