Dr. Chaim Licht has written a very traditional Jewish approach to dealing with the death of a child--he has looked at all the biblical and post-biblical texts from Judaism, to examine the stories and approaches that these texts take on the topic. His goal is to look at how historic stories from the Aggadah can help modern parents cope with their grief and can help those around them discover strategies for helping them.

This book is NOT a pop psychology book--it is very academic and rooted in the historic Jewish tradition of finding texts to support one's views. While it is an interesting take on the topic, I doubt that it would be very accessible to the average person. However, for anyone who has an interest in or a background with traditional Jewish texts, the author's effort pays off.
