I just bought this book for my parents after my dad was diagnosed with cancer. Each day has refreshing truths dealing with circumstances and emotions revolving around a life-threatening illness. I appreciate Dobson's honesty. I just ordered two more copies, one for a sibling and one for me to keep at home. Great book for the one suffering from the disease and for those surrounding that person to understand what is going on emotionally.

This is an excellent book and I would recommend it for anyone dealing with a terminal illness. I recommend it even if you aren't dealing with a terminal illness. It helps me to understand some of the struggles of those who are going through difficult times. The author is very transparent.

An excellent devotional book that gets right to the heart of the matter when you are dealing with the news of terminal illness.
The author is honest in expressing his feelings, but always brings us back to God. Linda

I read the book before I sent it out to a brother with ALS. It's my prayer that God will help this brother to rely more on His life as the author. I appreciate the straightforwardness and deep thinking shared by the author. ALS is described as a "terminal, non-irreversible and terminal" disease in this book and it reminds me of the aging process that everybody is experiencing, even adorable babies. I am sure I will think more of this book as I grow older or one day I am facing a terminal disease myself.

what an amazing collection of prayers. I am using these readings, not as someone with a terminal illness, but instead caring for others facing death. I have already recommended the book to other Stephen ministers and friends' whose parents have terminal illnesses.

This wonderfully spiritual book, written by a much-beloved pastor in my home town who is dying due to ALS, has helped a number of my friends and their families as death approaches. It provides comfort and the promise of God's Grace when needed the most.

I bought this book for a friend who is dying of cancer. I thought it might bring him some inspiration and comfort. I thought he would accept what the author was saying because the author is dying from an incurable disease, too, so he has special credibility on the subject. A lot of insight and honesty in a small volume. The material is organized as daily devotionals--a reading for the morning, a reading for the evening--so it's not too much to deal with if you happen to have a serious health issue as well and are already coping with a lot. You don't have to be dying, though, to benefit from this book; it has nuggets of wisdom for everyone. I thought the book was so good on a sensitive subject that I bought extra copies and put them on a shelf, in case I have other friends in the future who might benefit from it. However, I hope those copies stay on the shelf and I never have an occasion to give them out.
