Therese A. Rando

C - Care / CR / Book
Mourning the death of a loved one is a process all of us will go through at one time or another. But wherever the death is sudden or anticipated, few of us are prepared for it or for the grief it brings. There is no right or wrong way to grieve; each person's response to loss will be different. Now, in this compassionate, comprehensive guide, Therese A. Rando, Ph.D., bereavement specialist and author of Loss And Anticipatory Grief, leads you gently through the painful but necessary process of grieving and helps you find the best way for yourself.
10726 When You Lose a Loved One
Charles L. Allen
Fleming H. Revell
ISBN 978-0-8007-5801-3
C - Care / CA / Book
When You Lose a Loved One presents a hopeful message of resurrection and eternal life a message Christians have heard so many times before. But in death's aftermath, people often need assurance of what they know is true about life after death. So Charles Allen offers the bereaved a beautifully crafted reminder that the Easter message robs death of its terror and promises a solution to life's mysteries. Intermingled with Allen's prose are the comforting poems of Helen Steiner Rice. With an updated look and new organization, this encouraging book will bring meaning and hope to those who have lost loved ones.
10725 When Bad Things Happen to Good People
Harold S. Kushner
Avon Books
ISBN 0-380-60392-6
C - Care / CK / Book
For anyone who has ever been hurt by life.
"I knew that one day I would write this book. I would write it out of my own need to put into words some of the most important things I have come to believe and know. And I would write it to help other people who might one day find themselves in a similar predicament. I would write it for an those people who wanted to go on believing, but whose anger at God made it hard for them to hold on to their faith and be comforted by religion. And I would write it for an those people whose love of God and devotion to Him led them to blame themselves for their suffering and persuade themselves that they deserved it."
10724 Death: The Final Stage of Growth
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Simon & Schuster, Inc.
ISBN 0-671-62238-2
C - Care / CR / Book
Ours is a death-denying society. But death is inevitable, and we must face the question of how to deal with it. Coming to terms with our own finiteness helps us discover life's true meaning.
Why do we treat death as a taboo? What are the sources of our fears? How do we express our grief, and how do we accept the death of a person close to us? How can we prepare for our own death?
Drawing on our own and other cultures' views of death and dying, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross provides some illuminating answers to these and other questions. She offers a spectrum of viewpoints, including those of ministers, rabbis, doctors, nurses, and sociologists, and the personal accounts of those near death and of their survivors.
Once we come to terms with death as a part of human development, the author shows, death can provide us with a key to the meaning of human existence.

10718 The Gospel of Ruth: Loving God Enough to Break the Rules
Carolyn Curtis James
Zondervan
ISBN 0-310-26391-3
BSOT - Bible Study Old Testament / BSOTJ / Book
This isn't the Ruth, the Naomi, or the Boaz we thought we knew. Carolyn James has unearthed startling new insights from this well-worn story ... insights that have life-changing implications for you. Naomi is no longer regarded as a bitter, complaining woman, but as a courageous overcomer. A Female Job. Ruth (typically admired for her devotion to Naomi and her deference to Boaz) turns out to be a gutsy risk-taker and a powerful agent for change among God's people. She lives outside the box, and her love for Yahweh and Naomi compels her to break the rules of social and religious convention at nearly every turn. Boaz, the Kinsman Redeemer, is repeatedly caught off-guard by Ruth's initiatives. His partnership with her models the kind of male/female relationships that the gospel intends for all who follow Jesus. Carolyn James drills down deeper into the story where she uncovers in the Old Testament the same passionate, counter-cultural, rule-breaking gospel that Jesus modeled and taught his followers to pursue. Within this age-old story is a map to radical levels of love and sacrifice, combined with the message that God is counting on his daughters to build his kingdom. The Gospel of Ruth vests every woman's life with kingdom purposes and frees us to embrace wholeheartedly God's calling, regardless of our circumstances or season of life. This story of two women who have lost everything contains a profound message: God created women not to live in the shadowy margins of men or of the past, but to emerge as courageous activists for his kingdom.
