Grief Recovery Resources

Since losing our sweet son to cancer in January of 2009, we have read several books which have greatly helped us walk through this grief journey. Although we don’t necessarily embrace each theological point expressed in every book, still we came away with rich, sustaining enlightenment that has enabled us to keep pressing on.

Below is a list that you may want to explore, whether you are one on the same road as us, or you have a loved one who is.

Someday we will have our own book to add to this list, but until then we highly recommend these:

  • Living When A Loved One Has Died – Earl Grollman

  • A Grief Observed – C.S. Lewis

  • Confessions of a Grieving Christian – Zig Ziglar

  • Heaven Revealed – Paul Ennz

  • When Grief Leaves the Dictionary and Comes to Your Home – Kindah Greening

  • Grief – The Toothache of the Soul – Kindah Greening

  • Life After Death – Tony Cooke

  • Within Heaven’s Gates (also titled: My Dream of Heaven) – Rebecca Springer

  • Where’s the Miracle – Tom Penny

  • Lament for a Son – Nicholas Wolterstorff

  • Return From Tomorrow – George G. Ritchie & Elizabeth Sherrill

  • The Bereaved Parent – Harriet Sarnoff Schiff

  • A Grace Disguised: How the Soul Grows Through Loss – Jerry Sittser

  • My Companion Through Grief – Gary Kinnaman

  • Healing Your Grieving Heart – Alan Wolfelt

  • From Grief to Glory – Harry & Cheryl Salem

  • From Mourning to Morning – Harry & Cheryl Salem

  • The Shack – William Paul Young

  • Leading On Empty – Wayne Cordeiro
  • (This book was particularly helpful for us, although it is more of a book on Burnout. However it does deal with loss on different levels.)

  • Online: 365 daily emails –
  • Griefshare has also released a daily devotional containing most of the same writings as the emails, called Through A Season of Grief – Bill Dunn & Kathy Leonard
