Mike Renzulli Posted July 26, 2010 Share Posted July 26, 2010 (edited) I had the opportunity to briefly read C.J. Jones's book Godless Grief. It stated much of what I had originally read in the first book I read by Theresa Rando titled How to Go On Living When Someone You Love Dies. Also, I was turned off by Ms. Jones's reeling against selfishness and greed in one of the chapters of her book. If you do suffer the loss of a loved one, I would recommend Dr. Rando's book rather than Ms. Jones's. Dr. Rando's is not only just as comprehensive but also more widely available and competitively priced. While Dr. Rando does believe in God, the references to her personal beliefs are a paragraph or two of the book and are hers alone. She also points out how kids can lose their faith after a parent or loved one dies but that's it. Otherwise, Dr. Rando makes no attempt to prosthelyze <sp> for religion and her information is very good. Also, you could even toss in reading the chapter on death that George Smith makes in his book Why Atheism? and maybe even Richard Dawkins's remarks from his book The God Delusion.
