Healing Takes Time

David P. Gallagher Colleyville, MN 2005-10-04

Emotional sorrow. Physical pain. Spiritual heartache. Everyone experiences these sometime in his or her life. But how should a person work through the loss—the loss of a job, or health, or a marriage, or the death of a loved one? Gallagher, senior pastor of Palm West Community Church, Sun City West, Arizona, helps guide readers through the grieving process by means of sixty brief meditations. Each meditation includes an illustration from Gallagher’s life, relevant Scripture passages for reflection, questions for personal response, action steps to take, and a brief prayer to voice.

This warmhearted, uplifting book offers God’s comfort and hope to anyone experiencing grief. Pastors and others will find this a useful tool to put in the hands of sufferers, all of whom need help in realizing that healing does take time.
