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.
Ministering to the mourning is the hardest part of my job. This book has been an invaluable aid over the years.
