Moving past the account of Lewis’ wife’s death, I’m telling myself A Grief Observed is a book I do really want to re-read. I have marked it down for later – maybe after this and another which I have just picked up a little more than a week ago.
Maybe LifeGate church is my Joy Gresham/Davidman. Yeah, probably laughable but I am often prone to make comparisons or use analogies to help me understand or picture events and experiences. I certainly felt, sometimes, as though there’s a “battering ram crashing into the gates of my castle of faith” as a result of my experience in the last 12 months.
As in most analogies, that was probably severely short. I think I will see if I can elevate A Grief Observed up my reading list. The only downside is it is a hard copy – a yellowing one probably also around 20 years old – and I have fallen heel over head in love with my kindle in recent years so picking up an old copy of a very small font typeface version (if my memory serves me right) will be a very big challenge. Maybe a kindle version is worth the investment.
