  • All The Ways Our Dead Still Speak

    $26.99

    What if our dead remain with us? What if closure is not the goal? No matter what you believe about the afterlife, what if the hereafter intersects with the here and now?

    Caleb Wilde, author of the acclaimed memoir Confessions of a Funeral Director, was a skeptic. The baffling stories people told him–deathbed visions of long-dead parents, visits from the other side–must be hallucinations or wishful thinking, he thought. But the more stories he heard, and the more he learned about non-Western understandings of body and spirit, the less sure he was.

    All the Ways Our Dead Still Speak takes readers on a lyrical and tender quest to encounter the hereafter. As Wilde picks up bodies, organizes funerals, and meets with grieving families in a small town in Pennsylvania, those who remain share with him–and us–what they experience in the thin places between life and death. Entwining these stories with his own as a sixth-generation funeral director, and with the findings of neuroscience and the solace of faith, Wilde creates a searching, reverent inquiry into all the ways our dead remain with us. In the process, he takes on prevailing dogmas about death: from a narrow Christian view of heaven and hell, to secular assumptions that death is the end, to pop-psychology maxims that say we all need “closure” after our loved ones die.

    The dead don’t have to be buried twice, once in the ground and again in our hearts. In the pages of this unforgettable book, learn how love and memory and mystery fuse this world to the next.

  • Keep At It Riley

    $22.95

    “This is a story of how Catholic faith accompanied my family through the sickness and death of my elderly parents. What could mistakenly be seen as a downward spiral was actually upward. As my parents were called home to God those around them caught a glimpse of heaven. Ministering to them during this time was challenging, yet a blessing, not a burden… I discovered my source of strength was my Irish Catholic upbringing, the sacraments, and my God. Our family motto, ‘Keep at It, Riley!’ sums it up well. We don’t give up; we give it to God.”

    This is the second book of the Magenta series, edited by Charles Camosy. The Magenta project brings together authors who will treat important topics from the standpoint of Christian conviction without being trapped in a polarized mindset.

  • Art Of Dying Well

    $14.95

    Rather than turning away from death, great saints such as Robert Bellarmine, the author of this book, use it as a lens through which to view life from the right perspective – God’s perspective.

    Seen this way, death becomes for them – and can become for you – a source of spiritual liberation rather than a reason for fear, enabling you to love the world as it ought to be loved and to answer your final summons with joy.

    St. Robert Bellarmine makes it simple for you. He explains sixteen things you can do to put your life in order now, so you’ll start living better today and be prepared for death whenever it comes, be it tomorrow or years from now. Not only will these sixteen insightful measures free you from fear; they’ll invigorate your spiritual life and bring into all aspects of your life the consoling peace of Christ.

    Let St. Robert Bellarmine – the brilliant Doctor of the Church who influenced the writing of the Declaration of Independence and other American founding documents – introduce you to the art of dying well. You’ll discover:

    *Why learning these principles is more important than anything else you can do today
    *How to die to the world while living in it – without losing the truly good things in life
    *Fasting: how this spiritual discipline can determine your soul’s destiny
    *The secret spoiler of prayers and good works: has it crept into your heart?
    *Why now is the time to prepare for death – whether you’re young or in your twilight years
    *And much more to help you learn to live well now and to die holy when God calls you!

  • Divine Art Of Dying

    $21.00

    The Divine Art of Dying explores the time when individuals facing a life-limiting illness make critical decisions about how they will live until they die. Authors Karen Speerstra and Herbert Anderson teamed up to write this book shortly before Speerstra’s death. Their hope was that this book would be a gift to help people who are irreversibly ill (and their friends and family) navigate the perilous journey to the point at which one decides to discontinue curative treatment and turn toward death. The book includes reflections from Speerstra’s hospice journal and essays written jointly by Speerstra and Anderson on themes that include learning to wait, letting go, giving gifts, and telling stories.

    Karen’s experiential and moving reflections are woven together with Anderson’s pastoral insights gleaned from years of teaching, writing, and lecturing on death, dying, and bereavement, as well as practicing hospital chaplaincy and pastoral care. Together they have created a deeply profound and practical book that aims to empower people who are dying to live as fully as they can until life’s end, and to help those who care for them to share this journey with compassion and hope.

    Several reflections by Speerstra’s friends and family are included along with sidebars describing divine-human virtues. Suggestions for caregivers are provided at the end of each chapter.

  • Can You Hear Me

    $14.99

    Can good things really come from bad things? Why does God allow bad things to happen? Will Daddy still be able to hear me from Heaven?

