Book Review: Grieving the Loss of a Loved One

Product Details

            This volume carries a subtitle describing its purpose: A Devotional of Comfort as You Mourn. The author, Kathe Wunnenberg, gives the reader encouragement and understanding as she shares about the grief process. One she has experienced several times.

            One thing Ms. Wunnenberg included was a listing of readings for special days-the holidays, special events, birthdays and anniversary, and some specific readings for men and children who grieve, and helping others cope. I liked this feature of her book.
            Ms. Wunnenberg penned 52 devotional readings. The reader can either go straight through them, using one each day or “take a slower pace and meditate on one devotion each week for the next year.” (1)

            I benefitted from reading this book. I would recommend it to those who minister to those suffer loss by losing a loved one to death.

            I received this book from Booklook Bloggers program of Harper Collins publishers via Zondervan. All they asked of me was an impartial review.     

1.)   Found on page xi.


  1. Thanks for sharing this Cecelia, it might indeed be a good book to use while ministering to people who are in pain.

    1. Thank you, Marja. I intend to pass this book along to a dear friend who works with a group she calls Encouragement and Support. The group is made up of women who have lost someone close to them through death.


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
