God commanded all Christians (and not just ministers, pastors and leaders) to comfort those who mourn. However, many Christians are not reaching out to grieving people, not because they lack the compassion or concern for them, but because they lack the understanding, knowledge, and skills as to what to say and do.
In Jesus' Model for Grief Support, Edmund Ng combines God's principles and practices with personal experience, and extensive professional grief counseling knowledge and skills to show how Christians can reach out and offer support to those who are grieving. Readers will learn to use a simple and practical formula to help grieving persons to:
a) Talk about their losses
b) Resolve barrier issues
c) Find meaning in their suffering
d) Recover and move forward with hope and purpose.
The bereaved need comfort and support in their season of grief. Christians must not continue to miss out on these God-designed windows of opportunity to extend His kingdom and impact lives through deaths and losses.
“Caring for the grieving is a neglected ministry in our churches. Yet it is a gold mine for pastoral care as well as for outreach and evangelism. I believe this book will open the eyes of many to come to a greater understanding of the potential of such a ministry. My prayer is that many churches will take this long-neglected ministry seriously so that the church of God can help those who grieve and mourn to be set free to live a normal and victorious life.”

“Grieving over the loss of a loved one is an intensely painful journey and I feel that without Dr. Edmund’s book, such a storm in life will be too terrible to bear. Learning from the book, I have also helped my 3 children to grieve properly. I was also able to reach out to other widows who are in need of comfort and encouragement.”
