Item description for The Mystery of Death by Adrienne Von Speyr & Dr Graham Harrison...
Overview Von Speyr addresses the perennial and ultimate human question--the question of death. This book is not only a synthesis of the Christian view of death. It is also an antidote to the insipid sociological sentimentalism of so many books written about death and dying today. Death is not just the last stage of growth or something we must cope with or accept, nor something we must help people do without any fear or feeling of guilt. None of the merely human answers can satisfy because death is a mystery that only God and his Revelation can begin to explain.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Mystery of Death?
Extraordinary Mar 18, 2005
The most profound meditation on life and death I've ever read. I recommend it for theologians (especially those who don't understand von Speyr's influence on Balthasar) or anyone willing to follow life's most fundamental questions to their source.
