Description

Life requires death as its conclusion. This is part of the human condition. Growth from death is only an option. Growth is a goal that can only be achieved with effort. Many people are “torn down” by grief and it sets them back. I have had family and friends that have never recovered from loss. Growing is a choice. Choose growth or choose life. The decision is only yours. The wise choice is growth.

About Tom Morris:

I was spared any direct experience with funerals until I was twenty-three years old. Yes, there had been deaths in our family. My maternal grandfather and within months my grandmother died when I was eight, but they lived far away. My mother went back for one of the two funerals. I had neighbors and friends who died but attending their funerals never crossed my mind. Looking back, I know my parents were trying to protect me from death. Out of sight, out of mind was the prevailing attitude of the age. Even when my father’s mother died I was unaware of the funeral. Finally, during seminary, while serving as a student assistant pastor, I attended and conducted my first funeral. Since then, I have lost many family members and friends through the years. I have come to understand much better what it means “to be aquainted with grief.” Unexpectedly, I lost a friend in the ministry to AIDS, which was a terrible loss and shock in 1994. I realize that I may have been a “late starter” in dealing with death, but like almost every person, as I have gotten older, my awareness of death has grown. Sooner or later, death gets everyone’s attention.

A new perspective on death and growth?

:
The great fact of life is death. We expend a lot of effort trying to avoid this totally predictable event. We fill our lives with so much business, work and play that we hardly ever consider it, that is, until it rears its ugly head. And then we find it shocking and unimaginable.

Every loss we experience and fear we have is related, ultimately, to death. Therefore, Wisdom would say, Let us come to terms with this great fact. It's not just something the old and sick must face. Death and loss could hit any of us at any point -- even young people.

This is where Tom Morris' book Growing Through Grief comes in. Working within the biblical worldview, it is sympathetic to those with other worldviews. It's an empathetic, practical meditation on death and loss -- and how various layers of grief accompany this universal human experience. Whether our pain is physical, emotional, social and spiritual, this book helps us work through it.
