This book glows with the tender touch of a man and woman walking deep into the night of Alzheimer's and yet growing closer to one another and to their God in the process. The insights into this "dark providence" are deeply moving and profound...I found myself looking at my wife with new eyes after reading it...with deeper appreciation and love. The book is both practical and powerfully spiritual...it will make you laugh...and weep. This is not only a book for those who are going through this deep valley themselves. No, it is for every person who wants to know how to love and how to experience God's light in the midst of deep suffering.

The author of this book has invited us deep into his inner life as he wrestles with the intensely painful experience of losing his wife to Alzheimer's. Those who accept the author's invitation are in store for a deeply moving and significantly instructive journey. In writing Last Light Dr Burchett has departed from the style of his previous books in which he explored and analyzed various life issues. In this book he leads us on a journey through the landscape of his heart. We watch as God teaches him how to be the husband he needs to be for his ailing wife. Because the lessons are rooted in the crucible of Alzheimer's our journey takes us from such menial tasks as clipping fingernails to the poignant moment of listening to his wife's last prayer. The lessons, inextricably linked to the practical tasks of day-to-day caring for the one striken with Alzheimer's, are profound in their scope. Anyone facing trials which have no foreseeable end will find hope and help by sharing in Dr Burchett's journey. Indeed, for the one who seeks it, the very secret of experiencing vital Christianity - living every moment in communion with the risen Christ - is revealed in this book.

Format: Paperback
Last Light is a touching story of a man who, filled with the love of God and with Christ's example, chose to love his wife and to serve her despite the horrible advance of Alzheimer's disease. Burchett describes the stark realities of the pain of this relationship as he watches the witty woman that he loves decline into confusion. He is often humorous in a good natured way. I know this man personally. He is a great encouragement and a wonderful, truthful example of love and the power of Christ to transform life and life's dark trials.

"Would you please read the Bible with me every day for the rest of your life?" It was a beautiful proposal! But Jane developed Alzheimer disease. He couldn't cook well, so his church members helped him. He took care of Jane with love until her last moment. As her disease advanced she was not able to read the Bible. Even though, Jane couldn't remember anyone, she knew her husband. I always remember in the Bible passage, "In sickness and in health," Pastor Burchett is a good example of that.
