    1. There are many good works of theology which deal with the subject of death, both our own death and the death of our loved ones. These works should be read and meditated upon. However this work is different, than most, in that it addresses the rawest emotions that death engenders. It is one thing to know of the immortality of the soul and the life of the world to come, and it is another to know it when you look down upon the corpse of one you love. Dr. Martin knows these emotions and addresses th [...]


    2. Dr. Martin is a wordsmith of the highest caliber whose breadth of knowledge of literature is in plain evidence on every page of this book. I don't know if a page goes by in this short book in which there is not more than one quote from a renowned poet or author.Maybe it is a sign of my impatience or my lack of fondness for poetry, but I did not get as much out of this book as I probably should have.

    4. If you have troubles at first, keep reading. Read out load if need be. I still wonder about the intro and chapter 1. But it does fall into a type of puzzle whose pieces DO FIT (even if it seems that a piece or two were banged in with a hammer to fit this book/puzzle). I am interested in works mentioned, though the footnotes sort of stop before they should (number 12 isn't listed in my copy, and it is from reputable Catholic store.) Also, I do appreciate the author is highly educated, but could h [...]
