Two Minus One Equals One
Teaching on coping with bereavement.
“Death has its own diary. Sometimes it sends its visitor’s card in advance; at other times it turns up unexpectedly and unannounced. Death’s visits often seem random, meaningless and, in the minds of many, unjust. Invariably, however, those left behind find themselves grappling with a miscellany of emotions and thoughts which have to be worked through.”
In this book Geoff Treasure offers hope, comfort and advice to those who are grieving the loss of a loved one, with sensitivity and understanding. Himself a widower, Geoff relates the emotions, questions and challenges common to those who are suffering with grief. Using the biblical story of Lazarus as a reference and his own experiences as examples, Geoff provides practical help and warm encouragement whilst recognising the very personal nature of suffering.
