More About Zig Ziglar
Hilary Hinton "Zig" Ziglar (November 6, 1926 – November 28, 2012) was an American author, salesman, and motivational speaker.
Zig Ziglar was born in Coffee County in southeastern Alabama to parents John Silas Ziglar and Lila Wescott Ziglar. He was the tenth of twelve children.
In 1931, when Ziglar was five years old, his father took a management position at a Mississippi farm, and his family moved to Yazoo City, where he spent most of his early childhood. The next year, his father died of a stroke, and his younger sister died two days later.
Ziglar served in the United States Navy during World War II (c. 1943 to 1945). He was in the Navy V-12 Navy College Training Program and attended the University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina. In 1944, he met his wife, Jean, in the capital city of Mississippi, Jackson; he was seventeen and she was sixteen. They married in late 1946.
Ziglar later worked as a salesman in a succession of companies. In 1968, he became a vice president and training director for the Automotive Performance company, moving to Dallas, Texas.
As of 2010, Ziglar still traveled around taking part in motivational seminars, despite a fall down a flight of stairs in 2007 that left him with short-term memory problems. State Representative Chris Greeley of Maine mentions Ziglar in the credits of his CD on public speaking.
Ziglar wove his Christianity into his motivational work. He was also an open Republican who endorsed former Governor Mike Huckabee for his party's presidential nomination in 2008.
Ziglar, who had been suffering from pneumonia, died at the age of eighty-six at a hospital in Plano, Texas on November 28, 2012.
Zig Ziglar currently resides in Dallas, in the state of Texas.

Reviews - What do customers think about Confessions Of A Grieving Christian?
I thank God for allowing me to encounter this book Jan 30, 2003
My son, Dylan was stillborn at seven months. I miss my sweet boy with every ounce of my being. I have read several books but none have helped me on my road to healing such as this one has. He speaks to the bereaved Christian parent like none other. This book has provided a still and calm in my life through this tumultous journey and I am thankful. I plan on buying this book for several of my friends and highly recommend it to those looking for a little peace through the death of a loved one.
A wonderful comfort for those who are greiving May 1, 2000
Shortly after I bought this book, several people I knew passed on and Zig's words and insights about comfort, peace and wisdom were a real shining light for me - helping me write and say things that brought comfort to others.
It is a powerful book that is worth reading and re-reading. It is definitely a foundational book for every Christian's library.
The only reason I didn't give it FIVE stars was because he didn't address a loss that stings even worse than death - and that is rejection by a loved one.
With spousal and parental abandonment going on in record numbers, I think there is a great need for a work (like Zig's Confessions of a Greiving Christian) on healing the grief occasioned by rejection and abandonment.
He spoke frequently about how much love there was (and is!) in his family and I loved hearing about it and I love his openess in sharing his heart with all the world, but there are a lot of families that don't have that strong anchor of love at their core, and they need healing and support too.
Nonetheless, Zig's book is a treasure. It's too good to borrow at the library. This is something you'll want for highlighting and referring back to - again and again.
It's the way to heal a broken heart.... Sep 10, 1999
I picked up the book because my husband's father was dying, and I didn't know how to comfort him or his family. Up till that point in my life, I hadn't lost anyone close to me. Mr. Ziglar was so open with his grief and I found myself weeping at nearly every chapter! But in the end, just like Mr. Ziglar, I felt like I was basking in the most unbelievable love and grace...and peace. I purchase this book for everyone I know who has lost someone close. On final note, his description of Psalm 23 has changed me.
BEST SPIRITUAL CONTExT FOR A GRIEVING MOM Sep 8, 1999
The very "meat" of this book was spiritually enriching for me, as my 9 year daughter was killed in an auto accident one year ago. Although I am a Christian--I had many questions and thoughts that this book addressed to ease my pain. Although it doesn't provide answers, per se, it does provide assurance that in heaven--our questions won't seem so important after all. I know where my sweetheart is, and I know I'll meet her there again someday.
You'll be blessed & comforted reading this book on Grief! Dec 15, 1998
Zig Ziglar shares his own story of his daughter Suzan's death and his own grief. By doing so, his words remind us to look to God, who gives us comfort and encourages us and deepens our faith and understanding. The book helps to show us that God will help us get through the difficult times not only in our own grief, but in ministering to others who are experiencing grief themselves. We first purchased Zig Ziglar's book "Confessions of a Grieving Christian" to give to our son when he lost two very good friends in an accident. At that time, we only purchased one copy for our son. We began reading and looking through it before we gave it to him, and just couldn't put it down so we then obtained a copy for ourselves as well. We have had the pleasure of hearing Zig Ziglar speak in person before. He's well known around the country as a motivational speaker who shares his humor and enthusiasm. This book has encouraged and blessed us. Our son has read it through and is now sharing with other family and friends what he has read in hopes of helping them through their grief. I write this in memory of these two young men who died and their families who are grieving their loss.
