The apostle Paul said Christians do not grieve in the same way as those who do not have hope (1 Thess. 4:13). But that doesn’t mean we don’t or shouldn’t grieve. In The Christian’s Journey Through Grief, Dr. Carol Peters-Tanksley explores the difference in the Christian’s grieving process, showing what a healthy grieving process looks like and how to embrace God’s comfort.
As one who recently experienced the death of her husband, Dr. Carol speaks authoritatively yet compassionately from both a personal perspective and the perspective of a physician and minister. In this book she addresses:
- What to expect while grieving
- What is normal and abnormal grief
- How to deal with the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of grief
- How grief affects one’s relationship with God
- Which steps the grieving person can take toward healing
- How the hope of eternity helps in the journey of grief
Embrace the pain of grief without getting stuck in it, and take God on your journey to experience hope
