Resources on Faith, Sickness, Grief, and Doubt

In 2017, Patrick Riecke started working on his second book, about talking with sick, dying, and grieving people.[1] It was clear to him that this wasn’t going to be one book about faith and doubt, sickness and grief. His experience as a pastor and chaplain and leader and grieving father told him that this needed to be the first in a series of resources.

With the book you are holding, there are now five books in the series. Each book is practical and honest, with explanations and resources based in personal and professional experience. To find out the latest additions to this series, visit EmeraldHopePublishing.com
