A book about facing the death of loved ones, as well as our own inevitable death.
Significant events such as birth, marriage, and death are milestones in our lives in which we experience our greatest happiness and our deepest grief. And so it is profoundly important to understand how to approach and experience these occasions with grace, endurance, and joy.
In a culture that does its best to deny death, Timothy Keller–theologian and bestselling author–teaches us about facing death with the resources of faith from the Bible. With wisdom and compassion, Keller finds in the Bible an alternative to both despair or denial.
A short, powerful book, On Death gives us the tools to understand the meaning of death within God’s vision of life.
