Inspiring book for Christians who experience significant loss.

This is a very thoughtful and inspiring book written to people in general dealing with grief, with a Christian emphasis.

I was pleased to hear the author, at least throughout the beginning and middle of the book, acknowledge randomness and chance in the world especially in his significant experience of loss. However, I believe it was in chapter 12 that he claimed God's sovereignty of "total control" of all events of life. This appeal to sovereignty was not an isolated event and in following chapters he made the same claims. I hardly think appealing to meticulous sovereignty is helpful to non-Christians and even for many Christians this is controversial, though we have come to understand that this provides them with a level of comfort in their grief. I'd much rather have had him offer an explanation of how grief can be endured in light of God NOT in "total control."
