Great book for those dealing with grief Feb 3, 2009
After reading this book, I decided to use it as the core of a bible study for people experiencing a loss. The attendees of the class are finding it very helpful. It is easy to read. The questions and ideas at the end of each chapter are thought provoking - encouraging people to move through the grief process at their own pace. I would highly recommend this book to others who wish to do a small group study.

The Most Helpful and Insightful Book on Grief! Sep 12, 2008
Having read "On The Road to Emmaus" by Myrlene Hamilton Hess, I found this book to be an incredible journey of tears, smiles, forgiveness, grace and hope. I was touched by the stories of others and, although each relayed a different grief journey, there was a commonality of feelings that felt so familiar. This book was written by "one who knows what grief and loss feels and acts like" ~ in her role as a pastor and from her own personal experiences ~ which made this book so relevant. Although I would not "wish" this grief journey on others, I am grateful to know that I can refer this book as a wonderful resource of comfort, peace and understanding, to others like myself who have traveled down this painful road. ~ Judith Johnnie