    These are just some of the questions Renee starts thinking about after she finds out her daddy has cancer. She feels very sad and struggles to understand why this is happening. All she can think to do is pray and ask God to make her daddy better. But when she realises he isn’t, she begins to wonder what God’s plan is, and whether God can hear her prayers at all.

  • Shaped By Suffering

    $18.00

    Suffering comes to us all. But Christians today are often not prepared to suffer well and have a short-sighted view of pain and trials. In this book Ken Boa shows how God uses suffering to shape his children for eternity and to grow them in Christlike character. The nature of our affliction is not as important as our response to it, and God is at work through our hardships and wants to use them to prepare us for eternal life.

  • Glorious Puzzle : A Personal Experience Of The Sovereignty Of God

    $18.99

    Your loss and brokenness could turn into a doorway of discovering how much the sovereign God cares about you. That’s exactly what Mary experienced in grief when her youngest son died as a result of injuries from a car accident. The tragedy led her to review God’s actions in her life in prior experiences, which enabled her to trust in His demonstration of lovingkindness in the grief the family and community experienced.

    God is the divine Puzzle Maker, putting the pieces of our lives in place, one by one. He is a sovereign God who has the power to plan our lives for His glorious purpose. As we look for evidences of His care and tenderness in very difficult experiences of life as well in the good times, we are drawn in a close love relationship to this awesome God. Grief and loss can be an opportunity to draw us nearer to God.

    Glorious Puzzle is the account of Mary learning to trust and love God deeply through her experiences of infertility, miscarriage, adoption of a special needs child, career changes, the mental illness and incarceration of her oldest son and the death of her youngest son. Her account challenges us to open our eyes to see God’s hand at work in our hard times and then give Him the honor and praise. It is a story of putting Proverbs 3:5 & 6 into action in everyday life and in times of trial. As God is acknowledged, He frees us to experience joy, draw near to Him, and feel His awesome love for us, and we can respond in grateful service.

    “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.” (ESV)

  • Near The Exit

    $19.00

    After her brother died unexpectedly and her mother moved into a dementia-care facility, spiritual travel writer and Episcopal deacon Lori Erickson felt called to a new quest: to face death head on, with the eye of a tourist and the heart of a pastor. Blending memoir, spirituality, and travel, Near the Exit examines how cultures confront and have confronted death, from Egypt’s Valley of the Kings and Mayan temples, to a Colorado cremation pyre and Day of the Dead celebrations, to Maori settlements and tourist-destination graveyards. Erickson reflects on mortality–the ways we avoid it, the ways we cope with it, and the ways life is made more precious by accepting it–in places as far away as New Zealand and as close as the nursing home up the street. Throughout her personal journey and her travels, Erickson helps us to see that one of the most life-affirming things we can do is to invite death along for the ride.

  • In The Mysterys Shadow

    $14.95

    As our lifespans continue to grow longer, millions of people every year spend time caring for the elderly and dying-some as professionals, some as volunteers, and some through their loving but demanding care for parents, spouses, or other family members or friends.

    In her book In the Mystery’s Shadow, Susan Swetnam draws on her experience serving thousands of ill and dying clients, often in hospice programs, as a certified massage therapist-and also on her experience of caring for her own husband, who died young of cancer. She explains how this sometimes difficult work offers not just the fulfillment of giving comfort to people who need it, but also moments of breathtaking wonder, moments that hint at the untold complexity of being human and affirm our sacred connections with each other. She writes of the hard lessons caregivers learn about themselves, while at the same time knowing the strange and humbling sense of being used in the service of God’s love. Insightfully connecting end-of-life care with the liturgical year, Swetnam invites those who care for the sick and dying, whether professional or volunteer, to stay awake to the sacred implications of their labors.

  • Whence And Whither

    $22.00

    From one of our most gifted writers and thinkers about death and the meaning of living comes a collection of writings about “what comes next.” Thomas Lynch, funeral director, poet, and author of the National Book Award finalist The Undertaking: Life Studies from the Dismal Trade, has an uncanny knack for writing about death in ways that are never morbid, always thoughtful, often humorous, and quite moving. From his account of riding in the hearse at the funeral of poet laureate Seamus Heaney, to his recounting of the funeral for a young child in the 1800s, to his compelling essay about his own mortality, Lynch always finds ways to make sense of senseless things, as he ponders what will come next.

