1) A Grace Disguised: How the Soul Grows Through Loss
List Price: $9.99Price Disclaimer
A Grace Disguised: How the Soul Grows Through Loss is written by Jerry Sittser – Professor and Chair of Theology at Whitworth University – who lost three generations of his family (his mother, his wife, and his young daughter) in a tragic accident. His book shows us that while most of us will never suffer such a huge, tragic loss, we all will experience loss and grief. The circumstances of these losses are not important; what we do with those circumstances are. This autobiographical book is written from the heart.
2) A Grief Observed
A Grief Observed was written by C.S. Lewis after his wife died of cancer. Although this read is less than 100 pages, it’s impact is great and offers readers a great sense of comfort during times of grief. Four short chapters of intense emotion and introspection end with some resolve through a new understanding of God’s grace in suffering.
3) A Grief Sanctified (Including Richard Baxter’s Timeless Memoir of His Wife’s Life and Death): Through Sorrow to Eternal Hope
A Grief Sanctified (Including Richard Baxter's Timeless Memoir of His Wife's Life and Death): Through Sorrow to Eternal HopePrice Disclaimer
A Grief Sanctified: Through Sorrow to Eternal Hope, by J. I. Packer, includes the memoir of pastor Richard Baxter, whose wife died at age 45. The memoir was written in the 1600’s but remains timeless, moving and helpful for those grieving today.
4) Hearing Jesus Speak into Your Sorrow
In this paradigm-shifting book, Nancy Guthrie gently invites readers to lean in along with her to hear Jesus speak understanding and insight into the lingering questions we all have about the hurts of life: What was God’s involvement in this, and why did he let it happen? Why hasn’t God answered my prayers for a miracle? Can I expect God to protect me? Does God even care? According to Nancy, this questioning is not a bad thing at all but instead an opportunity. It’s a chance to hear with fresh ears the truth in the promises of the gospel we may have misapplied. It lets us retune our souls to the purposes of God we may have misunderstood.
5) When Your Family’s Lost a Loved One: Finding Hope Together (Focus on the Family Books)
All families eventually face the loss of a loved one. When it happens, it can place great strain on a marriage, as well as on other relationships. That’s partly because we don’t know what to do with our feelings and partly because every family member grieves in his or her own way. In this book, Nancy and David Guthrie explore the family dynamics involved when a loved one dies—and debunk some myths about family grief. Through their own experiences of losing two young children and interviews with those who’ve faced losing spouses and parents, they show how grief can actually pull a family closer together rather than tearing it apart.
