Practical and spiritual guidance for anyone facing the challenges of dying and death — whether their own death or that of a family member or friend.

The four authors draw on their personal stories, as well as on years of medical and pastoral experience. Their writing is full of sensitivity, empathy and wise understanding.

Each chapter focuses on a different area or question, so you can find what you need with ease. The final chapter concludes with a clear message of hope.

'This is one of the most practical books I have come across. The compassion, experience and faith of its authors shine through. I commend it very warmly indeed for the guidance it offers and the hope it provides.' Michael Lloyd, Principal, Wycliffe Hall, Oxford.
