For fifty years, Good Grief has helped millions of readers find comfort and rediscover hope after loss. Now this classic text is available in a new edition, with an afterword by the author's daughters explaining how the book came to be.
In Good Grief, Granger E. Westberg uses gentle wisdom and acute insight into human nature to guide readers through the ten stages of grief: shock, emotion, depression, physical distress, panic, guilt, anger, resistance, hope and, finally, acceptance. Recognizing that grief is complex and deeply personal, he defines no `right' way to grieve but rather offers valuable insights into the emotional and physical responses we might experience during the natural process of grieving. Whether mourning the death of a loved one, the end of a marriage, the loss of a job or other difficult life changes, this comforting resource will help renew our faith in a loving, ever-present God.
