One of the best books available on caring for the dying, THE DYING TIME combines deep insight and down-to-earth practicality . . . This book demystifies the process of death, yet honors the sacredness of life’s final transition. Highly recommended.
— Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Prayer is Good Medicine
Living until we die can be difficult. This book can guide you through that time. It is practical, spiritual, and filled with wisdom.
— Bernie S. Siegel, M.D., author of Love, Medicine and Miracles
A manual of immediately practical assistance for humankind’s most significant-and often most frightening moments-, death. Besides an enthusiastic response from all who want to handle their own and others’ death intelligently, this book deserves to be part of the core curricula in all schools of medicine and ministry. Already singular in its field, it seems inevitable that THE DYING TIME will become a classic.
— George Fowler, author of Dance of a Fallen Monk.
Written by a consummate nurse and a humane attorney, THE DYING TIME addresses the multitude of everyday questions, concerns, and fears that arise in the process of dying. Preparing for death is a final step in living a healthy life. Furman and McNabb explain the complexity of dying in a simple yet personal voice.
