As a hospice chaplain, Kerry Egan didn’t offer sermons or prayers, unless they were requested; in fact, she found, the dying rarely want to talk about God, at least not overtly. Instead, she discovered she’d been granted an invaluable chance to witness what she calls the “spiritual work of dying” - the work of finding or making meaning of one’s life, the experiences it contained and the people who have touched it. Instead of talking, she mainly listened: to stories of hope and regret, shame and pride, mystery and revelation and secrets held too long.

 

This isn’t a book about dying - it’s a book about living. Each of Egan’s patients taught her something; in this moving and beautiful book, she imparts their poignant and profound lessons.
