Rate this:
The Final Deadline views death not as something to fear, nor as something to be-friend,A" as some writers have suggested, but as an inscrutable and occasionally stern spiritual guide. The reader may come to know death as a spiritual director or Zen master whose challenging lessons are ultimately benevolent, intended to call out the best in us.In contrast to religious traditions that attempt to shield us from death by promising eternal life or by denying or demanding physical existence,the author looks at death directly and with appreciation for what it teaches us about life.He writes movingly of the deaths that have shped his soul,whether those deaths occured through asassination,murder,suicide,accident,divorce,illness or AIDS. A few deaths were especially transforming and personal and will open readers' hearts to their own discoveries when facing The Final Dealine.
