A useful and informative book on grief ministry. It is easy to read and provides opportunities for ministers to reflect on their own loss and spiritual inventory. It takes one through many facets of the grief process and offers helpful suggestions to the grief minister as he or she ministers to the bereaved. Curley reminds us often that there is no time limit for the grief process and that compassionate listening is the key to understanding what we can do to assist the bereaved in that process.New Theology Review
