Publishers Description This is a book for people who are grieving, specifically for those who in their grieving are searching for answers to questions that might be called "religious," for those who want to find hope when their world appears to be falling apart.A unique feature of the book is that it addresses those who grieve with the insights of two major traditions, Christianity and Judaism. These traditions assure those who grieve that they are not alone in their quest for insights, understanding, and meaning since both deal with such questions as: Are life and death part of a divine plan of reward and punishment? What kind of justice is it when some suffer and others die without pain? Must one accept death without kicking and screaming? Can we look forward to life after death? What is life after death like? How can a person move beyond grieving?The authors of this small book offer readers the opportunity to meet these age-old inquiries and to emerge with hope and acceptance in order to continue a meaningful life.Alan Weitzman is a Rabbi in the Reform movement in Judaism who has specialized in grief processes and is a grief counselor.

Emergency First Responders Please read this book! Jun 16, 2005
People of various occupations respond to large emergency situations. This book will teach you how to become a First Responder, now to interact with the shell shocked living victims who are in a state of disarray and need to sort through their own thoughts about their tragedy, including their perception and belifs about God, in order to return to some semblance of their former lives. Knowing how to respond properly to huge emergencies is critical to the victims who survive in terms of their ability to put their lives back together again. What does not get dealt with in the critical first hours and days may impact on their lives for life, so it is important to know how to respond to these people so that they can recover as much as possible and not be left with insurmountable scars that ruin their lives. People who respond to large tragedies must know how to start and continue the recovery process with the suviving victims. This is the book that tells the helper how to help.
