About-

"Of course, death will happen to all of us someday, but until then, it's not something to think about or grapple with." But we do think about it. Arthur C. McGill maintains that our preoccupation with health, good looks, and material success is in fact a retreat from death--which we secretly fear is the final lord of our lives. Charting the Christian pilgrimage toward a life freed from the dominating power of death, McGill uses three scriptural images of Jesus to show us the possibility of walking continually into death, being ourselves, loving our neighbors, and worshiping God.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This book really penetrates life's most puzzling question in a very creative way. At some point, every reflective person needs to hear what McGill says."
