"Allen Verhey offers theological sophistication in concert with practical wisdom regarding dying and the care of those who suffer. He does this with sensitivity and a generous spirit, looking through the carefully discerned lens of Scripture -- a gift to us all." Abigail Rian Evans
-- Princeton Theological Seminary
"Verhey's meticulous, poetic, and scholarly writing is strongly reflected in this book. . . . His call for the church to move from silence to comfort for the dying is a much-needed reminder of the Christian virtues we all must cultivate when confronting the last enemy -- death. This way can liberate us from the total medicalization of death so that we relearn ars bene moriendi and embrace our Christian faith and faithfulness, robbing death of its final word."
