Reflections for the time of grieving

The need to express grief, to sing our sorrow, is as old as humanity. The book of Psalms, side by side with expressions of deepest praise, contains cries of unfathomable despair. Both are not only acceptable to God, but essential for our mental and spiritual health.

In The Last Journey, John Bell explores the myriad emotions that accompany loss, offering us a way to grieve, to search through the struggle before us – and perhaps enabling us to find the courage to face the world with a renewed sense of hope.

Published by SPCK, this new UK version comes in a combined book plus CD format. The hauntingly elegiac recording of 17 songs performed by The Cathedral Singers Of Chicago (with John L. Bell conducting) offers comfort in bereavement and is accompanied by a beautifully designed paperback book.
