Dying and the Virtues

Matthew Levering

$65.00

Hardback
:
Explores nine key virtues needed to die (and live) well

When death begins to strip away nearly everything that belongs to us, we discover that we need the virtues more than ever. We especially need to cultivate those virtues that can carry us through to the full and final fruition of our earthly journey.

In this book Matthew Levering investigates nine such virtues-love, hope, faith, penitence, gratitude, solidarity, humility, surrender, and courage-that dying persons need in order to prepare themselves for the end of life. Retrieving and engaging scriptural, theological, and contemporary resources ranging from the book of Job to present-day medical science, Levering journeys through the various stages and challenges of the dying process, beginning with the fear of annihilation and continuing through repentance and gratitude, suffering and hope, before arriving finally at the courage needed to say goodbye to one's familiar world.
