Death is not a topic that many people like talk about or even think about. Thinking about death is helpful for the believer. Thinking about death is helpful because it helps the believer live a Christ-centered life. It helps them live a Christ-centered life because it keeps them centered on the work of Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. Thinking about death is helpful because it helps the believer think through what kind of legacy he/she wants to leave behind when he/she dies.
This collection of essays will help you to think through death biblically. It will help you to face the difficult reality of death through the lens of Christ’s finished work. It will help you to live and die for the sake of the Gospel. Regardless of where the reader is at age wise or in one’s walk with God this book will help you. I encourage you to pick it up and read and learn about how to live and die well to the glory of God.
