A Grief Observed comprises the reflections of the great scholar and Christian on the death of his wife after only a few short years of marriage. Painfully honest in its dissection of his thoughts and feelings, this is a book that details his paralysing grief, bewilderment and sense of loss in simple and moving prose. Invaluable as an insight into the grieving process just as much as it is as an exploration of religious doubt, A Grief Observed will continue to offer its consoling insights to a huge range of readers, as it has for over fifty years. 'A classic of the genre, a literary answer to the pain of loss.' Robert McCrum

Amid the world-shattering pain of loss, what helps? “After the death of his beloved partner from cancer, Newland finds himself asking how effective his long years of Buddhist practice have been in helping him come to terms with overwhelming grief. This finely written book offers a lucid meditation on what it means to practice the Dharma when everything falls apart.” —Stephen Batchelor, author of Buddhism without Beliefs and After Buddhism In the tradition of C. S. Lewis’s A Grief Observed, Guy Newland offers this brave record of falling to pieces and then learning to make sense of his pain and grief within his spiritual tradition. Drawing inspiration from all corners of the Buddhist world—from Dogen and the Dalai Lama, to Pema Chödrön and ancient Pali texts—this book reverberates with honesty, kindness, and deep humanity. Newland shows us the power of responding fully and authentically to the death of a loved one. “A sad, beautiful, and necessary book—and a map waiting for many who will need it.” —James Ishmael Ford, author of If You’re Lucky Your Heart Will Break “Guy Newland faces squarely the pain of death and the pain of grief and offers a work of uncommon power, insight, and honesty—and extraordinary compassion.” —Jay L. Garfield, author of Engaging Buddhism

Inspired by C. S. Lewis's book A Grief Observed, and at intervals responding to Lewis's thoughts, in this intimate and personal series of journal entries written in the three months after the sudden death of his wife, philosopher and writer Keith Seddon observes his own grief and how it impacts on his life. The exploration of grief is the exploration of the human condition and how self-conscious, sentient beings can face the inevitability of suffering. The author's writings are supported by two essays written by his wife, Jocelyn Almond, that also seek responses and solutions to the problem of evil.

A Mother's Grief Observed is a powerful true story and personal journal which chronicles a mother's grief after the tragic drowning of her young child. Through it, she expresses her intense pain and the comfort only God can give in these times. After her 18-month-old son William drowned in the family pool, Faber opened her heart and soul in a deeply personal journal that chronicles her passages through the various stages of grief. In psalm-like honesty, she pours out to God her struggles with guilt, doubt, fear, longing, trust, disappointment with people, and her own inability to handle the unrelenting pain of her loss. In the midst of the upheavel of grief, she does the only thing she knows to do -- hold on to what she knows to be true about God. Readers see the author move through confusion, shock, and pain toward acceptance and healing. Also written with children in mind since they had to explain the situation to two siblings (three and six years old at time of the tragedy).-- Riveting story, extremely thought-provoking-- Psalm-like in its honesty and moving, poetic style-- Validates bereaved emotions as normal-- Provides healing as reader walks with the author through the first year of bereavement-- Section on how children deal with grief.-- Extensive resources for bereaved and their friends-- Section on forgiveness following a tragedy (forgiving oneself and others who share the blame, forgiving God for allowing it happen).-- Suggested reading lists for children and adults.-- Many poems and classic quotes (Army Carmichael, C. S. Lewis, Elisabeth Elliot, Joseph Bayley, etc.)