  • 55 Days : Memoirs Of Life In God’s Hands

    $15.99

    It has been said there are no coincidences in life. The Bible tells us God’s timing is always perfect, even when we can’t recognize it. The death of the author’s wife revealed this clearly to him. This is the true story of how a young soldier, attracted to a young woman because of the car she drove, quickly fell in love with her beautiful soul and how it led to an incredible forty-seven-year journey together filled with love, hardships, travel and a never ending spiritual growth. Tom Glenn’s wife died just fifty-five days after her first ER visit. As he wrote their story, Tom came to realize that he had spontaneously proposed to her, without benefit of a ring or prior planning, by taking a “giant leap” on July 20, 1969, just fifty-five days after their first date. As they watched the lunar landing and listened to Neil Armstrong’s words, Tom found himself saying, “Speaking of giant leaps would you marry me?” She accepted and their journey together began. Biblical numerologists believe five means hand and fifty-five means God’s hands. This is the story of two lives lived in God’s hands which led to ongoing spiritual growth.

  • As She Is Dying

    $32.99

    Ask any Appalachian the question, “When is Appalachia most beautiful?” Every Appalachian will answer, “During autumn, when the leaves of Appalachia’s trees are dying.” Appalachians believe the beauty of their landscape is almost heaven. With the honor of officiating nearly 1000 funerals, Pastor Kevin Cain offers life in the midst of death.

    In As She Is Dying, Kevin Cain writes, “I have given my life to bring hope to a people who have little reason to hope. Maybe Appalachians have allowed our hills’ majesty and grandeur to blind us from coal dust and addiction. Yet, I do see hope. I see hope in what is dying. I see hope in what is dead. I see hope in what remains. Yes, death has the keen ability to either clear up, cover up or stir up. Still, sometimes we must descend in order to turn into the clouds. As She Is Dying is a book about death that offers stories of life. In these pages, you will find a little bit of wisdom, some stories of hope, and the eulogizing words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart which I trust have been acceptable in the sight of my strength and my Redeemer. Somehow and somewhere in death, hope must be discovered. Maybe, through the literal metaphor of Appalachians’ deaths, you can see life. Some were reconciled long before their deaths. Some were reconciled just prior to their deaths. And, others were reconciled in the midst of death. There is hope for all…hope’s breath, even in death.”

    Writing from her personal experience, Julie Gossack invites you to travel her path of acceptance, and even joy, as she points you to the experience of Paul the Apostle who teaches us how to prepare for death as he did: “I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For me to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:20-21).

    Julie is a gifted writer and speaker. She has a passion for sharing the spiritual lessons she has learned along her journey as a Christian. As she peacefully faces her future, this may be her most important work as she shares her faith and confidence with others.

    When Ray and Vi Donovan were awoken in the early hours of the morning to the horrific news that their two sons had been attacked by a gang while returning home that night, they felt as though their world had ended.

    The couple discovered that one of their sons, Christopher, was fighting for his life. He later died from the injuries he sustained in the brutal attack. The Donovans would have been forgiven for holding onto the anger they felt at the perpetrators forever.

    This touching and often heart wrenching testimony shows how through their faith in God and the restorative justice system, they have been able to forgive the people who murdered their son.
    They have gone on to help many families, victims and also offenders.

  • Mommy Im With Jesus

    $7.99

    Experiencing death and loss of an unborn baby is something we are all going to have to face at one point in our lives. There is no escape from it. Having a miscarriage isn’t shy of experiencing a loss of a life, a loved one. Despite the baby never being held or having a personality, it is still a loss. First time expectant parents experience this in a profound manner by a broken heart as if the heart is being wrung in a ringer. The desire to comfort their partner is frozen because the pain is so deep and they are also crying, unable to move as if they are so terrified they can’t make any sense of anything. This can be a very difficult time for some people especially if they have had multiple miscarriages and don’t get the compassion quiet as much as when a baby is born then passes away. Nevertheless, it is still a loss, a death that the family experiences. In the book, Mommy I am with Jesus, this is a testimony and a journey that Claudia Duran has experienced. During the initial awareness of pregnancy and feeling the excitement and the unknown is such a blessing that a baby is being formed in the mother’s womb. Parents that have had the opportunity to see or hear their baby’s heartbeat in the mother’s womb brings love, joy and understanding of the life being formed. The parents feel a sense of a deep connection to the baby and to each other. The anticipation that comes with pregnancy, yet one day, and for no apparent reason, the baby’s heartbeat suddenly stops and there is nothing that can be done about it. It is hard to believe that a heart that was once alive and beating is no more. There is no sound where there was once a racing heartbeat. Then flooding questions like where does the baby go? How does anyone get through the pain of losing a life, especially one that is unforeseen and hoped for? As stated in the bible, “If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?” John 14:2 offers hope that we will be reunited once more with those we have lost. In the movie, Heaven is for Real by Randall Wallace, there is a scene where the little boy who was said to have gone to heaven then came back told his mom that he had another sister and asked why she hadn’t told him. The mom broke down crying and told her little boy they had lost a baby and didn’t know the gender which gives hope for our unborn babies. Scenes like this hit home and puts a lump in your throat.This is a silent suffering and it doesn’t discriminate regardless of age

