The nineties offer us David J. Wolpe, a rabbi whose eloquence, experience, intellect, and heart bring a new understanding of finding faith and creating meaning in difficult times. It was the loss that surrounded Wolpe - his father's father whom he never met, his mother's speech lost to a stroke, not being able to have more children, the relatives, the dreams, the love, the life - that led him to become a rabbi. Each generation produces a powerful new teacher with a healing message on loss - the mystery and difficulty that no one can avoid. The seventies produced Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. The eighties gave us Harold S. Kushner's When Bad Things Happen to Good People.

Comments to eBook Making Loss Matter: Creating Meaning in Difficult Times
Malahelm
Up front I must confess that buying this book was a mistake. I never heard of it or the author. I am a great fan of the writings and videos of Mitch Albom. While ordering another book I spotted this book and Mitch Album's name. The price was right so I bought it and learned upon arrival that he only wrote an introduction to the book. Upon reading the book I was delighted for the error.
The Rabbi deals with so many questions of life. I was impressed with his handeling of the fact that loss is part of life. As a child I think most of us feel that the good times will always be the same. Upon the transition to adulthood we find everything in time will change. I wish I could express my feelings about this book as eloquently as he writes. He is a Rabbi but he talks about his journey to his post, doubting his faith and his return to beliefs, how without loss we wouldn't appreciate many moments in life to the same degree. I have been experiencing many of lifes challenges (the loss of my 96 year old mother, Health and financial challenges) after reading the book I realized that perception of the problem is half the battle. He shares his feelings about his wifes cancer.
I feel the philosophy, at least for me, is something to contemplate. It was at least refreshing to know that even clergy wrestle with many of lifes mysteries. He does offer food for thought on how to address these questions. I am glad it is part of my library and I plan to order another copy to loan to friends.

I purchased my first copy of this several years ago, after a friend's mother died suddenly. Although not Jewish, he said the book helped him immensely with reconciling his loss. The book has since been passed to similar friends and acquaintances dealing with death and loss. I missed having my own copy and was pleased to see it was available again. I think that what Rabbi Wolpe emphasizes is that g-d is not in the event (death) but is in the response to the event. It's how we as individuals and community come together in the aftermath of loss to mourn and grieve, comfort and console, and, ultimately, to celebrate life. The loss we experience is real and painful and creates a void, but it is how we put it into perspective that allows us to move forward. I would strongly encourage this book to all, irrespective of your faith or religion.

Having had to support and counsel many folks over the years experiencing loss, this was a way to offer new perspectives and resources going forward.

Worth reading. Pretty insightful and thought provoking. It's a keeper. It's not a book to read in one sitting - read a couple chapters at a time... thinking it over... and read a couple more chapters. I would recommend it wholeheartedly

I really enjoyed reading this book. I do not agree with all of the authors theology but it certainly gave me a lot to think about. Making loss matter covers many losses we experience through life, everyone would be able to identify with something discussed in this book. I was lent this book and I found it so helpful I purchased a copy to give to a friend.This is one book I would reread.
Halloween
Extraordinary book to help me through unbearable loss. I highlighted sentences as I went along and I reread them. No other book could help me deal with it. This book is a Godsend.

Another stellar book from Rabbi David Wolpe. The many different kinds of "loss" people experience in their lives are explored and are shown to be actually foundations for life enrichment.
