Book Description

Donald Howard was minister of St Peter’s Church, Burwood East, NSW, when his wife Diana, at the age of forty, contracted cancer. She was to live a further six years, but, he writes, although through faith in Christ ‘we were prepared for death, I was ill-prepared for grief.’

This ill-preparedness, he found, arose from a lack of understanding, and two years later he wrote these pages for the help of others. They contain a blend of biblical, pastoral, and personal elements and serve to fill a gap on the subject of bereavement.

    Recently used this little booklet to share with an elder going through grief. What an encouragement and help. As a pastor, resources like this with good support from the scriptures are sparse. This is a good one with a human touch.

    Read this wonderful little booklet, found it very informative…I lost my husband 2 years ago, ordered several to give away. Two other books for the grieving that were also most helpful were Grace for the Widow, by Joyce Rogers and From One Widow to Another, by
    Neff.
