This beautiful little book is meant for all of us – because no one can escape the mystery of death. In the Introduction the author asks, “Might  there not be special ways to pray, opening us to confidence in victory, through God, even over death? If fear of death is at the bottom of uncertainty of our immortal destiny, then joyful hope must come not from philosophical arguments alone but from a growing trust in God.”

To nourish this trust, the book develops ways of prayer that are part of the spiritual life of those who look forward avidly to eternal happiness by presenting exercises in meditation and contemplation which have been gathered around certain familiar passages from Scripture….

Each chapter ends with suggestions for developing one’s own preparation for victory over death. (From the back cover)
