What Readers Say

“Dr. Ron Petrie writes with personal insights this much needed book, Into the Cave: When Men Grieve. Dr. Petrie uses his writing talents combined with his own real life experiences of loss to address the topic of grief in a way men can understand.
This book is a must read for any man who has suffered the tragedy of loss from one who has been there, and recognized the void of useful grief material for men. Dr. Petrie’s book is a practical, easy reading masterpiece that offers men a useful tool to help the experience the healing of a broken heart that often seems so evasive and impossible to attain.”

- Pastor Bill Griggs, Senior Pastor
Clackamas Valley Baptist Church

“I found Into the Cave: When Men Grieve to be right on the mark as to how I’ve seen men grieve during my twenty years as a funeral director. I’m amazed that Ron could put so much valuable information into so few pages. I wasn’t ready to put it down; I wanted Ron to share more of his thought.”
- Randy Tjaden, Funeral Director
President, Cascade Funeral directors, Inc.

Into the Cave: When Men Grieve is the most insightful book I have read on the subject of grief for men. I was moved by Ron’s stirring story and found helpful and specific steps to spiritual and emotional recover.”
- Reverend Bill Wilson, Senior Pastor

“Ron is absolutely right about how differently men and women deal with grief. My husband and I had totally different experiences about the loss of our twin sons. I hope that both men and women read this book. Into the Cave: When Men Grieve will help men accept their grief as part of living and give them positive ways of dealing with grief.
It will give women an understanding about how men grieve differently. Ron’s revelations about the grieving process are a significant contribution to mankind.”

- Mary Kollman Bell

To be able to understand from a man’s point of view the tremendous loss the death of a spouse presents. As a widow, I’ve known my pain but I have often wondered if men felt differently. Thank you for your open reflections and honesty.”
