The Mystery of Death: Reflections on the Spiritual Tradition

Paulist Press
Free sample

Jean Donovan offers a Christian understanding of one of life's greatest mysteries -- death. She discourses on the subject and its concomitant issues-evil, pain, suffering, acceptance, and happiness. The result is The Mystery of Death, a probing, theological account of questions that deeply perplex humankind: "Where is God in the face of evil?" And "why does God permit human beings to suffer and die?" Complete with references from the Bible, Dante, and C.S. Lewis, among others, this is a compassionate and scholarly contribution to thanatology.
