International Grief Ministry Endorses Book by Noted Counselor Robert Kellemen
July 13, 2010
WAKE FOREST, NC, (christiansunite.com) -- Christian counselor Dr. Robert W. Kellemen and BMH Publishers have released the GriefShare edition of "God's Healing for Life's Losses." GriefShare, a network of thousands of grief support group ministries worldwide, is excited about the hope-filled, relevant help this book can bring to people experiencing loss and grief.
In 2006 GriefShare selected Kellemen to be a featured expert in its new GriefShare video series. GriefShare grief support groups bring respected Christian counselors, authors and teachers into local churches to help grieving people via weekly videos. Participants receive comforting, foundational teaching from Robert Kellemen, Dr. Erwin Lutzer, Dr. Paul Tripp, Dr. David Powlison, Dr. Edward Welch, Anne Graham Lotz, H. Norman Wright, Dr. Larry Crabb and over 35 others.
With the release of Kellemen's new book, Steve Grissom, founder and president of Church Initiative, GriefShare's parent ministry, is optimistic that even more people will benefit from Kellemen's insights. People who've heard Kellemen's teaching in the past will enjoy even more in-depth, encouraging counsel through "God's Healing for Life's Losses." Readers will find comfort and hope as they discover God's active role in their healing. They'll learn how to experience deep healing and lasting peace in a world of suffering and pain.
The big idea behind Kellemen's book is that it is possible to grieve with hope without denying the reality of suffering. As such, "God's Healing for Life's Losses" gives readers permission to grieve and offers a pathway toward healing.
Grissom explains GriefShare's decision to endorse Kellemen's book: "People in grief can be voracious readers, looking for anything to ease the pain. And unfortunately, many popular self-help books are filled with advice that is inconsistent with the Bible, which will ultimately hurt them more. 'God's Healing for Life's Losses' is a biblically consistent, solid resource that can be read and recommended with assurance."
