The Art of Dying
Intended Target Audience
Middle-age and older adults who are thoughtful and contemplative. They most likely are dealing with a crisis in their own life or the life of someone they love, yet are looking for comfort, reassurance and most of all hope.
Subject of Book
In this well-researched and pastorally sensitive book, Rob Moll recovers the deeply Christian practice of dying well. For centuries Christians have prepared for the "good death" with particular rituals and spiritual disciplines that have directed the actions of both the living and the dying. Here Moll explores these traditions and provides insight into death and dying issues with in-person reporting and interviews with hospice workers, doctors, nurses, bioethicists, family members and spiritual caregivers
