Editorial Reviews

Review

Keith G. Meador
-- Vanderbilt University
"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."

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Douglas H. Laws on February 28, 2014
Format: Paperback
Dr. Allen Verhey, theologian and teacher, faithful Christian and loving husband, father and grand-dad, died Wednesday, February 26, 2014 in Durham, North Carolina. He was 68. ( see Durham Herald-Sun or Duke Divinity web sites ).

I am reading this excellent book and recommend it highly. It is not easy to read but very thought provoking and a book that all Christian clergy should study and discuss with other clergy and their own congregations. I plan to order more and give them away.

Invaluable discussion of the much-neglected topic of dying in modern times. Can help many who might be unduly fearful of their own death.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book gives those who follow Jesus much to think about when facing death themselves or journeying with someone whose age or health put them in a season where they need to make decisions about dying well.
