Living Through Bereavement - With the Help of Christian Thought and Prayer

Author: David M. Owen
Publisher: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge
Category: Christian Prayer, Christian Life & Practice, Christian Counselling, Christian Ministry & Pastoral Activity, Coping With Death & Bereavement
Book Format: Paperback

All of us are confronted by death at various times in our lives. Some bereavements are particularly devastating - it may be we are very close to the one who has died, or death has come suddenly, unnaturally or even violently. This anthology of quotations is divided into two sections. The first contains material on the Bible's teaching on life after death; the concept of the soul; the need to face the truth of our own mortality; living to the full; untimely death; suicide; death as the result of disaster and of war. The second focuses on solace in grief; the comfort of Christ; our hope of life in heaven; being reunited with those we love, and the great communion of saints. Each chapter has its own introduction and ends with a selection of prayers.
