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.
