I have been leading a GriefShare group for 5+ years. When I discovered this book I had hoped it would help provide me with some direction so that I would be more comfortable in my role as a facilitator of people who had lost a loved one. This book was exactly what I needed. It reinforced those areas where my conduct was appropriate and provided me with some excellent examples and guidelines that will help me improve in that role and in my personal interactions with friends who have lost a loved one.

This book is perfect for anyone who is suffering or is helping someone through suffering. It is clear and concise, well-written and easy to read.Dr. Wright offers deep insight as one who has lived through suffering himself and as one who has helped many others survive their own suffering.

I downloaded this book from my local library, and thus read no reviews. There is some help to avoid the worst responses, ones anyone seeking to become more sensitive probably would not make anyway. It is a conventionally Protestant, Bible-quoting work that is also full of recommendations to read the author's other books.