  • Buried Dreams : From Devastating Loss To Unimaginable Hope

    $16.99

    At 20 weeks pregnant, Lindsey Dennis and her husband were told the child she was carrying would not live due to a fatal diagnosis. Later, in another stunning blow, they were told the same news with her second pregnancy. They chose to celebrate both lives alongside a community, both local and online, of hundreds of thousands as she carried each child to term only to bury them 14 months apart from each other. Through the crushing of their hopes and dreams, they came to know the kind of resurrection hope that can rise from the grave. This experience of infant loss revealed to Dennis how sorrow and suffering are instruments in the hands of God to forge in us a greater joy and hope than one can ever know. This kind of joy can only be discovered when we walk through the deep pain of burying our most precious dreams. Buried Dreams offers an uplifting perspective, sharing how devastating loss of personal dreams can give way to unimaginable hope and how death can give way to life. Framing her own story of staggering loss and soaring hope with biblical perspective, Dennis highlights that we can never plan for the unexpected turns of this life that sometimes lead to great personal suffering, but we can reach for the One who is there with us in the loss.

    Tim’s wife, Anne, died of breast cancer at the age of forty-nine, having battled against the disease for more than six years.

People’s experience of suffering causes them to examine the kind of God they believe in, the nature of the universe God made, and God’s activity in the world. This book explores all three aspects and responds constructively to the complex issues that the above questions pose–and provides powerful reasons for confidence in the firm Christian hope.

In this NSBT volume Paul Williamson surveys the perspectives of our contemporary culture and the biblical world, and then highlights the traditional understanding of the biblical teaching and the issues over which evangelicals have become increasingly polarized.

    Subsequent chapters explore the controversial areas: what happens immediately after we die; bodily resurrection; a final, universal judgment; the ultimate fate of those who do not receive God’s approval on the last day; and the biblical concept of an eschatological “heaven.”

    Taking care to understand the ancient Near Eastern and Greco-Roman backgrounds, Williamson works through the most important Old and New Testament passages. He demonstrates that there is considerable exegetical support for the traditional evangelical understanding of death and the afterlife, and raises questions about the basis for the growing popularity of alternative understandings.

    Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.

    How do you continue to find God as dementia pulls your loved one into the darkness?

    Nothing is simple for a person suffering from dementia, and for those they love. When ordinary tasks of communication, such as using a phone, become complex, then difficult, and then impossible, isolation becomes inevitable. Helping becomes excruciating.

    In these pages philosopher Douglas Groothuis offers a window into his experience of caring for his wife as a rare form of dementia ravages her once-brilliant mind and eliminates her once-stellar verbal acuity. Mixing personal narrative with spiritual insight, he captures moments of lament as well as philosophical and theological reflection. Brief interludes provide poignant pictures of life inside the Groothuis household, and we meet a parade of caregivers, including a very skilled companion dog.

    Losses for both Doug and Becky come daily, and his questions for God multiply as he navigates the descending darkness. Here is a frank exploration of how one continues to find God in the twilight.

  • Cancer : A Pilgrim Companion

    $18.99

    A cancer diagnosis is a seismic event. It divides life into before and after, and propels the diagnosed into places of suffering, pain and isolation; life is turned upside down in the present while the future horizon clouds with uncertainty and fear. Despite someone getting diagnosed with cancer in the UK every two minutes, cancer is a disease that is often described as lonely as the sufferer sets out on a tough journey through waiting, treatment and recovery. In this wise and compassionate book, cancer survivor Gillian Straine proposes that this journey through illness, pain and anxiety be reconceptualised as a pilgrimage of discovery. The Christian faith is that we are never abandoned by God, and this promise holds wherever we might find ourselves, whether that is in the doctor’s waiting room, in a chair receiving chemotherapy or lying on the surgeons table. Following the journey of Jesus through the darkness of Gethsemane, to the cross and into the silent waiting of Holy Saturday, this book invites the reader to seek God in their experience of cancer and, by pointing to the glimmers of resurrection hope in remission and beyond, to find healing in their own story of illness.

