Bereavement: Bible readings for special times
Author: Jean Watson
This book of 24 undated reflections draws comfort and inspiration from the Bible and from experience for those who are going through a time of bereavement, as well as providing insight for those wanting to support others who are bereaved. Jean Watson suggests how it might feel to get through the dark days and to move, however slowly, from `getting by’ with help, to `getting a life’ in which living with loss goes alongside the gains in terms of new insights on faith and life and a greater ability to empathise with others.

When Words Fail: God and the World of BeautyCreativity, Seasons of Life, Spiritual Growth, The Inner Journey
Is there a sharp divide between the 'sacred' and the 'secular'? this book explores how it is possible for human beings to know God, and not just in the more conventional and obvious ways of prayer and sacrament, scripture and theology. 'When words fail' - it is then that signs and symbols, images and sounds, pictures and dreams, have to take over.
