The Art of Dying and LivingJohn Irvine, via The Good Book Stall
This is the story of seven contemporary men and women and the list includes the famous like Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Pope John-Paul ll. The others, both religious and lay, are less familiar but are equally instructive of a good life and a good death. Each of them exemplifies one of the seven virtues - trust, love, gratitude, obedience, courage, patience, Christing, (seeing Christ in everything, acknowledging that Christ is the creator). All of them transform the experience of dying into a meaningful and enriching finale, so that death does not have the final word. A good death is not a senseless termination of life but is ideally a participation in the mystery of Christ’s death. The main thesis is that dying well is inseparable from living well. Death is bitter but is not the final word.
The book is full of original ideas and is both gripping and moving.
