Item description for Seven for Heaven: How Seven Christians Faced Death by L. James Harvey & Jackie Harvey...

Overview
A fascinating "up close and personal" look at the final days of seven terminally ill Christians, Seven For Heaven is a poignant yet uplifting volume that captures their feelings and experiences as they prepare for a new life in heaven. You'll meet memorable characters like "the dancing printer" and "the officer's gentleman," as they share with you touching and humorous anecdotes about their families, faith, and vocations. Seven For Heaven intimately chronicles the unique story of these faithful believers, including the difficult end-of-life decisions each had to make. The Harveys champion hospices as a caring, humane option for those facing death; and the case studies here are a vivid demonstration of the many helpful services hospices provide. An informative final chapter summarizes lessons we can learn from these experiences, including the importance of spending final days in familiar surroundings with family and friends, patients' rights concerning interaction with doctors, communicating with the dying, reducing needless pain and suffering, and the crucial role faith plays as God works in every situation. While the subject of this book is imminent death, its hopeful message of living to the fullest and looking forward to God's grace in eternal life leaps out from every page. Dying is a doorway through which we all must pass -- and Seven For Heaven is an inspiring, entertaining, and educational reading experience that will help you face it with faith and confidence.

Seven for Heaven by Dr. L. James Harvey and Jackie Harvey  Oct 21, 2006
A book very well and very thoughtly written.. They share with us 7 Special people we don't know, how they lived and how they died..decisions
each had to make with their Family and mostly of their Faith !
A book for each person too read, to help yourself and a family member or close friend understand that difficult time of their life..and what to do to help them...
Even though its about death and how each of them met it with grace and total belief in eternity ..it helped me to understand where they were in thought and what they had to look forward to... A great comfort for those of us left behind...

Sincerely, Pat Brissette
 
Required Reading For All people  Mar 5, 2004
This book was written by Jim and Jackie Harvey. a married Christian couple wishing to explore the lives of seven people who are in the process of dying. They explain in detail the lives of the seven people, Their involvement with a hospice program which allowed them to die free of pain. Some of the involved had pre-death experiences (PDE). These experiences add additional insight into the process of dying.

I would recommend this book for all christians, who are nearing the age which life could be terminated or have family members of this age, The book is short, 194 pages of interesting data, which you will want to complete in one reading
