Give Sorrow Words: A Father's Passage Through Grief

Algonquin Books, 04.01.1996 - 176 Seiten
When Tom Crider's only child, Gretchen, died in an apartment fire at age twenty-one, there seemed to be no answers to his questions. Now Tom Crider has written the book he searched for in his grief and couldn't find, one that offers--without sermons or certainty--companionship in agony and an exploration of spiritual issues related to death. It's a book for good people who've had bad things happen but who can't find consolation in prayer. It's a book for readers--people who would, in sorrow, naturally turn to books for shared experience, reflection, wisdom, comfort in words passed down through the ages. Filled with gleanings from the wisdom and text of many cultures, Tom Crider shares with us the wisdom that helped him find peace and understanding. GIVE SORROW WORDS is a book for any bereaved person facing the loss of a loved one.
