Using his own circumstances and those of his time as a therapist and pastor, Mark Karris has written a book to help those who are grieving. 

This book was written in four parts:

  • Part 1 is about the grieving process.
  • Part 2 is about three different connections- God, others, and yourself.
  • Part 3 is about ways to help grieving- like prayer, journaling, and forgiving.
  • Part 4 is about learning to listen to others and a theology of suffering.

My thoughts-

This book has so many nuggets of advice for those who are dealing with heartbreak.  It was easy to read as it didn’t have a lot of technical terms and had lots of relatable stories from his life and those in the Bible.

While I liked all of the different parts and all of the information that was given, there were some parts I would like to see added.  In nonfiction books like this, I like having a summary at the end of each chapter which discusses the most important points.  I also enjoy having study questions so I can find out more about myself from the material.

Season of Heartbreak would be a great book for those who are suffering and need healing for themselves. 

I recommend it!
