Despite the title, this is not just a book for those in pastoral ministry. All of us have to face tough questions about death, and this offering from hospice chaplain Sue Walker will help.

“Christians don’t need to avoid death-talk and can confidently face death head on”, writes Walker. “The central and unique tenets of Christianity teach that Jesus looked death squarely in the face, experienced it, went through it and came out the other side with a message of hope, and delivered the power by which believers can apprehend this hope and courage.” 

This is a book of sensitive, hopeful discussion and challenges about a topic we don’t always like to engage with, but which can make all the difference to people at the end of their lives. Best of all, you’re left with an all-encompassing sense of hope.
