Reviews - What do customers think about Your Particular Grief?
A classic book on grief from a Christian perspective Jun 1, 2007
Wayne Oates was one of the most gifted therapists in pastoral care and counseling for decades in the United States, and you could think of this as his letter of consolation to grieving Christians. There are few reviews here because the book has been in print so long. Despite this, Dr. Oates' kind and caring spirit comes through, along with wisdom from many years of helping people through the difficulty of losing loved ones.
My review May 28, 2000
I read this book and it helped me out on my grief of a loved one. He shows me how to deal with my grief and would tell others to read it too.
