We live longer now than previous generations did, and many of us die more slowly.
Those who are dying have a lot of things to deal with.
Fear. Discouragement. Boredom. Pain. Regrets. And much more. This wonderful book by Marilyn Chandler McEntyre offers fifty-two short, poignant meditations on the very real issues faced by people who are dying.
McEntyre addresses such things as anger, losing control, curiosity, doubt, loss of privacy, family conflict, and spiritual torpor.
Her insightful reflections speak to the heart of the physical, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of dying. Brief concluding prayers further lift up the reader as he or she seeks to faithfully navigate the great transition through death to a new life.
