Item description for Safe Passage: Thinking Clearly About Life & Death by Richard E. Simmons III...
At some point in life's journey, each of us is bound to realize, in our own way and in our own time, that no matter how hard we try, we are unlikely to find any significant measure of happiness while we live in fear of our mortality. On the contrary, Christian apologist Richard E. Simmons, III, suggests that as mature, responsible adults we must recognize that until we choose to carefully examine and accept the philosophical implications of death, we actually forego the opportunity of experiencing the rich promises of life. The central focus of this book of quiet and caring reflections, ideal for those who may be struggling with very real issues of death and dying, of fear and loss, conveys the conviction that the true challenge to leading a full life is to reach that place in our intellectual and emotional development where our perspective on dying is genuinely transformed. Only then, the author concludes, will we find ourselves in a position to discover and share with others the happy prospect of a hoped-for peace ... a peace which passes all understanding.

Great Book! Jan 8, 2007
This book rightfully calls into question the way we develop athletes in America. It exposes the lack of true technical knowledge on the part of coaches and sports organizations. The only requirement most coaching jobs have is to be a former athlete. Dr Yessis backs his claims by showing the errors of many things believed to be facts. His background in bio mechanics allows him to be able decipher many accepted "truths" to be bunk. This is an excellent read for anyone who is tired of hearing the same cliche laden bologna from coaches and executives.
