To shine a spotlight on them and esteem their loss is a great source of comfort to someone [who is grieving]. —Nancy Guthrie



 

nancy guthrieUnlocking the Bible continues to release weekly episodes of Readers and Writers with Colin Smith, a podcast recorded live at The Gospel Coalition’s 2017 National Conference.

Our next guest is Nancy Guthrie, who shares about her writing and newest book from Crossway, What Grieving People Wish You Knew about What Really Helps (and What Really Hurts). 

Here’s a summary of the book’s content:

We want to say or do something that helps our grieving friend. But what?

When someone we know is grieving, we want to help. But sometimes we stay away or stay silent, afraid that we will do or say the wrong thing, that we will hurt instead of help.

In this straightforward and practical book, Nancy Guthrie provides us with the insight we need to confidently interact with grieving people. Drawing upon the input of hundreds of grieving people, as well as her own experience of grief, Nancy offers specifics on what to say and what not to say, and what to do and what to avoid. Tackling touchy topics like talking about heaven, navigating interactions on social media, and more, this book will equip readers to support those who are grieving with wisdom and love.
