In this “volume of rare sensitivity, penetrating understanding, and profound insights” (Rabbi Earl A. Grollman, author of Living When a Loved One Has Died), Dr. Kenneth Doka explores a new, compassionate way to grieve, explaining that grief is not an illness to get over but an individual and ongoing journey. There is no “one-size-fits-all” way to cope with loss. The vital bonds that we form with those we love in life continue long after death—in very different ways. Grief Is a Journey is the first book to overturn prevailing, often judgmental, ideas about grief and replace them with a hopeful, inclusive, personalized, and research-backed approach. New science and studies behind Dr. Doka’s teaching upend the dominant but incorrect view that grief proceeds by stages. Dr. Doka helps us realize that our experiences following a death are far more individual and much less predictable than the conventional “five stages” model would have us believe. Common patterns of experiencing and expressing grief still prevail, yet many other life changes accompany a primary loss. For example, the deaths of parents, even for adults, modify family patterns, change relationships, and alter old family rituals. Unique to this book, Dr. Doka also explains how to cope with disenfranchised grief—the types of loss that are not so readily recognized or supported by society. These include the death of ex-spouses, as well as non-fatal losses such as divorce, the end of a friendship, job loss, or infertility. In addition, Dr. Doka considers losses that might be stigmatized, including death by suicide or from disease or self-destructive behaviors such as smoking or alcoholism. And finally, Dr. Doka reminds us that, however painful, grief provides opportunities for growth.

In a culture that struggles with dealing with grief, Farland has opened a door that allows others to see and feel what part of that path looks like. I can’t help but believe that his readers will benefit by his sharing. Ted Lunde Options Unlimited “This book will give encouragement and guidance to all those experiencing grief, but especially to men and fathers. Dr. Bottoms’ willingness to make himself vulnerable and share his struggles serves as a tremendous tool for the grieving reader as they may be learning to identify and express the depths of their feelings. He gives an excellent description of the evasive nature of depression and the various fronts one may use to hide it. Fortunately, he does not stop there, but gives ‘permission’ for the grieving person to seek the counsel of their families or that of professionals. The text does not gloss over or euphemize the extreme pain of losing a child, but does offer hope by defining healing as a process that requires faith in God and patience while He works. This book will give understanding to those grieving from someone involved in the process himself” Kelley L. Rumbyrt, MD, Psychiatrist “On Angels’ Wings will give those grieving solace through shared experience and the knowledge that others have walked along the same dark shadows, experience the same emotions and have come out the other side wounded yet still standing. On Angels’ Wings is a frank, stark and very personal journey of one man struggling to deal with the terrible loss of his son. It is a rare glimpse of a man struggling with the ‘stoic, provider model’ he must break free from to be completely human and to experience the grief most hold inside in a quiet rage. Through one’s ability to deal with his humanness and weakness, others, particularly men, will see a window to healing. We are not alone, On Angels’ Wings will provide comfort to those grieving a loss by allowing for a glimpse into the head and heart of another dealing with the worst of all parent’s nightmares. To simply sec that others deal with the same feelings of quilt, anger, rage, and sorrow will help in the healing after the loss.” Justin Matott Author of My Garden Visits, A Harvest of Reflections and children’s books.
