I did it again! I received a book for review, glanced at the first few pages, and started reading it ahead of schedule! The book: “Sunday Grief, M.D. ” written by Renee’ Sunday M.D. is an 82 page biographical discussion about grieving with faith.
Each chapter is a meditation of different aspects of the authors’ experiences during the process of bereavement. Though a unique experience in terms of her: personality, faith, family dynamics and knowledge of medicine; the information she shares is beneficial in that it addresses the physical and emotional processes we encounter after the death of a loved one.
I read “Sunday Grief, M.D. ” as a person who experienced the death of a son and a mother within 30 days of each other. Unlike Dr. Renee’ Sunday I had a few months to get use to the idea of their no longer being here on this earth with me. Like Dr. Sunday, it was my faith that has allowed me to cope with the loss.
One thing is very clear as I read this book it is evident, from page one, that Dr. Sunday is a woman of faith with a personal and trusting relationship with Father God. Her faith began long before her brother died and it was her faith that has strengthened her in her weakest moment.
I recommend this book. Though this is an excellent book for anyone who has experienced grief timing is everything, please do not go out and purchase this book for someone who has recently experienced a loss. I would suggest you READ THIS BEFORE you experience the loss of a loved one. PURCHASE THIS BOOK for a friend but read it yourself first, pray for the Holy Spirit’s guidance as to when to share Dr. Sunday’s testimony. This book was not scheduled to be read until July- oops!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review of which I have done.
