Item description for When a Baby Dies: Answers to Comfort Grieving Parents by Ronald H. Nash...

Overview
Is my baby with God now? What does the Bible say to such a question? What hope does it offer parents grieving the loss of a precious child? The answers are merciful; however, the implications are not simple. Is God a universalist? Is there salvation after death? What is the role of infant baptism? And what about the doctrine of depravity? If a baby is born into sin, then what? For parents seeking solace for their grief, and for pastors looking for biblical grounds to offer comfort and assurance, this much needed book offers insights that are rich in hope and grounded solidly in Scripture.

Publishers Description
'Is my baby with God now?' What does the Bible say to such a question? What hope does it offer parents grieving the loss of a precious child? The answers are merciful. However, the implications are not simple. Is God a Universalist? Is there salvation after death? What is the role of infant baptism? And what about the doctrine of depravity? If a baby is born into sin, then what? What happens to the unborn -- to the miscarried and the aborted? For pastors looking for biblical grounds to offer comfort and assurance, and for parents seeking solace for their grief, When a Baby Dies offers insights that are rich in hope and grounded solidly in Scripture.

Reviews - What do customers think about When A Baby Dies?

A terrible book. Not recommended for bereaved parents.  Apr 17, 2005
I bought this book thinking it would help me to find some answers, maybe just maybe give me some hope that my daughter is safe and in heaven. Instead it just confused me. I tried reading it in the early months after my daughter's death and again about a year later and I still found it to be way too involved for me to read and/or understand. This book is probably best used by people who want to figure out their theology on what happens when a baby dies, ie. if they go to heaven or not and why or why not.
Again I would say this book is NOT recommended for bereaved parents, the title makes the book sound helpful but the truth is the content of this book will probably leave you more frustrated and discouraged than you were when you started to read the book and wondering why you wasted your money. There is nothing comforting or uplifting about this book, it is just this man's platform for his own personal views on whether babies who die go to heaven or not.
 
A Theology of Death  Oct 25, 2004
There are many different types of books on grief; I think on that we can all agree. Some have personal stories of how parents survived the death of their child. Some are based on the psychology of grief, reassuring us that we're normal for having the kinds of questions we do. Some are strictly theological in nature and attempt to answer the questions "why" and "what now." Those are questions I asked myself after our daughter died halfway through my pregnancy. This book is not an attempt to console and IT IS NOT MEANT TO! For me, understanding the theological elements involved in her death gave me the kind of comfort I was looking for. Don't criticize the title or the style just because theological answers don't comfort you.

Look at who the author is and you'll quickly see that he's not trying to give you a hug and comfort you. He's trying to help you THINK correctly about the death of your child. For some people, that helps. Nash's theology of death is based on Calvinist theology, so don't let that irk you either. If he believed any other way theologically, he wouldn't have the kind of answers he does. He's not arrogant- he's stating those beliefs which he holds that he also believes are factual. Its a shame then whenever people get assertive about their beliefs these days, its called arrogance.

This book is for those who need to organize their THOUGHTS about the death of their child, not their feelings. For feelings, read Empty Cradle, Broken Heart (another one I recommend.) KNOWING that my daughter is in heaven is not a feeling. It stems from a theological understanding of prenatal/neonatal death. Understand that THIS is the author's objective in writing this book. This book IS for grieving parents- just not for parents who are looking for someone to comfort their feelings (and there is NOTHING wrong with needing to have one's feelings comforted.)
 
Outstanding! Extremely helpful for grieving parents.  May 21, 2003
This book means so much to me. Someone gave me a copy of this book when my three-year-old daughter died in a car accident. This book gave me the comfort that I needed. I recommend it for any parent who is grieving because of a lost child. I know how it feels to lose a child, and this book will comfort you. It will answer all the questions you may have.
 
Was not comforting  Sep 28, 2002
Someone gave my husband and I this book after the full term loss of our second baby. Fortunately, I had read other much more comforting books on the subject of pregnancy/infant loss before opening this one. I never completely got through this book, it was a theological discussion and not comforting. I needed to read books written by people who had gone through loss, who were offering comfort and support.

If you are reviewing this book because you have lost a precious baby. First, my heart goes out to you. It is a devastating and soul-wrenching loss. Secondly, I would recommend my two favorite books on the subject: Silent Cradle and A Deeper Shade of Grace. In both these books the authors share their personal stories of loss, healing and hope.
