Soul Support: Spiritual Encounters at Life's End

Full Product Description

A young dancer's last hope--a bone marrow transplant--has failed. A homeless man, in the final stages of AIDS, refuses to speak. A newly retired woman has just received a terminal diagnosis and is wailing in despair. What can we learn about death, dying, and the human spirit as we journey with a hospital chaplain into sickrooms like these? Soul Support tells true stories of people coming to terms--or not--with their final days. It offers intimate, behind-the-scenes accounts of the many ways patients, their families and friends, and hospital staff all deal with death and dying. It speaks to readers reflecting on their own mortality or the life-threatening illness of a loved one, and tells of the sometimes-astonishing events that can occur when people are in their last hours of life. The book tells not only their stories, but also the chaplain's. It relates how she listened and learned and stumbled and grew. Soul Support speaks to believers and nonbelievers alike, providing information, inspiration, and hope. ""Soul Support is both a thoughtful presentation and a brilliant modeling of the chaplain's craft at its finest. . . . [T]his is a Wisdom transmission in the classic sense of the word, meaning that the stories and parables convey a deeper unitive meaning, opening out onto universal truth."" --Cynthia Bourgeault, Episcopal priest, author, and retreat leader ""Soul Support
