Written in a highly readable and
thought-provoking style, Joel Freeman encourages
readers to seek a greater understanding of their
feelings of loss and grief through personal
reflection. He also prompts discussion about their
expectations of themselves, God and others.
This book is not filled with glib answers, which serve to drive
honest strugglers into deeper disillusionment. Drawing
on his years of experience in counseling people
through their grief and suffering, Dr. Freeman
provides a framework upon which can be found true,
lasting peace and security.
Endorsed by Joni Eareckson Tada, Billy Graham, Paul Meier and

poignant stories and touches of humor in revealing a
biblical perspective on these questions. You are about
to embark upon a remarkable journey.
