In the nineteen seventies, Granger Westberg was on the forefront of helping people with grief. This book has insight that is useful for anyone who is involved with grief ministry. He describes that which, for many of us is indescribable, the grief that comes from many facets of life, death, and loss. He moves his reader through his ten stages of grief. He is wise in his understanding that the stages, order, severity vary with each individual as they face grief. He states clearly in his introduction that his ten stages represent, "the road the majority of humans must travel in order to get back into the mainstream of life" (8).