As he faced the possibility of death, he found himself awakened to new realities. In the critical days and months that followed, Ramsey came to see the world through the eyes of affliction. He grappled with fear, anger, depression, and loss, and yet he experienced grace through the suffering that filled him with a hope and hunger for the life to come. This profoundly eloquent memoir gives voice to the deepest questions of the human condition. In the midst of pain, we can see glimpses of eternity.

  • Hell Know : Does It Last Forever

    $10.99

    Having practiced medicine for more than 55 years, Dr. Johnstone has witnessed more than one of his patients take their last breath. But immediately, in his mind, questions always popped up. Is the person’s soul in the presence of its maker? Or is the soul now suffering in the flames of hell? Or did it simply die with the body and with it will soon be encrypted, buried, or cremated? What is the soul anyway? Is it conscious? Can it feel all of the stimuli coming to it from light, sound, heat, taste, smell, and touch? If so then a soul in heaven would be able to appreciate all of the blessings of that place, but if in hell; it would be suffering in the torment of eternal flames that never consume or destroy. However, if the soul dies with the body, then it would experience nothing. The above questions are not so meaningful if the person who has just died in your presence is not a loved one. However, a loved one’s death makes these questions come alive, sometimes with strong emotions not the least of which is sorrow. Dr. Johnstone experienced these feelings one summer afternoon, when he was called by his mother, who was at the bedside of his dying sister, to come to the hospital and pronounced her dead. Recently retired, Dr. Johnstone decided to research Scripture for himself to find answers in it, as to what happens to a person after death. In an effort to prevent bias from forming in his mind, he decided not to consult with any commentaries, but confine his studies mainly, but not exclusively, to The New International and King James versions of the Bible along with an English translation of the Septuagint. He also decided to obtain help from the Interlinear Bible, written in Hebrew, Greek, and English, in conjunction with The New Strong’s Expanded Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. From these sources, he performed a metaphoric autopsy to ferret out the answers to the soul’s postmortem existence. The pathology report, portrayed in Hell Know, came as a complete surprise.

  • Deathbed Wisdom Of The Hasidic Masters

    $19.99

    Death is a time of life that holds meaning for the dying, their family and friends, their community-and us.

    “Most of Torah’s teaching is about how to live. But there is a special section within its wisdom that also speaks to us about how to die. Since we are all mortals, our lives fashioned somehow around the awareness that death is inevitably to come, this is one of the important lessons…. There is something profound to be learned about the way of dying, and it is best learned from the wisdom and stories of those who have gone before us.”

    -from the Foreword

    Students of the Hasidic masters wrote down the stories of the last months, days, hours and moments of the lives of their rebbes. A compilation of their experiences, called The Book of Departure (Sefer haHistalkut), first published in Hebrew in 1930, brings together the rich end-of-life stories of forty-two holy men who died between 1760 and 1904, as well as their philosophical forebearer, Isaac Luria. Featuring new pastoral commentary in a unique facing-page format, this English presentation of heart-touching deathbed tales sheds light on Jewish traditions about death, the afterlife and how to care for people in their final days.

  • Do This Remembering Me

    $16.95

    What do I do to help? Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, almost everyone knows someone with some form of dementia, yet few know how to answer that question, and very little material exists on providing spiritual care to adults with dementia-related diseases. Even seminaries rarely provide training or clinical pastoral education in this field. This book is an answer. It provides a hands-on manual that will give clergy, spiritual care providers, and family members an understanding of the ongoing spiritual needs of individuals with dementia, as well as practical tools such as how to create a religious service in a memory care unit and how one might plan a nursing home visit. Accessibly written, with real life applications and sample services for a variety of settings. More than just useful, the book inspires with shared stories that are tender, sad, funny-and sometimes all three at once, encouraging readers to develop spiritual care ministries for people with memory loss in congregations, homes, nursing facilities, or other communities-a ministry that will only gain in importance in the coming decade, as Baby Boomers age and the number of people with Alzheimer’s and dementia skyrockets.

