Quick Overview:

In his passionate and direct style, Walter Wangerin, Jr., examines grief and mourning.
OR
 
'Death doesn't wait till the ends of our lives to meet us and to make an end,' says Walter Wangerin. 'Instead, we die a hundred times before we die; and all the little endings on the way are like a slowly growing echo of the final BANG!' Yet out of our many losses, our 'little deaths,' comes a truer recognition of life. It is found in our relationships with ourselves, with our world, with others, and with our Creator. This is the dancing that can come out of mourning: the hope of restored relationships. Mourning into Dancing defines the stages of grief, names the many kinds of loss we suffer, shows how to help the grief-stricken, gives a new vision of Christ's sacrifice, and shows how a loving God shares our grief. We learn from this book that the way to dancing is through the valley of mourning--that grief is a poignant reminder of the fullness of life Christ obtained for us through his resurrection. In the words of writer and critic John Timmerman, Mourning into Dancing 'could well be the most important book you ever read.'
