Overview

Grief Relief from the Bible: A Workbook on Finding Strength in Times of Loss draws on the wisdom of scripture and the insights of secular therapists to help those dealing with loss. The book is divided into two sections.

1. The first section defines grief, provides opportunities for detailing our own grief, then outlines some biblical and secular approaches for dealing with it.

2. The second section contains the 104 grief passages from the Bible, with brief attached descriptions and questions to help you go deeper.

Who grieves?

The Lord grieves.

Human beings grieve.

Peoples and nations grieve.

What causes their grief?

Human wickedness is the first cause of grief in the Bible

Loss also causes grief:

of a spouse, of a parent, of a child

of a family member, friend, companion, leader

of familiar places, things, and practices

However fractured our society may be, grief is one experience nearly all of us have in common. Furthermore, secular societies like our own often have trouble helping the grieving. At some point in grief, the distractions cease to distract, the denials ring hollow, and the medications stop working. With that comes a realization:

If what we trust doesn't help us deal with grief, can we find something that will?



Here is Grief Relief from the Bible.

...help for those who are hurting.
