Item description for When the Dying Speak : How to Listen to and Learn from Those Facing Death by Ronald Wooten-Green, Joseph M. Champlin & Ron Wooten-Green...

People who are dying often see and hear things that the living do not. Frequently, however, these encounters are either ignored or misunderstood by the people surrounding the dying. Ronald Wooten-Green seeks to decipher the metaphorical language of the dying and stresses the importance of listening to and learning from those at the end of their earthly journeys. In a collection of poignant and hope-filled stories, Wooten-Green draws on his experience as a caregiver for his dying wife and as a hospice chaplain to give us a glimpse of the spiritual reality known only by those nearing death. From conversations with unseen visitors to visions of long-dead ancestors, this book reveals the unique phenomena surrounding death. Relative scripture passages, biographical sketches, and thought-provoking questions provide spiritual and historic perspective while encouraging self reflection.

Reviews - What do customers think about When the Dying Speak : How to Listen to and Learn from Those Facing Death?

Excellent   Nov 25, 2007
A wonderfully written book by Mr. Ron Wooten-Green. I recommend this book highly to nurses, doctors, and anyone else who has a loved one facing death. After reading "When The Dying Speak," one will think of death in a whole different light. Aileen
Reassuring my Faith  Sep 26, 2002
Following my mother's death, my faith in the afterlife was sorely challenged until I read "When the Dying Speak". This book provided a reaffirmation of my beliefs. The myriad of messages shared with Mr. Wooten-Green by dying patients and by their families provided VALUABLE insights and understanding of what the dying may be experiencing, what they may be needing, and what the families may be needing. A most significant message shared by the author is that when we are with the dying, we are on holy ground! I will be forever grateful that this author took the time to "put to paper" such an inspirational review and commentary. GET THIS BOOK FOR YOURSELF AND FOR OTHERS!
The most uplifting book on death I've ever read!  Aug 16, 2002
My mother (Rosemarie Twomey - see review above) gave me a copy of this book. I have enjoyed it so much and it has given me such a different way to approach my fear of death of loved ones that I'm here at this to buy copies for friends of mine who have recently lost loved ones and also one who ministers to the dying and bereaved. I'm so glad to have the opportunity to read this while my parents, spouse and siblings are still alive and healthy. Thank you Ron!

A must-read for persons in the hospice ministry  Jun 2, 2002
This is an easy-to-read book that, I believe, would be extremely useful to anyone facing the imminent death of a loved one or friend, or (as will happen to most of us) will face that at some time in the future. For me, it takes away the feeling of helplessness I have felt in the past when dealing with such a situation. The author gives some practical and edifying guidance as to how to "be there" for the dying person. Beyond that, it is an uplifting and spiritual rendering of the experiences that the author has had in his ministry as a Hospice chaplain, including some painful, but beautiful, accounts from his personal life. Anyone in the hospice or caring industry would be well-served by a reading of this book.
Meaningful Messages from the Dying  Jun 1, 2002
In earlier times, author Ron Wooten-Green, a Catholic lay minister and Hospice chaplain, would have been labeled a heretic and burned at the stake for writing such a book. Generally, stories of near-death experiences, death-bed visions, and other spirit communication, as related by Wooten-Green from his Hospice work, are taboo subjects for both the Catholic and the Protestant because some of the messages are not always consistent with the narrow and distorted meanings given to Scripture.

In fact, this book was found in a Catholic book store, even though Wooten-Green states the "cloud of witness arrives on the scene whether the dying person is Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Native American, or none of the above." Either the Church watchdogs missed that or there is hope for the Church.

The author relates about 20 interesting, intriguing, and inspiring stories from his experiences -- near-death experiences, death-bed visions, apparitions, nearing-death awareness, and near-life experiences. They support Wooten-Green's contention that life is a spiritual process that begins with birth, flows eventually to death, and continues on to a new life.

Anyone involved in giving care to the dying should read this book. It should also offer comfort to those facing death as well as to those with friends or relatives who may soon pass.