  • Inside The Shadow

    $13.99

    Can a mother continue to live when her child dies? I thought not. I believed this sorrow would bring my death. The years of cancer treatment had been filled with a mixture of uncertainty and hope, an unshakable hope in God’s healing. Yet now, the heart beat that had been formed within me had stopped and the gaping wound it had left would surely cause my own heartbeat to cease. Somehow, my lungs continued to take in air and my heart continued to beat. When a child dies, a parent undergoes a rapid free fall into the valley of the shadow of death. Whether through tragic accident, suicide, or prolonged illness, such as Kristen’s, the descent into the valley is a headlong dive into the solitary, expansive valley of grief. To me, the valley appeared to be bleak and sunless; I realized I was inside the shadow that death had created. This was a place that I could not possibly traverse on my own. I did not wish to be inside the shadow yet I could see no way out.

  • Long Letting Go

    $16.50

    Wise, nurturing, faith-based reflections for caregivers of dying loved ones

    At some point in our lives most of us will become caregivers. It is a vocation that can last for a few weeks of recovery time or for a long period of chronic illness or disability, and it will involve us intimately in others’ preparation for death.

    This collection of poignant reflections by Marilyn Chandler McEntyre is for family members and friends who are doing the life-changing work of accompanying someone on the final stretch of his or her journey. In quiet counterpoint to our hurried lives, A Long Letting Go invites caregivers to slow down for reflection and prayer as they prepare to say good-bye to a beloved friend or family member.

    Based on McEntyre’s professional and personal experience with the dying, these gentle meditations offer comfort, direction, hope, respite, and consolation to caregivers during a difficult season of their own lives.

  • Inhale Comfort Exhale Hope

    $12.95

    Death rarely comes with simple answers, for its arrival is always a bold reminder that we live in an imperfect world. Yet there is hope found in the Savior, and in his promise we can be certain that the limitations of this world cannot shackle the power of God.

    In the ten funeral homilies of Inhale Comfort, Exhale Hope! Mark Powell exposes the secrets of a broken world, reminding us that in the midst of the mess and the chaos, God’s presence delivers a redeeming hope. Powell doesn’t believe that the funeral homily should ever be an attempt to lecture or evangelize; rather, he asserts it’s a time to remind the brokenhearted to rely on solid scriptural truths found in the words of Jesus:

    We will not be left orphaned. Death has no victory. We will be with the Lord forever.

    The homilies in this volume will aid the pastor in preparation of funerals for:
    * an unexpected death
    * an elderly Christian
    * the death of someone unknown to the pastor
    * a suicide
    * a child
    and more.

    2. Abortion
    3. Death Penalty
    4. War
    5. Suicide
    6. End Of Life I: Physician Assisted Suicide
    7. End Of Life II: Futility And Euthanasia
    8. The Value Of Life

    Additional Info
    For the living, death has a moral dimension. When we confront death and dying in our own lives and in the lives of others, we ask questions about the good, right, and fitting as they relate to our experiences of human mortality. When others die, the living are left with moral questions-questions that often generate personal inquiry as to whether a particular death was “good” or whether it was tragic, terrifying, or peaceful.

    In The Ethics of Death, the authors, one a philosopher and one a religious studies scholar, undertake an examination of the deaths that we experience as members of a larger moral community. Their respectful and engaging dialogue highlights the complex and challenging issues that surround many deaths in our modern world and helps readers frame thoughtful responses.

    Unafraid of difficult topics, Steffen and Cooley fully engage suicide, physician assisted suicide, euthanasia, capital punishment, abortion, and war as areas of life where death poses moral challenges.

  • Living While Dying

    On the day Donna Tarrant was diagnosed with breast cancer, December 17, 2002, she was standing at the kitchen counter slicing ham for the twenty-five or so guests that were due to arrive for a luncheon any minute. The phone call left her speechless. The doctor told her to buy green bananas; she would be alive to eat them! Any other time, she would have laughed out loud. Now, she was going to die.
    After half a night of research, she knew exactly what she was going to do. After the doctor’s appointment, she was determined. She would have a mastectomy and tram flap reconstruction, all on the same day. She did not intend to have chemotherapy or radiation. This is when God stepped in and made her realize that she was in control of nothing, except her dependence and faith in Him. She learned very quickly that He is in control and He does have a plan.
    She could make bold statements about what she was not going to do, but the truth of the matter was that she had to hand it all over to Jesus, her Lord and Savior. Finally, she received the peace that was missing. She could not attain that peace without giving it all to Jesus.
    After surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, she began anew to live her life-one of extreme appreciation for the gift that she had been given. Life was so much more precious now and she lived it fully. Then, the unthinkable happened.
